Derek Carr OUT 2-6 Weeks with Back Fracture. #RaiderNation— Mitchell Renz (@MitchellRenz365) October 2, 2017
As you can see in this hit, when Carr was sacked not only did Gotsis fall on Carr, he also kneed him in the back. Shortly after the sack, he was ruled questionable.
Filling in for Carr is first-year Raider E.J. Manuel. Manuel stat line wasn't great but the Broncos defense at home is legit. He finished with 106 passing yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. The Raiders really struggled without Carr last season and will miss at least two weeks now.Back to the Oakland Raiders Newsfeed
