Former Oakland Raiders OT Bruce Campbell was caught on tape at a Walmart getting into a physical confrontation. What’s more, Campbell found himself at the short end of the stick after being the one to instigate the altercation. Bruce Campbell reportedly landed in the hospital with a broken jaw after running up on a patron and swinging wildly.
Campbell was caught with a devastating series of blows in a street fight that barely lasted more than 10 seconds. He was tagged multiple times and continued to stumble all over the floor before being mounted. Punches began wailing down on him, and the viral video cut out right when some more heavy strikes were about to land.
It’s unclear exactly what brought about the contentious interaction between the former Raiders and Jets OT and the patron. However, it’s clear that the situation was severe enough to warrant what seemed like an immediate scuffle. Campbell’s current condition is largely unknown as the situation continues to develop in real-time.
NFL’s Bruce Campbell: An Overview
Bruce Campbell was picked up by the Oakland Raiders (currently Las Vegas Raiders) in the 2010 NFL Draft. He fell short of his initial projection by analysts who saw him being scooped up in the top 10 of the draft. Instead, Campbell joined the Oakland-based outfit as the 106th overall pick in the fourth round of the draft.
He was never placed as a starter in a single one of his 14 games during his tenure with the Oakland Raiders that ended in 2011. Bruce Campbell bounced around to the Carolina Panthers, Washington Redskins, and New York Jets for no more than a year each. However, it’s important to note that his one-year deal with the Redskins (currently Washington Football Team) was voided after failing his team physical.
Bruce Campbell’s time with the NFL came to a close after he was released by the Jets in August 2014. Following his release, he went over to the CFL and played for the Toronto Argonauts and the Saskatchewan Roughriders. He hasn’t competed at a high level ever since he was released by the Roughriders in 2018.
