Will Raiders QB Derek Carr play Friday?

Here are some quick thoughts on some of the developments from the Oakland Raiders on Monday:

Rookie quarterback Derek Carr returned to practice on a limited basis after banging up his ribs and getting checked for a concussion Friday against Detroit. Raiders coach Dennis Allen said at his news briefing he is unsure if Carr will play Friday night at Green Bay (8 ET).

The Raiders will not rush Carr back, but obviously they would like to see him work in the preseason. With starter Matt Schaub struggling early in the preseason, the Raiders need to get as much of a look at Carr as possible.

But, off course, making sure he is healthy is important. We will have some more clarification on whether Carr will play against the Packers later in the week.

  • Meanwhile, 2013 first-round pick D.J. Hayden, who has been out with a foot injury, did extensive running on Monday. There is no timeline or his return.

  • Star fullback Marcel Reece has a foot injury that will require an MRI, Allen said.
