Derek Carr completed 19-of-35 passes for 260 yards and two touchdowns in the Raiders' Week 13 win over the Bills.
He also tossed a two-point conversion to Seth Roberts following Latavius Murray's second touchdown run to give the Raiders a 14-point, fourth-quarter lead. Carr wasn't very sharp in this one, probably due to his injured pinkie finger, but he should have had another touchdown to Michael Crabtree had Crabtree not committed one of the most egregious drops we've seen in the end zone. The two later hooked up for a three-yard touchdown. Carr's second score was a lofted 37-yarder to Amari Cooper allowing Cooper to do damage after the catch. Carr will be tough to trust as a QB1 on a short week on Thursday night in Kansas City. Dec 4 - 7:40 PM

Derek Carr practiced without a glove on his injured throwing hand Thursday.

Practicing in full, it's the clearest sign yet that Carr's pinkie issue isn't going to be a concern for Week 13. Carr is a back-end QB1 against the Bills' decent defense.

Updating an earlier report, Derek Carr (finger) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

Carr dislocated a couple of his fingers in Sunday's win over Carolina but only ended up missing one series. He'll be a full go Sunday against Buffalo, though he may wear a glove for extra support. The MVP candidate will be a QB1 in Week 13.

Derek Carr (finger) is participating in Wednesday's practice.

This is not a surprise after Carr played through the injury against the Panthers. He was wearing #TheGlove on his right hand, so it is likely he will continue to need some protection until the dislocated fingers heal. Carr might also take fewer snaps from under center. His availability against the Bills does not appear to be in question, however.
Nov 30 - 5:23 PM

According to his brother David Carr, Derek Carr is dealing with two dislocations in his finger.

The finger was dislocated in two places, and is on Carr's throwing hand. Despite all that, Carr was able to finish Sunday's game and has expressed utmost confidence about his ability to play this week against the Bills.

Derek Carr doesn't expect his finger injury to be a concern for Week 13.

"It's a little sore, but that's expected," Carr said in a radio interview. "But should be good. Just get some swelling down and we'll be alright." Carr might get in a limited practice on Wednesday, but there's little doubt about his status after he played through the issue against the Panthers.
Nov 28 - 1:49 PM

Derek Carr completed 26-of-38 passes for 315 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Raiders' 35-32, Week 12 win over the Panthers.

Carr's first touchdown was a two-yard hookup with Seth Roberts on the opening series, tossing it up over CB Robert McClain in the back of the end zone. A short Latavius Murray touchdown and a Khalil Mack pick-six got the Raiders out to a 24-7 lead at half. Carr then dislocated his pinkie finger on his throwing hand in the third quarter, forcing him to miss one series in the locker room. On his first possession back, Carr threw a pick to Thomas Davis, setting the Panthers up to take a 25-24 lead. Carr marched the Raiders back, however, hooking up with Clive Walford for a red-zone touchdown over the middle. The 9-2 Raiders keep rolling and will host the Bills in Week 13. Carr will be a back-end QB1 in that matchup.

Derek Carr (finger) returned in the third quarter against the Panthers.

Derek Carr exited Week 12 against the Panthers with a finger injury.

Taking a snap from under center, the ball smacked right into Carr's pinkie finger on his right (throwing) hand and dislocated or broke it. He ran off the field immediately right to the Raiders' training staff on the sideline. Carr appeared to be in a great deal of pain before going to the locker room. Matt McGloin is now in the game with the Raiders leading 24-13 in the third.
Nov 27 - 6:23 PM

Derek Carr completed 21-of-31 passes for 295 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in the Raiders' 27-20, Week 11 win over the Texans.

Squaring off in Mexico City on Monday night, both offenses got off to pretty slow starts, heading into halftime deadlocked at 10-10. But at the high altitude with the thin air, both teams' defenses appeared to run out of gas early in the second half, and the scoring started to pick up a bit. Carr's first touchdown was a 17-yard hookup with Jalen Richard, who beat ILB Benardrick McKinney's one-on-one coverage with ease. Carr then hooked up with FB Jamize Olawale on a busted coverage for a 75-yard score. What proved to be the game-winner in the fourth quarter, Carr hit Amari Cooper on a screen for a 35-yard score. The first-place 8-2 Raiders will host the Panthers next Sunday. Carr will be a QB1 in that matchup.
Nov 21 - 11:53 PM

Derek Carr completed 20-of-31 passes for 184 yards in Oakland's Week 9 win over the Broncos.

Carr managed the game effectively, but wasn't asked to do much. Oakland scored all three of their touchdowns on goal-line runs. It's the first time Carr has been held without a TD this year, though he's had just one touchdown in 4-of-9 starts. With the win, the Raiders are in the driver seat of the AFC West. Carr will get a matchup with the Texans when Oakland comes off their bye in Week 11.
Nov 6 - 11:55 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Raiders "are prioritizing a new deal" for Derek Carr this offseason.

Carr is under contract through 2017, but the Raiders rightfully do not want the headache of a contract-year quarterback. They also should be wary of an ever increasing price tag considering how well Carr has played this season. As it is now, a source told Schefter to expect a "Luck-ish" sized deal for Carr. Andrew Luck earned a five-year, $123 million contract last summer.

Derek Carr completed 40-of-59 passes for 513 yards and four touchdowns in the Raiders' 30-24, Week 8 overtime win over the Bucs.

Carr set a team record for yards as the Raiders set an NFL record for penalties (24). His 513 yards were tied for the 10th most in league history. Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree were open all afternoon for chunk gains, and Carr rarely missed. Carr is so calm in the pocket, and so precise with his ball placement. His fantasy production has been up and down, but Carr is getting better every week as a field general. There's no longer any question that he's a legitimate franchise quarterback. That being said, he'll be more QB2 than QB1 against the Broncos' elite defense in Week 9.
Oct 30 - 4:50 PM

Derek Carr completed 23-of-37 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown in Oakland's Week 7 win over Jacksonville.

Carr hit Michael Crabtree on a third-and-goal at the end of the first half for his only touchdown. He didn't have anything going outside of Crabtree and went full game manager with Oakland protecting a lead. Despite getting the Raiders another win, Carr has disappointed with plus matchups the last two weeks. He'll be a QB2 against the Bucs in Week 7.
Oct 23 - 5:09 PM

Derek Carr completed 22-of-34 passes for 225 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Raiders' Week 6 loss to the Chiefs.

Carr could only get anything going with Amari Cooper, hooking up with his No. 1 receiver 10 times for 129 yards. Nine of those connections came in the first half, and the Raiders offense never got off the ground in a rain-soaked game. Carr's lone touchdown was a three-yard hookup with Andre Holmes. His interception went to CB Marcus Peters. Carr will look to rebound Week 7 at the Jaguars.
