Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) returns to limited practice

Inside Bay Area - [Full Article]

It was a mere five-yard flare pattern to a running back -- and a wobbly one at that -- but it was the closest thing to a forward pass seen from Raiders quarterback Derek Carr in three weeks.

Carr was mostly a spectator during Tuesday's organized team activity apart from a few short throws during drills as he recovers from a reported injury to the ring finger on his throwing hand.

The Raiders, citing team policy, have kept the details of Carr's condition to themselves and coach Jack Del Rio remained circumspect following practice.

There has been no information regarding the injury nor an update on when Carr might be full-go other than he's expected to be ready for training camp in late July. Whether Carr will do much throwing at the mandatory minicamp June 9-11 remains to be seen.

Fantasy Impact: 

Carr finished as the #20 fantasy quarterback as a rookie, but averaged only 12.5 FP, which was only a half-point higher than fellow rookie Blake Bortles. The Raiders drafted Amari Cooper, so Carr now has a bona fide WR1 to throw to, and that should help his fantasy stock. He will be in the QB streaming/committee mix in his second season.
