Derek Carr not expected to miss time with back spasms

  • Ravens will get EJ Manuel and not standout Raiders quarterback Derek Carr in Sunday's game

The transverse process fracture is the same injury that ended the career of former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. The next few games lined up are against the Baltimore Ravens, Los Angeles Chargers, Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, and the New England Patriots.

EJ Manuel will be the Raiders starter while Carr is out.

DENVER, CO - OCTOBER 1: Quarterback EJ Manuel #3 of the Oakland Raiders runs onto the field after an injury to quarterback Derek Carr #4 of the Oakland Raiders at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on October 1, 2017 in Denver, Colorado.

And then come the now undefeated Kansas City Chiefs for a Thursday night game.

Simply put, the Raiders weren't able to show that they could get it done in their first two games without Carr a year ago. If he is out all five games and the Raiders win three of the five, they will be 5-4 and still in the wild card mix.

Carr did not get up after the hit and he was in immediate pain.

What we do know is that on top of everything else going wrong for the Raiders, now their scuffling offense won't have its leader.

Manuel, 27, was a first-round pick of the Bills in 2013. Instead, it could be another game that sinks the Raiders to the point where they face a major uphill climb in the season's second half.

There's no time too soon for Carr to return, but there's no obvious soft landing spot for him in October, either.

Like so many National Football League teams, the Raiders clearly entered this season with the notion that the backup quarterback wouldn't have to play. "I got that information about 10 minutes ago". The initial reporters were that he was just dealing with back spasms. Of course, the less time he misses, the better. Their backup quarterback is better this year and the defense is a little better.

The good news is the Oakland Raiders may not be completely lost for those 2-6 weeks.
