Raiders Quarterback Derek Carr Ruled Out for Sunday's Game

That was the answer. That question will easily be answered as soon as this weekend against the Oakland Raiders. Former Raiders right tackle Menelik Watson switched teams this past off-season and joined the Denver Broncos.

And worst of all, quarterback Derek Carr is hurt.

"I thought EJ did a great job coming in in a tough situation", Carr said. The Broncos rushing attack has been very good.

On the ensuing Raiders drive, Carr stayed down after a sack. Could they possibly consider Colin Kaepernick? "Derby Show, '" Siemian said. He will have an MRI on Monday. The Raiders might not need another quarterback.

This will be America's Game of the week at 4:25 p.m. on CBS.

With the Chiefs off to a fast 3-0 start, the victor of this game will keep pace atop the division. Oakland does host the division rival Kansas City Chiefs in Week 7.

Ordinarily, a game this early in the season shouldn't be called a must-win.

The loss falls on the shoulders of everyone involved. Team officials expect Carr to undergo an MRI to better determine the severity of the injury. Thomas caught six passes for 98 yards. It was Derby's first National Football League touchdown.

Broncos players met during the week and voted to stand Sunday, then issued a statement saying they meant no disrespect to the flag or the military by their kneel-downs: "We're all team guys and we felt like that was the best direction to go", Miller said.

Oakland converted only 2 of 12 third-down situations and was 0 for 3 in fourth-down conversion attempts.

Like Lynch, Amari Cooper was once again invisible, making two catches for nine yards.

Standing together: The Raiders and Broncos were the two teams with the most demonstrators during the national anthem.

Left tackle Donald Penn, part of an offensive line that had an uncharacteristic bad game a week ago, realizes things could be even more hard against Von Miller. There were some unusual coaching decisions.

Tennessee and Oakland finished losses without their starting quarterbacks, Marcus Mariota and Derek Carr, and the Atlanta Falcons lost their two leading receivers, but the most serious injury was Cook's. It wasn't enough, as the Raiders couldn't figure out a way to put more points on the board before time ran out. But it was just a unusual decision.

And if you want to win the division - a long-stated goal of HC Jack Del Rio's Squad - it's important to, you know, win your division games.

Carr's status for next Sunday's game against Baltimore remains in question. Back up QB EJ Manuel led a potential game-winning drive, but threw an interception to Denver safety Justin Simmons to ice the game. The Broncos clinched the victory.

For the Raiders, this season started full of promise. "Our run defense has been really stout".

All that excitement made the impending move to Las Vegas, the abandonment of Oakland, a secondary story.

Derek Carr needs to get comfortable and not like a year ago. Haven't looked elite. Haven't looked ready to take the next step.
