ALAMEDA, Calif. – The Oakland Raiders have concluded their final practice before playing at Green Bay on Friday night, and coach Dennis Allen said the team has not decided if rookie Derek Carr will play.
Carr suffered an injury to his ribs and a concussion Friday night in a victory over Detroit. He practiced some the past three days. Carr has been upbeat and lucid. Still, Allen said the Raiders will be cautious with their second-round pick.
In other Raiders notes:
Fullback Marcel Reece practiced fully for the second straight day. He is dealing with a foot injury he suffered against the Lions. It is not known if he will play Friday, although Allen said he should be healthy. Still, the team may not want to risk it. Both Reece, who was wearing a walking boot after practice Wednesday, and Allen said they do not think the injury will linger.
Second-year cornerback DJ Hayden worked on the side on Tuesday. The Raiders have to decide next week if they are going put him on the physically unable to perform list to start the season. If so, he’d miss at least the first six weeks of the season.
Receiver Brice Butler has not been cleared from a concussion yet.
Allen said receiver Andre Holmes needs to work on his consistency.
