Raiders quarterback Carr to miss at least two games

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo suffered the same injury on a hit from a defensive player, also only missing one game.

The Raiders return home to host the Baltimore Ravens. EJ Manuel played well against a very tough Denver Broncos defense by moving the ball all the way down the field for a field goal on his second drive.

Worst case timeline scenario: He misses five games and is out through the Raiders' Nov. 12 bye.

DENVER, CO - OCTOBER 1: Quarterback EJ Manuel #3 of the Oakland Raiders runs onto the field after an injury to quarterback Derek Carr #4 of the Oakland Raiders at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on October 1, 2017 in Denver, Colorado. Those five opponents are now a combined 9-9 (Chiefs play Monday night).

Simply put, Raiders quarterback EJ Manuel - the team's new starter - hasn't shown any indication in his five years in the National Football League that he's capable of leading a winning team, and the Raiders' up-and-down start necessitates that the team wins with him at the helm.

Trump accuses San Juan mayor of 'poor leadership'
According to Puerto Rico's governor, more than 50 percent of gas operators are now up and running, as well as most hospitals. She also said she would meet with Trump if he asked her to when he visits the island on Tuesday.

This injury does cause significant pain and spasm, but it is truly a pain tolerance and functional issue.

With Carr out, we have no choice but to severely downgrade the Raiders' skill players. The defense may have to carry Oakland because it won't be almost as explosive on offense without Carr.

Manuel, 27, was a first-round pick of the Bills in 2013. He was off to a strong start to the season when healthy, though, totaling three touchdowns and 163 yards in his first two games combined. This has become a question for any team with an injured quarterback.

There's no time too soon for Carr to return, but there's no obvious soft landing spot for him in October, either. "I got that information about 10 minutes ago". Of course, the less time he misses, the better. So, there is a chance the Raiders' season will not be lost during Carr's absence.
