Ponder takes first-team snaps with Raiders
As the Oakland Raiders began their second week of OTAs on Tuesday, starting quarterback Derek Carr was able to take some snaps on running plays during drills, showing he can hand off and pitch out with an injury to his right hand.
As for throwing the ball, that hasn’t happened yet. Free-agent addition Christian Ponder took snaps as the starting quarterback for the second week. A source close to Carr maintains the injury is minor (ESPN reported it was an issue with the ring finger on his throwing hand) and that he could be back in action soon.
