Derek Carr reportedly expected to play through arm injury

Derek Carr

Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr took one of the worst beatings of his career in his team’s 27-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, and he left the game with an arm injury after taking his sixth sack of the day. Fortunately, the bye week should give him enough time to heal.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Carr is not expected to miss a start.

Carr was favoring his left arm as he left the field on Sunday, but he was later shown trying to talk himself back into the game after being examined by medical staff. With the Raiders trailing big at the time and virtually no chance of coming back, there was no reason to risk Carr going back in.

The bye week could not have come at a better time for Oakland, as Carr wasn’t the only key offensive player injured on Sunday.
