If only to show Derek Carr's injury is not overly serious, the second year quarterback was taking snaps in Raiders OTA practices Tuesday, according to media in attendance including Jerry McDonald of the Bay Area News Group who noted he was going through drills handing the ball off and pitching to running backs.

Once the passing drills started, Carr was once again watching, as Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle shows here:

Carr has a finger injury on his throwing hand which had some conflicting reports initially with regard to the severity of the injury. One report said he could need surgery, while others said the injury was not serious at all. His agent then came out and said surgery was not needed and the injury is indeed nothing serious.

Carr's return to practice, even on a limited basis, is promising and could signal he will be back by minicamp in two weeks. Then again, it may be all he is able to do throughout OTA's and minicamp with a target for return for Training Camp in the end of July. Hard to say at this point.
