Hue Jackson mum on starting QB

Oakland Raiders coach Hue Jackson refused to reveal who his starting quarterback will be Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. His choices: journeyman Kyle Boller or newly-acquired former Pro Bowl quarterback Carson Palmer. "I know who the starting quarterback is," Jackson told reporters.

There were reports that Palmer was going to start, but they have since backtracked and said now that Boller is likely to start. Boller worked with the first-team offense today.

Palmer is likely dealing with a lot of rust.

"I’ll make the right decision for our football team as we draw closer to the game," Jackson said. "I’m not in a rush. I’m going to watch this tape, watch the practice tape, sit down, meet with my staff, talk to upper management, Amy Trask and Mark Davis, and then make the right decision.”
