Raiders Camp Day 20 Play of the Day: Martavis Bryant took off down the left sideline in 7-on-7 drills with Gareon Conley on his hip. Derek Carr launched a deep ball and Bryant momentarily appeared to have a step, until Conley launched himself up, touching Brant on the helmet, to knock the ball away. And maybe, just maybe, coach Jon Gruden held his breath…until both players, who have lengthy injury histories, got up, shook themselves off, and ran back to their respective huddles. “You just have to hope for the best,” said coach Jon Gruden. “Our guys did a great job today and throughout camp maintaining a really good edict – taking care of each other, trying to avoid piles of bodies being on the ground…now that I think of it, I’m glad both of them got up.”

Raiders camp Day 19 Quote of the Day II comes from QB Derek Carr, on rookie RB Chris Warren getting some in-game inspiration during Friday's exhibition opener against Detroit: "Marshawn's mom called down to the sideline and gave him a pep talk and he played real well for us…he started to run physical as a rookie. You guys can ask Marshawn about that, if that's true or not. Make sure you guys bug him with that one. Next time you talk to him, make sure you ask him. She called him during the game. Love you, Mama Lynch."

Raiders camp Day 19 Quote of the Day comes from quarterback Derek Carr, on his right guard: “Gabe Jackson is, for sure, probably the most underrated person in the NFL. Because of the other three, and their accolades, right? And now you have another first-round pick on the line, too, and poor Gabe is just left in the wind. But yes, we know how special he is, we know how important he is and I will say this, every time I see his ‘Madden’ rating I get mad. Because it doesn’t do him justice.” The ‘other three’ Carr was referring to are Pro Bowl offensive linemen Donald Penn, Kelechi Osemele and Rodney Hudson, while Kolton Miller is the first-rounder.

Connor Cook is not being given every opportunity to win the Raiders backup quarterback job, because based on his performance Friday night, he is earning it. Cook looked as comfortable as he has ever looked since Oakland used a fourth-round draft pick on him in 2016. Yes, better than he did in starting the Raiders' playoff game at Houston as a rookie. The playoff-tested Cook replaced starter Derek Carr after one series and Cook completed 11 of 19 passes for 141 yards and a 7-yard TD pass to Ryan Switzer. Yeah, this was the guy the Cowboys purportedly wanted to draft before the Raiders took him. "He did some good things," Raiders coach Jon Gruden said of Cook. "There’s still a couple things decision-wise I think he’s got to correct, but he moved the football, he put points on the board, and I liked his two-minute drill at the end of the half."
