Derek Carr back at practice after suffering back fracture
Derek Carr was back at Raiders practice on Thursday after suffering a transverse process fracture in his back on Sunday.
Carr was injured when he took a knee to his lower back during Oakland’s 16-10 loss to the Broncos. He is expected to be out anywhere from two to six weeks. While there has been no change to that timeline, Carr could be seen throwing passes to Michael Crabtree on Thursday.

E.J. Manuel is expected to start at quarterback for the Raiders during Carr’s absence. Carr joins Cam Newton and Tony Romo on the list of quarterbacks who have sustained a transverse process fracture.
