Looks as if Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is well on his way to recovery from a season-ending broken leg.
Just seven weeks after the injury to his right fibula, Carr was spotted this week working out at a Bay Area gym.
A Raiders fan posted a picture on Twitter. It appeared that the former Fresno State star was wearing a bandage over his right leg while doing a leg-press workout.
Carr underwent surgery Dec. 27 after getting hurt three days earlier in a game against the Indianapolis Colts.
But the Monday post was just the latest positive news shared via social media. Carr also was shown at a car dealership in Dublin, wearing his Fresno State shorts with no sign of a cast or crutches.
In another share, this one via personal trainer Eric Mahanke, Carr is seen maintaining his sense of humor despite the sometimes grueling rehab. While the trainer has his back turned, Carr continually switched to arm workouts instead.
“This is how we crush legs,” Mahanke said in the video. “You feel that in your legs, dude?”
“Yeah, yeah,” Carr said before adopting his own agenda.
“No Derek, not arms, dude. Gosh, always doing arms!”
Before his injury in Week 16, Carr was the guiding force behind the Raiders, going 12-4 and earning their first playoff berth since 2002. He tied for third in balloting for the NFL’s Most Valuable Player award and won the Castrol Edge Clutch Performer of the Year honor.
