Derek Carr leaves Raiders game with back injury
Derek Carr went down in pain and left the Oakland Raiders’ game in Denver after getting hurt in the third quarter.
Carr was sacked on a first down play and went down to the ground. He immediately grabbed his lower back. Replays showed he took a knee to the lower back.
Carr was able to walk off the field, but E.J. Manuel still entered the game for him after that. The Raiders starter entered a medical tent for examination and later was seen walking into the locker room.
Carr was 10 of 18 for 143 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game. His Raiders were trailing Denver 16-7 at the time he left the game. Manuel completed his first two passes after replacing Carr.
