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 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.

Carr was holding a glove when he left the field following walkthrough on Wednesday and kept his hand in the pocket of his sweatshirt while talking the media.
