Derek Carr leaves game with apparent arm injury
The Oakland Raiders continue to struggle, and now their quarterback is struggling with injury.
Derek Carr left Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks after taking his sixth sack of the game, and appeared to be favoring his left arm or shoulder as he left the field.
Derek Carr is in some pain. He’s holding is left shoulder/arm and is with trainers on the sideline and now going to the blue tent.

If there’s any good news, it’s that Carr looked like he was trying to talk himself back into the game after being evaluated. The Raiders, trailing 27-3, saw no point in further risking Carr’s health and brought A.J. McCarron in to replace him.
Derek Carr looked to be making case to stay in game — good sign for future. Bit with Raiders trailing 27-3 in fourth quarter, arguably no point. A.J. McCarron just took practice snaps behind center Rodney Hudson and has helmet on. Looks like McCarron will finish game.

Carr’s injury wasn’t the only one suffered by a key Raider on Sunday in what was a brutal day for them.
