In the end, Campbell completed six of 15 passing for 72 yards, while throwing four touchdowns -- two on interceptions that were returned for touchdowns. Interceptions are bad, but these... yikes.

If Jason Campbell went into Thursday's game looking to impress anyone as the logical backup to Andy Dalton, taking a step back could be an understatement. The best description we've mustered is "mixed", maybe "shaky" or "inconsistent". And that's going through our "being nice" filter.

In the end, Campbell completed six of 15 passes for 72 yards, while throwing four touchdowns -- two on interceptions, which were returned for touchdowns. Interceptions are bad, but these... yikes.

Then in the third quarter, Campbell took a shot on his throwing elbow and was pulled for the night. Trainers wrapped his elbow and according to Bengals.com, Campbell will undergo a series of tests to see how severe the injury is.

Campbell played 35 snaps (49 percent) during Cincinnati's 41-39 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Third-string quarterback Matt Scott took over with far better results -- though arguably against lesser players than what Campbell played against. Still, Scott completed seven of 11 passes for 66 yards, two passing touchdowns and a game-high 68 yards rushing.
