Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr left Friday’s preseason game against the Detroit Lions with a concussion and a rib injury.
However, it looks like Carr’s injury may not be serious since he returned to practice Monday, according to a tweet from NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport.

Carr will still need to be cleared for playing time in Friday’s game against the Green Bay Packers to make sure his concussion is not too serious.
He is not expected to pose a threat to Matt Schaub’s starting job even if he returns though.
