Mens Doug Baldwin Jersey Derek Carr’s surgically repaired right fibula, broken in a Week 16 Christmas Eve sack that derailed the Oakland Raiders’ postseason plans, is healed enough that Carr is a full participant in the team’s offseason training program.
This progress in the healing process comes just in time for the team’s franchise quarterback to ramp up talks with Oakland for a contract extension.
His importance was never more evident than in the Big 12 tournament, when he was suspended by coach Bill Self following a series of off-the-court issues. The top-seeded Jayhawks stumbled in a quarterfinal loss to TCU, ending their run at the conference tournament before it really began.
He returned for the NCAA tournament and played well in wins over UC Davis, Michigan State and Purdue, but was hamstrung by foul trouble and managed just 10 points in a season-ending loss to the Ducks.
Jackson’s suspension came following an incident outside a Lawrence bar in December, when a member of the Kansas women’s basketball team got into an altercation with Jackson’s teammate, Lagerald Vick.
Jackson, 20, followed the woman to the parking lot and the woman said he kicked her car and caused hundreds of dollars in damage. He pleaded not guilty last week in Douglas County District Court to one misdemeanor count of criminal damage to property and a trial is scheduled for May 24.
