Raiders tackle Donald Penn said last month that quarterback Derek Carr was already closing in on being back to full strength after a broken leg ended his 2016 season in December.

General Manager Reggie McKenzie reaffirmed that notion on Monday at the NFL owner’s meetings in Phoenix. McKenzie said that Carr will be a full-go for the team’s offseason workout program, via Paul Gutierrez of

The Raiders can begin their offseason programs on April 17. OTAs take place in May before a final veteran mini-camp in June.

Carr sustained the broken leg on Dec. 24 in a 33-25 victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

    As long as he’s healthy, no reason they can’t win 7-8 SB’s

    Derek will not like the sins of Las Vegas as a believer of the ultimate fairy tale!

    Great morning to be a 49er fans. Have the Raiders left town, yet? Can tear down Mt Davis for the Athletics yet?

    Great news if Carr is certified fully-sound medically (both his leg and his pinky-finger). What I’m especially waiting for is the news that Carr is inked to a lengthy extension. Carr’s next contract will be deservedly huge so the Raiders should think very carefully before even thinking of spending any significant $$$ on the likes of Marshawn Lynch – extending young, homegrown stars like Carr, Mack and Gabe Jackson should be the real priorities.

    So Reggie is now the Team doctor? Jerry Jones is loving this.

    The Raiders previously said that if they advanced to the SB, Carr would start. So like, doesnt that mean he has been ready since early Feb? Very conflicting info here.
