Derek Carr's agent said Raiders QB won't need surgery
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/20/15) Derek Carr's agent, Tim Younger, said the Raiders quarterback will not need surgery on his injured right ring finger, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
It was previously reported by ESPN that surgery was a potential option for Carr.
“I don’t know where this idea came up that he’s going to be having surgery,” Younger said. “The situation, I don’t even want to call it an injury, is very minor, and we’re just being cautious.”
Carr has been held out of team activities to start the offseason.
Report: Raiders QB Derek Carr dealing with right ring finger injury
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is reportedly dealing with a right ring finger injury that may require surgery, according to ESPN NFL Insider Chris Mortensen.
Carr, who missed the first day of OTAs Tuesday, may miss the rest of the activities but is optimistic about training camp, according to the report. Carr threw for 3,270 yards with 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 2014.
Raiders QB Derek Carr misses first OTAs practice due to injury
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was absent from the first full-team practice during OTAs on Tuesday due to an undisclosed injury, according to the Associated Press.
Coach Jack Del Rio did not further comment on Carr's status since he said it is not in his policy to discuss offseason injuries. He only said Carr was one of a handful of players who could not partake in practice.
Carr started all 16 games as a rookie in 2014. He completed 58.1 percent of his passes for 3,270 yards, 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He had a 76.6 quarterback rating as the Raiders went 3-13.
Derek Carr impressed with Raiders pick Amari Cooper
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/1/15) The Raiders drafted WR Amari Cooper in the first round, and playing in Nick Saban's all-business Alabama program prepared him for the NFL.
"He wanted us to work hard. He wanted guys of high character," Cooper said of Saban, per the Mercury News. "He wanted us to be diligent in our approach to watching film, taking practice really serious. He believes if you practice well, you play well."
Quarterback Derek Carr saw the result of that work ethic when he watched film of his new receiver. "He's very good in and out of his breaks," Carr said on Oakland's 95.7. "You know he's going to create separation. He's going to make all the other receivers better. Everyone on this team should be happy to have him."
Jack Del Rio wants Raiders to offer stronger rushing attack
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) In Raiders coach Jack Del Rio's mind, quarterback Derek Carr was asked to do too much in his rookie season.
Carr threw the ball 599 times and completed 348 of those passes for 3,270 yards, 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Now that Del Rio is at the helm, he's looking to run the ball a lot more to balance things out.
"I thought it was all about Derek last year," Del Rio said, via the San Francisco Chronicle. "I want to be able to run the ball, play good defense."
The Raiders are likely to rely on Latavius Murray to be the feature back now that Maurice Jones-Drew has retired and Darren McFadden has left for Dallas. Del Rio believes that a balanced attack should open the game up more for Carr in his second season.
"If we do things around him, he really has a chance to flourish," Del Rio said. "He is really accurate. He has a huge upside."
|Derek Carr wasn't a great Fantasy option as a rookie in 2014, but he proved the Raiders might not have to keep looking for a quarterback of the future. Carr played well as Oakland's starter in his rookie campaign with 3,270 passing yards, 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions on 58.1 percent completions, and he added 92 rushing yards and a touchdown. He was a better Fantasy quarterback then Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles, and now we'll see how Carr does in his sophomore campaign. His receiving corps needs work with James Jones, Andre Holmes and Mychal Rivera as his best options, but Carr showed some potential with at least 18 Fantasy points in four games, including two of his final four outings. We hope he can build off that performance, and he's worth a look as a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback in deep leagues this season.
