Derek Carr running with first-team at practice, Schaub dealing with sore elbow
Rookie Derek Carr was the Raiders' first-team quarterback at Sunday's practice, and will play in Thursday's preseason finale against Seattle.
Matt Schaub is nursing a "sore elbow," so Carr is running with the ones. Carr has recovered fully from his concussion and rib injury, which were suffered in the Raiders' second preseason game. If Carr plays well against the Seahawks, we would not entirely rule out the possibility he starts Week 1.

Matt Schaub is now battling a "sore elbow" at Raiders camp.
An arm injury doesn't explain Schaub's inability to move or make sound decisions, but could be telling in regards to his noticeable shortage of arm strength. Schaub has looked genuinely Matt Flynnian in preseason games. Perhaps the sore elbow will be the excuse Dennis Allen needs to put Schaub out of his misery. He's been outplayed by rookie Derek Carr throughout August.
