The Oakland Raiders’ anchors on both sides of the ball, Charles Woodson and Derek Carr are each day-to-day with shoulder and hand injuries, according to the team’s official website. 

Team officials have used the all-too-familiar coachspeak to shed light on murky injury news for both. Both are listed as on the official injury report, which at time of publication had yet to designate a game status. 

“[Carr is doing] better today than yesterday. Yesterday was still good, but today he appeared more confident with cutting it loose and those kind of things,” said offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave via

For Woodson, a shoulder injury that looked eerily similar to the broken collarbone he suffered as a member of the Green Bay Packers hasn’t kept him off the practice field in preparation for Week 2. He got in a limited session on Thursday and ike Carr, is day-to-day with no real timetable for return. 

His defensive coordinator shared some thoughts on the ailment. 

“You know Charles has been Charles for a long time, and he knows his body as well as anybody,” said defensive coordinator Ken Norton, Jr. “It’s still early in the week. You still have a few days left. Every injury is different, everybody is different. Everybody deals with pain differently. So we just have to go day by day.”

 Carr appears headed for the “probable” designation after getting in full practices both Wednesday and Thursday, while Woodson’s status is more uncertain. For both key players, Friday will be an important day on practice field.
