Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr told a Bay Area radio station on his weekly appearance Monday that his injured right pinkie finger still hurt and was swollen, but he expected no lingering effects.
“I’m doing good, I’m doing good,” Carr told 95.7 The Game host JT Robert Quinn Youth Jersey The Brick. “Obviously, it’s a little sore, but that’s expected. But it should be good. Just get the swelling down, and it will be all right.”
A lot of us had an idea that Spurrier wouldn’t be back the next season once the calendar flipped to December. And a lot of us were right. Owner Dan Snyder replaced Spurrier with Joe Gibbs in the offseason. And I would say uncertainty surrounding the head coach had an impact on the locker room, practice and our overall game prep as we finished out the year.
Things just started to drag a bit. The pace of practice slowed down, the film study slipped and the game plans got lighter. We became that team sleepwalking through the daily routine. It was now “work” at the facility. That excitement of getting a fresh game plan? That’s for the playoff teams, the contenders. I’ve experienced that excitement. And it’s great.
“To come back like that, put the glove on and lead us down and get a big win like that, that’s good stuff,” Del Rio said Monday in his weekly media conference. “You were wondering how it was going to go when he first got back out there. And he settled in and started Rodger Saffold Youth Jersey firing away. … I think he’s going to be OK. He was able to come and finish, which was big, and I think he’ going to be fine, so we’ll see how the week goes.”
Carr missed just one series and played the remainder of the game exclusively in the shotgun while wearing the glove. Carr was wearing a bandage on the digit as he dressed after the game but came to the postgame news conference without a wrap. David Carr said his brother had the pinkie taped to his ring finger Sunday night.
Carr completed 11 of 18 passes for 139 yards and a touchdown and interception after the injury. He was 15-of-20 for 176 yards and a touchdown before getting hurt.
