Carr suffered a lower back injury late in the Raiders’ loss to Denver in Week 4. He was initially expected to miss 2-6 weeks, but he may end up missing just one game. He did not play in the team’s Week 5 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
Second-string QB E.J. Manuel would play if Carr were unable to start in Week 6.
