Raiders QB Carr says no limitations from injured finger

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) Derek Carr says he will have no limitations this week because of the injured pinkie on his throwing hand that forced him to miss a series last week.

Carr deflected all questions about the finger Wednesday, saying repeatedly that it's ''doing great.'' Carr wore a glove on his right hand during the open period of practice and once again took no snaps from center in front of the media. But he was listed as a full participant.

Carr dislocated the finger while taking a snap on the second play from scrimmage in the second half of Sunday's 35-32 win over Carolina. He left for a series before returning to play the rest of the game with a glove on his throwing hand. Carr took all snaps out of the shotgun to protect the finger and led the Raiders to a comeback win.

The Raiders did have four players who were unable to participate in practice because of injuries: cornerback DJ Hayden (hamstring), defensive tackles Stacy McGee (ankle) and Darius Latham (ankle) and linebacker Shilique Calhoun (knee).

Cornerback David Amerson returned on a limited basis after missing the previous game with a knee injury.
