It doesn’t seem likely Derek Carr would play a week after injuring his back, but the Raiders haven’t ruled him out. They listed him as questionable on their final injury report Friday.

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said Monday the team expected the quarterback to miss two to six weeks with a transverse process fracture in his back. But Carr was able to take snaps behind E.J. Manuel on Thursday and Friday.

Manuel remains the likely starter, but left tackle Donald Penn said Thursday that Carr’s “very ahead of schedule.” Del Rio was asked Friday if Carr was “ahead of schedule.”

“I think Donald did that for us yesterday,” Del Rio said, via the Raiders’ video of his press conference.

The Raiders also list running back DeAndre Washington (hamstring) and cornerbacks David Amerson (concussion) and Gareon Conley (shin) as questionable.

  1. No need to rush him….even if he is 99% healthy, we need to wait until he is 100%. I care more about January than I do October.

    Go Raiders!!!

  2. When all is said and done, David will end up being the better Carr. As a Pats fan, it makes me proud to know that my team helped to destroy this overhyped franchise and drive them all the way to Vegas. A commitment to excrement.

    Why on earth would you say this, and what does any of this have to do with being a Pats fan?

    I find it hard to believe you could be a real Pat’s fan like me. I have certainly heard animosity from Raiders fans towards the Pat’s, but I have never heard a Pat’s fan have anything to say about the Raiders (not counting game day stuff)

    Hope Derek gets fully healthy- he seems like a quality person in and outside of football- from a Pat’s fan.

    It makes him feel better, you know like when we called names in 3rd grade.

  5. Derek Carr? Brian Hoyer has more passing yards than Derek Carr this year.

    49ers Offense is ranked ahead of the Raiders.

    49ers defense is ranked ahead of the Raiders.

  6. I agree with those who say that Carr shouldn’t return until he’s 100% healthy. He’s the long-term future of the franchise so it’s worth making sure that he’s in prime condition. Also I think that rushing him back last year after injuring his pinky finger could’ve indirectly led to the broken leg a few games later.

    And if/when Carr comes back, I hope it’s as the excellent QB I’ve grown to expect, rather than the deer-in-the-headlights ineffective player he was in the last 2 games.

  7. Something tells me this is going to be a very unfortunate future for the Raiders and a frustrating career for Carr.

    If you can’t stay healthy, you’re really not that great.
