ALAMEDA – Derek Carr hasn’t been on an injury report as a professional. That’s coming this week, heading into Thursday night’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
He was limited in Monday’s practice with a quadriceps strained early in Sunday’s loss to the San Diego Chargers. Both Carr and interim head coach Tony Sparano said it isn’t expected to jeopardize his playing status.
“I played the whole game with (the injury), and it’s just tight more than anything else, especially after a plane trip and a night’s sleep,” Carr said. “I’ll be okay. I’m not worried about it at all.”
Sparano said Carr took his reps on Monday night, and that the team would continue to monitor his progress.
Other injury notes from Raiders practice:
-- Cornerback TJ Carrie missed Monday’s workout with an ankle injury he’s been battling the past few weeks. He’s been able to play with limited practice work, though Sparano hopes the injury won’t be something he’ll have to manage throughout the season.
“I certainly hope its not something he’ll have to manage,” Sparano said. “He played the whole game (on Sunday), but he was a little sore. He missed some reps today, but hopefully he can get back in there tomorrow.”
-- Left guard Gabe Jackson returned to practice on a limited basis, his first such foray since injuring his knee Nov. 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.
-- Cornerback Carlos Rogers continues to miss time with a knee injury. There is no timetable for his return.
