ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Derek Carr took a snap and threw a deep pass to Amari Cooper. Following some initial concern after Carr was knocked out of Oakland’s season opener with a hand injury, the Raiders are expecting to have their starting quarterback back on the field Sunday against Baltimore.
Nerdy Football Analysis: This is an encouraging sign for the Raiders’ offense heading into week 2 where Oakland will be hosting a tough Ravens defense. The Ravens held Denver’s offense in check last week by limiting the Broncos to only 219 total yards. If Carr continues to practice like he did today, HC Jack Del Rio will likely give him the nod even if he isn’t at full strength.
