FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Derek Carr fought through an illness and completed 56 of 63 passes as he worked out for NFL scouts at Fresno State's pro day.

The quarterback woke up Thursday, vomiting and nauseous, but after receiving intravenous fluids and medication, he was able to come away happy with his performance.

At least 23 teams were represented, including general managers for two teams.

Of the seven incomplete passes, there was only one Carr said he wanted back - a mid-range pass between the seams that was just behind the receiver.

Among those in the audience were Vikings general manager Rick Spielman and offensive coordinator Norv Turner; Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie and head coach Dennis Allen; and Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch.
