Quote of the day
Wide catcher Bryan Edwards gave a resounding endorsement to the new Henry Ruggs model shoes released by adidas last week.
The bold blue sneakers with three of the famous white stripes and metallic gold hints sell for $ 100, but Edwards is hoping to get a discount for his colleagues.
âWith Henry being my teammate, I think I should get a free pair. I really like the shoe, âsaid the second-year catcher. “It’s a really slick look.”
The day running back Josh Jacobs returned to training with limited ability after missing two games with an ankle injury, teammate Jalen Richard also returned to the pitch. His appearance opened the 21-day window during which the team must decide whether to bring him back from the injured reserve.
Safety Roderic Teamer, who has yet to play this season with an ankle injury, also participated in a limited session on Thursday, the team’s first training of the week.
Cornerbacks Nate Hobbs and Trayvon Mullen were both limited by shoulder injuries. Defensive end Solomon Thomas was limited by a knee injury.
Carl Nassib (toe), Denzel Perryman (Achilles / quad) and Dallin Leavitt (concussion) all trained hard.
Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was named the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Month for September.
Carr led the Raiders to a 3-0 record while throwing for a high 1,203 yards on 88 of 136 passes. He also had six touchdowns while compiling a 101.4 quarterback rating.
He downplayed the importance of honor.
âIt still means something good, but after three weeks it’s just like ‘Thank you, cool, well done’,â he said. âI appreciate it, but it will be a cooler day for my kids than for me. â¦ I hope putting that aside isn’t a problem, but at this point it doesn’t mean much.
Carr is the fourth quarterback in NFL history to throw for 1,200 yards in the first three games of a season.
Carr is only the third Raiders quarterback to earn this honor with Rich Gannon in November 2001 and Jay Schroeder in December 1990.
Current Raiders head coach Jon Gruden was Gannon’s coach in 2001.
This is the first time Carr has won this honor. It is not sure if there is some kind of trophy or a tangible souvenir of the award.
“I think you maybe get an Instagram post that says, ‘Good job, mate,'” he joked. “That’s about it, I think.”

Carr said his working relationship with coach Jon Gruden has reached a point where he starts calling the games in the caucus before Gruden has finished communicating the full verbiage into the headset.
He also appreciates the trust Gruden has placed in him to ask him about his preference between two potential options in particular situations.
This development in their relationship is at least a factor in the 3-0 start and the offensive explosion.
âIt’s still a work in progress,â Carr said. “I don’t mean to say we’re here because I never want to feel like you’ve got anywhere.”
“But it’s those little things where we feel like we’re in the right place.”
Carr joked that the success was impressive for two guys from small towns across the country, which seemed like a way to compete for last week’s win for his alma mater, Fresno State.
âHe’s just a Dayton coach and I’m just a Fresno quarterback,â Carr said. âWe’re just trying to do our thing. We always do our best.
“Even though we beat UNLV.”
