NAPA (KRON) — Friday the veterans reported to Raiders training camp in Napa. Well, most of the veterans that is.

KRON4’s Mark Carpenter is at camp today.

He reports that star left tackle Donald Penn is not showing up because he’s allegedly unhappy with his contract.

Penn only gave up one sack last season, but it was a critical one.

Quarterback Derek Carr suffered a broken leg on the play in that Christmas Eve game against the Colts.

When Carr went down, so did the team’s chance at advancing in the playoffs.

Mark Carpenter spoke with center Rodney Hudson today, who says he hopes Penn’s contract situation gets worked out soon.
