Derek Carr remains on the right path as he works his way back from a finger injury.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the second-year quarterback has been cleared for participation in minicamp, according to a source informed of his prognosis. Rapoport added that Carr might not throw at full strength during the minicamp practices, but he is expected to be “100 percent” for the start of training camp.
Carr has been battling an issue to his ring finger that has kept him from throwing regularly during the Raiders‘ offseason program. He threw a few short passes last week during OTAs, but has mostly handed the ball off when not watching from the sidelines.
The Raiders have not disclosed much about the injury, but the latest plan indicates Carr is making progress and the team is confident the finger isn’t a long-term concern.
