Raiders QB Matt Schaub Inactive Sunday Against New England

In today's Raiders news update, Oakland Raiders backup quarterback Matt Schaub will not be available for the team's Week 3 matchup in the Northeast against the New England Patriots.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle's Vic Tafur, an unspecified emergency came up that required Schaub to leave the team:

With Schaub out, former starting quarterback Matt McGloin will take over the backup duties for Dennis Allen's club as they attempt to turn their 2014 season around with a huge win against a perennial NFL power.

Regardless of who is the backup, the Raiders remain committed to the growth process of second-round draft pick Derek Carr, as he makes his second start in the Eastern time zone this season.
