It's been reported that the Oakland Raiders reached out to free agent David Garrard following an injury to Jason Campbell on Sunday. A move like that would make sense considering the Raiders have just Kyle Boller and Terrelle Pryor on the roster after Campbell's injury, which could keep him out for nearly the entire season (or more).
Apparently you can scratch Garrard off Oakland's list. Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that Garrard is undergoing immediate surgery on a herniated disc in his back.
No word on how long that will keep him out but it makes you wonder if Garrard will play at all this year. Most teams that need an upgrade at the position have already made that move and time is running short for Garrard. His best shot may be waiting for an injury later in the season, if he is able to return this season.
