The Oakland Raiders injuries just keep piling up. According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, Derek Carr is undergoing an MRI on his injured throwing hand, and is expected to miss Week 2.

Per Mort, the Raiders have “reached out” to free agent Christian Ponder, suggesting they fear a multi-week absence for Carr. The sophomore starter injured himself trying to stiff arm Bengals CB Pacman Jones on Sunday.
Per Rotoworld, Raiders CB D.J. Hayden’s ankle was “heavily iced” and wrapped as he limped around the team facility on Monday. Hayden’s injury is in addition to SS Charles Woodson (shoulder) and FS Nate Allen’s (ACL).
