The Raiders are going with a rookie at quarterback to begin the regular season.
Fox’s Jay Glazer reports the Raiders have switched starters in advance of Sunday’s opener at the Jets, with Derek Carr getting the nod over Matt Schaub.
According to Glazer, players have been informed of the decision.
The call to go with Carr comes after the second-round pick from Fresno State completed 11-of-13 passes for 143 yards and three touchdowns in the preseason finale vs. Seattle. Schaub sat out the game with elbow soreness.
Schaub, whom the Raiders acquired from Houston in the offseason, was just 24-of-47 passing for 218 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in exhibition play. He was sacked three times.
Carr is the fourth different Week One starter for Oakland in as many seasons. Terrelle Pryor was the initial starter in 2013, with Carson Palmer (2012) and Jason Campbell (2011) preceding him.
