Even though CB David Amerson did not practice this week, he was officially listed as DOUBTFUL to play Sunday against the Patriots in Mexico City. He did work with trainers on a side field. RT Marshall Newhouse, meanwhile is QUESTIONABLE after being limited Friday, a day after not practicing.

How the NFL's first foray into Mexico went south, and back north

Playing in Mexico is old hat for the NFL today, but the league's first attempt to do so in 1968 didn't go as planned. It's a tale of violent protests, a nimble ticket salesman, a QB's broken leg and an old-school football brawl.

The bye week apparently did little, if anything, to help CB David Amerson's Injured foot heal as he again missed practice on Thursday. Also, RT Marshall Newhouse was out a day after being LIMITED.

Derek Carr said he did not watch Monday night's Raiders stadium groundbreaking ceremony from Las Vegas. "To be honest," he said, "I didn't know it was happening until I saw it pop up on the phone and I was like, ‘Oh, sick, they did it.' I was not paying attention." Here's a pic, then, of what he missed live.

Derek Carr, on if he might expect a green laser pointer in his eyes Sunday in Mexico: "No, no, no, no, no. I think that going down there is a home field advantage. I'm not worried about the laser pointers. I think that's for the other guys." Then, Carr laughed. Paging Tom Brady.
