  • Oakland Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub (8) fumbles as he is hit by Green Bay Packers' Nick Perry during the first half of an NFL preseason football game Friday, Aug. 22, 2014, in Green Bay, Wis. The Packers recovered the fumble.
Oakland Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub missed his second straight day of practice with a sore throwing elbow, a problem that has lingered throughout the preseason.

Rookie Derek Carr took first-team snaps for a second straight day Monday with Schaub serving as a spectator.

Schaub's status for Thursday night's exhibition finale against Seattle remains up in the air but he and coach Dennis Allen say they are confident he will be healthy enough to start the season opener Sept. 7 against the New York Jets.

Schaub said the elbow has been "bothersome" but hasn't affected his throwing in the preseason. He is getting rest and rehab this week.
