Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has a right ring finger injury and may require surgery, reports ESPN's Chris Mortensen. 

Carr did not participate in the Raiders first full-team practice since the NFL draft on Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. Oakland head coach Jack Del Rio told reporters it's not his policy to discuss off-season injuries and said Carr could not participate in the practice.

Mortensen reports that Carr's status for the team's OTAs is in question, but the Raiders are optimistic about Carr participating in training camp.

Carr is coming off a rookie season that saw him throw for 3,270 yards, 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. The former second-round draft pick completed 58.1% of his passes and started all 16 games.

Oakland finished 3–13 last season. The Raiders chose wide receiver Amari Cooper with their first-round draft pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
