Quarterback Derek Carr is hoping to be at his post for the Las Vegas Raiders after leaving last week’s meet due to a groin injury.
Carr took part in a few drills on Tuesday, five days after leaving the game against the Los Angeles Chargers due to a first-quarter injury. He shared rehearsals with reserve quarterback Marcus Mariota as the Raiders (7-7) prepare to take on the Miami Dolphins Saturday night.
“I’m here every time I’m allowed to get treatment and all this, all these tests,” said Carr. I want everyone to be aware of my condition. We’ll see how it progresses. But if it’s only about me, I’m going to do everything I can to be on the field (Saturday). »
Carr has played through injury and has only missed two starts in seven seasons in the NFL. He fractured his ankle during week 16 of NFL playoffs in 2016, preventing him from playing in the playoffs for the first time in his career, and missed only one game in 2017 after fracturing a vertebra.
Carr even played a full season with a sports hernia with Fresno State University in 2012. As such, he will do everything in his power to be in his position for Raiders head coach Jon Gruden on Saturday.
