Raiders' Derek Carr: Still limited at practice

Carr (back) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

Per Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News, Carr said Wednesday that he expects to play in Sunday's game against the Chargers, which jibes with what coach Jack Del Rio said Monday. The quarterback even suggested that he might have played in last Sunday's 30-17 loss to the Ravens if it were his decision, hinting that the Oakland coaches and/or the team's medical stuff didn't give him clearance. While Carr's optimism is a good sign, there will still be doubt surrounding his Week 6 availability if he doesn't log a full practice by the end of the week. He was a limited practice participant all last week and was listed as questionable on the final injury report. Of course, a quick return likely would put him at greater risk of aggravating the transverse process fracture in his back.
