Raiders' Derek Carr to be cleared for offseason workouts

Oakland received some encouraging news to counter the approval of the team's move to Las Vegas.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie confirmed Monday at the NFL owner’s meetings in Phoenix that quarterback Derek Carr is healing from his broken leg and will be ready for offseason workouts, ESPN reported.

Carr suffered a broken fibula in his right leg during the team's Week 16 win over the Colts and promptly underwent surgery three days later to repair the injury. He was initially given a recovery timetable of six to eight weeks, so he should be fully healthy when the team begins offseason activities April 17.

The Raiders finished last season with a 12-4 record and clinched a playoff berth for the first time since 2002 as Carr made his case for MVP honors before getting hurt.
