ALAMEDA, Calif. — 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 centre 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.
