Carr missed the team’s Week 5 loss to the Baltimore Ravens with the injury, but it looks like he’ll return sooner than initially thought. Coach Jack Del Rio has said publicly that the expectation is that Carr will be ready to go, overcoming what was thought to be a 2-to-6 week injury after just one game out.
