Raiders' Derek Carr: Not listed on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr (general soreness) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Coach Jon Gruden mentioned that Carr felt sore after Monday's 33-13 loss to the Rams, but it was probably just the normal bumps and bruises of the territory. The Raiders will have another tricky matchup this weekend when they travel to Denver, facing a defense that had six sacks and three takeaways against the Seahawks in Week 1.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Playing this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jon Gruden said Carr and other starters will play into the second quarter of Friday's preseason game against Green Bay, Matt Schneidman of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Gruden held out most of his key players for the second week of the preseason in a matchup with a Rams team they'll face again in Week 1. Friday's game will be the real opportunity to get a look at the first-team offense, though Gruden doesn't plan to leave Carr in the game beyond halftime. The 27-year-old quarterback completed two of four passes for 11 yards in the preseason opener against Detroit.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Resting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr will not play in Saturday's preseason tilt against the Rams for rest purposes, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The Raiders are schedule to open the season against the Rams, so it perplexed coach Jon Gruden when they also showed up on their preseason schedule. As a result, he has opted to rest Carr and several other starters in an execution of gamesmanship. The quarterback will likely see some action in the team's third exhibition game next week versus the Packers.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Comfortable with Gruden's offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr already seems to have a strong command of coach Jon Gruden's offense, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Known for his intensity and complex terminology, Gruden is asking Carr to take on a more active role making adjustments at the line of scrimmage. The 27-year-old quarterback seems to be responding as well as anyone could've hoped, though he only completed two of four passes for 11 yards in the preseason opener against Detroit. As encouraging as the positive reports from training camp may seem, Carr is still surrounded by uncertainty in an offense with a new coaching staff and no clear identity. The Raiders appear to have upgraded their receiving corps by swapping out Michael Crabtree and Cordarrelle Patterson for Jordy Nelson, Martavis Bryant and Ryan Switzer, but they made other moves hinting at an increased emphasis on the rushing attack, signing FB Keith Smith and TEs Lee Smith and Derek Carrier. New offensive coordinator Greg Olson has typically deployed pass-heavy attacks, whereas Gruden, the unquestioned shot-caller of the operation, has a more balanced track record.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Getting along with Gruden
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr said he enjoys working with new Raiders coach Jay Gruden, Jerry McDonald of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

There was some concern Gruden's intensity would irk the 27-year-old quarterback, but that doesn't seem to be the case so far. The bigger concern is the mystery surrounding the identity of Oakland's offense, as Gruden was aggressive in adding wide receivers Jordy Nelson and Martavis Bryant to replace Michael Crabtree, yet also gave significant guaranteed money to a pair of blocking tight ends (Lee Smith, Derek Carrier) and a traditional lead-blocking fullback (Keith Smith). The offseason moves suggest Gruden wants to keep Carr in the range of 500-550 pass attempts while giving Marshawn Lynch more carries (207 last year), but the plan also requires improvement from an Oakland defense that surrendered a 68.1 completion percentage in 2017. For what it's worth, offensive coordinator Greg Olson is known for pass-heavy attacks, including during his previous stint with the Raiders, which featured 599 attempts from Carr as a rookie in 2014.
