Raiders Announce Derek Carr Is Out 2-6 Weeks With Broken Back

Raiders Announce Derek Carr Is Out 2-6 Weeks With Broken Back”

A 38-yard Giorgio Tavecchio field goal cut Denver's lead to 16-10 with five minutes, 18 seconds remaining. "That has to stop". We're going to spend more time in the red zone. Trevor Siemian threw for 179 yards and one touchdown. Derby. Then with a 1:09 left to play in the quarter, Broncos' kicker Brandon McManus nailed a 28-yard field goal to give the Broncos a 10-0 lead.

"Of course, we don't want anything to happen to Derek", Manuel said, "but I got some snaps". He had a really rough game against the Washington Redskins, though, accounting for just one catch and seven total yards. I thought the first week we did a good job of that. That part we're going to fix.

The Raiders defense remains atrocious, and they'll need to go 2-3 at a minimum without Carr to have a shot at the playoffs. Coach Jack Del Rio said Carr suffered from back spasms. The Broncos are positioned well right now.

The Raiders' offense has been down the past two games, averaging just 10 points. Derek Carr is completing 70.3 percent of his passes for 610 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions. Last season, the Broncos were minus-2 in turnovers in a 30-20 loss to the Raiders in November and plus-2 in the win over the Raiders in the season finale.

The Raiders nearly grabbed momentum when Khalil Mack strip-sacked Trevor Siemian and Mario Edwards Jr. recovered the fumble.

The Broncos' offense that racked up 140 yards in the first quarter notched only 65 in the second.

"That was a pretty good catch", Siemian said of the 29-yard TD catch that was much more than pretty good. Derby ran a sideline-and-go that froze his defender and left him alone down the right sideline. The 12th overall pick in this year's draft threw four touchdowns passes and ran for another in his third National Football League start.

"I'm glad he knows", Carr said. "I didn't see much that would indicate the he would be injured".

Manuel and the Raiders couldn't capitalize either, and Von Miller burst through the Oakland offensive line to take down the backup on third-and-long to flip possession. He is their unquestioned leader, and any time missed would be detrimental to a team with lofty expectations now sporting a.500 record.

The Oakland Raiders likely will have revenge on their minds when they visit the Denver Broncos on Sunday for the latest installment in the bitter rivalry. Manuel found early success against the Broncos' secondary, but this success was short-lived.

He went 11-17 for 106 yards with a costly interception when targeting Amari Cooper to end the game. He hit his only field goal attempt and his only point after attempt.

Beating the Raiders while in the Mile High City was a must win. "Who's next? That's what I say".

The good news is that this is fixable.
