Raiders News: Matt Schaub Didn't Travel To London Due To Family Emergency

Raiders QB Matt Schaub did not travel to London with the rest of the team for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, and now we know why - according to NFL Media, his pregnant wife required emergency surgery.

A two-time Pro Bowler for the Houston Texans, Schaub was traded to Oakland in March in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick. Rookie Derek Carr eventually won the starting job prior to Oakland's season opener against the New York Jets.

Second-year QB Matt McGloin will take over as Derek Carr's backup in Schaub's absence. We wish the Schaub family all the best at what must be a trying time.
