Now that Jonathan Fanene is out of the picture, does that mean a spot has opened up for Andre Carter?
Not necessarily. But it does appear as though Carter -- as he promised earlier this summer -- is just about ready to play this season. Paul Gutierrez from CSN Bay Area reported earlier today that Carter worked out for the Raiders.

Carter declined an interview after his workout, saying only: "I gotta stay low key, brother. If it works out, God willing."
A torn quad ended Carter's 2011 season early. He finished with 10 sacks in 14 games.
