The Oakland Raiders went into Sunday’s matchup against the Baltimore Ravens opening to end a two-game skid, but they’d have to do it without some key pieces on both sides of the ball. On defense, Ken Norton, Jr. was without cornerbacks Gareon Conley and David Amerson, forcing Sean Smith into a starting role and Dexter McDonald into an expanded role. On the other side of the ball, the Raiders were without right guard Gabe Jackson and their star quarterback Derek Carr, who practiced on a limited basis Thursday and Friday. The team’s absences were made apparent from the very...Read More

The Oakland Raiders are coming off back-t0-back losses to the Redskins and Broncos in which their offense struggled to get the ball moving. Now offensive coordinator Todd Downing must get his squad going again possibly without their fearless leader Derek Carr. The Raiders star quarterback went down last week against the Broncos with a back injury, and will be out for at least two weeks according to head coach Jack Del Rio. That said, Carr did return to practice on a limited basis on Thursday. If Carr cannot go, then veteran backup E.J. Manuel will take the quarterback duties...Read More
Oakland Raiders starting quarterback Derek Carr left Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos in the third quarter after being hit awkwardly in the back. Carr would not return to the field in the Raiders 16-10 loss to the Broncos, and it appears the Raiders will have to find a way to win without him for a little while. Head coach Jack Del Rio announced Monday that his star quarterback has a “transverse process fracture” and could miss anywhere from two weeks, or maybe more. Coach Del Rio announced QB Derek Carr has a transverse process fracture. "It could be...Read More
The Oakland Raiders went into the Denver hoping to end their offensive drought against the Broncos’ stout defense on Sunday, but were unable to bounce back as the team fell 16-10 on Sunday. Derek Carr and the Raiders offense struggled once again in the game on Sunday, continuing their drought into the second quarter of their matchup against the Broncos. Carr didn’t find any rhythm until he found wide receiver Johnny Holton for a 64-yard touchdown and an over-the-shoulder touchdown to bring the score to 10-to-7. It seemed as if the score would get the offense into gear, but things would end quickly for Todd Downing and the Raiders offense. But then the Raiders offense would take a big blow. A week after taking three sacks, starting quarterback Derek Carr would take another on Sunday while appearing to take a knee to the back. Carr would leave the game and head to the locker room without coming back. Much like last year, head coach Jack Del Rio would gamble on 4th and 11 with a fake punt to punter Marquette King but the Broncos would be all over it and tackle him for a loss. Adding insult to injury, King would be called for a taunting penalty before turning the ball over on downs. Carr would not return and backup EJ Manuel would have to come in with him....Read More
A week after suffering their first loss on Sunday Night Football to the Washington Redskins, head coach Jack Del Rio will lead his team into Denver to take on AFC West rival Broncos. Quarterback Derek Carr had his worst game of the season against the Redskins defense, completing just 19-of-31 passes for just 118 yards and one touchdown. Carr also struggled keeping control of the ball, throwing two interceptions costing the Raiders even more. The Raiders offensive line didn’t help Carr, allowing three sacks against Ryan Kerrigan and the Redskins defense. Things won’t get any easier for the Raiders...Read More
