Bruce Gradkowski replaced Russell with the Raiders trailing 21-0 midway through the second quarter Sunday. Russell lost a fumble and threw two interceptions before leaving, giving him 13 turnovers this season.
Russell, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 draft, has been booed recently by the frustrated home crowd in Oakland as he has failed to complete even half his passes this season.
