Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's status is still impacted by his December foot injury that ended his 2022 season.

After the team's first on-field day of their offseason program, Raiders Coach Josh McDaniels confirmed that the veteran quarterback would miss OTAs before he and the team hit the field.

"You won't see him today," he said. "There's a number of guys that you're not going to see. Again, I'm not going to -- you'll see them -- I'm not going to run down the list every time here. But you know, no, he's going through his process just like we knew he would. Nothing has happened that would surprise us based on the information we had. Same thing with Tyree [Wilson]. Again, there's a number of guys you're not going to see out there today. Rehabbing the things that they're rehabbing. And again, we know we don't play a game for over 100 days. So they're doing everything they can do to get right, and when they're all ready to go, then eventually, they'll be back on the field."

McDaniels said it could take as long as training camp for Garoppolo to be healthy and practicing.

"I'd say with all these guys, it's about the same," McDaniels added. "Like I said, when they're ready, some of them may be ready before the spring is over, some of them may not. ... To try to rush them out there to get them out there in May, I mean, that's a poor decision. So doing a great job, all of these guys are doing a great job with what they can do in terms of the rehab. They're in all the meetings, all the football things that they can do that aren't jeopardizing anybody's ability to be ready to go here for the season. They're doing all those things, and the guys who aren't out there, like I said, they'll just, as soon as they're ready, they'll be there."

The Raiders' offseason workout schedule is as follows:

OTA Offseason workouts: May 22-23, May 25, May 31-June 2, June 12-15
