Raiders QB Derek Carr not limited in minicamp practice


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2015) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was able to lead the first team in every drill during the first day of mandatory minicamp, according to CSN Bay Area

Carr had a finger injury that appeared worrisome earlier this offseason. However, Carr said the injury was mostly a non-issue and that he knew he'd be ready to go this week. 

“It was so minor but it was blown up so much,” Carr said. “…I just had to go through a bit of rehab and stretching. I felt ready to rock a long time ago, and I felt even better today. We’re not going to get too much into it, but I’m 100 percent. If you could be more than 100, that’s where I’d be. I’m fired up to be working and I’m ready for training camp.”

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/8/2015) The Raiders have cleared quarterback Derek Carr to participate in next week's minicamp, but the signal-caller likely will still be dealing with a finger issue on his throwing hand, per NFL Network's Albert Breer. 

While Carr may not be fully healthy at minicamp, the team expects him to be fine for training camp. Carr threw for 3,270 yards with 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 2014. 


Derek Carr does light throwing for Raiders


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr threw some short passes at the start of Tuesday's practice, but he still isn't taking on a normal workload, at least for the portions of practice open to the media. 

Carr is recovering from an injury to a finger on his throwing hand. Coach Jack Del Rio didn't give a timetable on his recovery. "He's doing well," Del Rio, per ESPN. "We will do what we can when we can."

Left tackle Donald Penn added that he was "not concerned at all" about Carr's injury. 


Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) has yet to start throwing


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr did not participate in any passing drills during Tuesday's OTA practice, according to the Bay Area News Group. 

Carr has an injured right ring finger that he's not contemplating surgery for. He was able to take snaps and make pitches during practice. Though he's missing the reps now, Carr is expected to be back by the start of training camp. 


Derek Carr's agent said Raiders QB won't need surgery


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) 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
(5/19/2015) 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
(5/19/2015) 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
(5/1/2015) 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
(3/24/2015) 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."


Raiders QB Derek Carr enthused about no-huddle offense


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/10/2015) New Raiders offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave will install a no-huddle offense, and quarterback Derek Carr can't wait, reports ESPN.com.

"My last two years at Fresno State were 100 percent no-huddle, and I love it. I’m very comfortable in it," Carr told the website. "They are building this offense around me, and I’m really excited about it. I lit up when they told me." 

Carr said he's unsure how much the Raiders will use the no-huddle, but expects it to be "more than average," the report said. Last year the Raiders mainly used the no-huddle in desperation comeback mode.

This season, look for the no-huddle throughout games.

"We want to play fast," Carr said. "We want to put pressure on the defense. We want to go 100 miles per hour and cause confusion for the defense. It can be a lot of fun."

Musgrave was the quarterbacks coach in Philly last season, working for up-tempo coach Chip Kelly.


Jack Del Rio calls Derek Carr 'a special young talent'


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/10/2015) New Raiders coach Jack Del Rio is pumped up about working with quarterback Derek Carr, who threw for 3,270 yards and 21 touchdowns with 12 interceptions as a rookie.

“Carr’s a special young talent,” Del Rio told The Jim Rome Show. “He’s got a really quick release, good decision maker; he’s shown some of that grit we’re looking for, some of that toughness, so he’s a guy that we feel like we have an opportunity to build around.”

Carr needs to improve his completion percentage (58.1) and take better care of the ball under pressure after losing four fumbles last season.


Oakland could part ways with QB Matt Schaub


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/5/2015) Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub is scheduled to make $5.5 million in 2015. It's "almost a certainty he'll have to restructure or take the risk of being cut by Oakland," reports ESPN.com.

Schaub turns 34 in June and dealt with elbow soreness last season. His salary is commensurate with starting quarterbacks, not a clear backup.

The Raiders would like a veteran to mentor Derek Carr, but not at Schaub's current price, the report said.


New Raiders OC hoping to bring Eagles offense to the West Coast


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Newly hired Raiders offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said Tuesday he thinks the offense he worked with in Phliadelphia could fit pretty well in Oakland.

"We talked about tailoring our system to fit them, but I've got a hunch that a lot of the things we did in Philadelphia will match up real nice and be effective," Musgrave said on a conference call.

Oakland ranked dead last in offense in 2014 with rookie quarterback Derek Carr at the helm. But Musgrave and a few other coaches were attracted to the job because of Carr.

"The presence of Derek was definitely a factor," Musgrave said. "I think a number of coaches have expressed interest in being Jack's offensive coordinator I know he talked to a number of people, and one of the main reasons would be the presence of Derek Carr."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Carr opened the second quarter by finding a wide-open James Jones in the back of the end zone for a three-yard score. He hit his fullback on a one-yard flare route with less than three minutes left in the game to extend his team's lead to nine points, an insurance touchdown that came in handy when the Bills were able to answer with a score a few minutes later.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Carr has been a rare bright spot on a 2-12 team. He has played for the dismissed Dennis Allen and for current coach Tony Sparano. The Raiders are expected to make plenty of changes in the offseason, but Carr hopes Sparano is not a casualty.

"Right now, I am focused on playing my heart out for [Sparano] because I love him," Carr told ESPN. "I love him to death. I love playing for him. He pushes the heck out of me, and I love it. That's how I like to be coached. ... Not knowing [what the future holds] is hard, but I am grateful that I do get to play for him now."
