    Charlie Frye is probably done with the Raiders.

    When Oakland Raiders back-up quarterback Charlie Frye was a Cleveland Brown, he was such a favorite that fans would actually dress up as an order of french fries as a tribute to him.

    He has not caught on nearly as well in Oakland.

    Frye undergoes wrist surgery Wednesday, the Oakland Tribune reports, and the Raiders do not know how long he'll be out. Frye's impact has been so minimal that is seems likely he will be handed an injury settlement and sent on his way.

    "There's an issue with the wrist," Raiders coach Tom Cable told the Thoughts From The Dark Side blog. "I don't know the medical terms of it. He's having a procedure (Wednesday)."

    This is after the guy has not practiced in two weeks, and Kyle Boller has performed adequately enough to take over the No. 3 quarterback spot.

    Since Frye's injury occurred in training camp, he is a likely candidate for an injury settlement.

    Frye had one touchdown and four interceptions with the Raiders last season.
