HENDERSON, Nev. — New Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is not taking part in organized team activities as he continues to recover from a broken left foot.

There were multiple reports Thursday that the former Patriots quarterback had surgery on his foot after signing with the Raiders.

Coach Josh McDaniels said Thursday that Garoppolo could be held out until July when training camp begins.

McDaniels said Garoppolo is one of a number of players being held out of OTAs.

“We’re always going to err at this time of the year on being smart,” McDaniels said. “We don’t play a football game for 3½ months, so try to rush [players] out there in May, it’s a poor decision.”


Garoppolo sustained the injury late last season with the 49ers, but he said after signing with the Raiders in March that he wasn’t concerned about being available.

“You hate being in that situation,” Garoppolo said. “But once I got past that initial part, especially once we started to make a little bit of a run in the playoffs last year, I was getting ready to ramp up again and be ready. But things didn’t work out, and I’m glad with how things ended up.”
