Carr goes down, and so do Raiders in National Football League power rankings roundup

Antonio JonesDec 29, 2016

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is out of surgery and is apparently doing well, according to a Facebook post from his mother Sheryl Carr.

Carr, who has been in the NFL MVP discussion, broke his fibula in last week's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

While the Raiders have rallied behind Matt McGloin speaking with the media, the simple truth is that McGloin was a backup for a reason. So it's understandable that the organization doesn't want this opportunity to pass them by without one of their best players.

What seems ideal is this; the Raiders should aim to capitalize on a potential first round bye by defeating the Denver Broncos next week.

In September, following the Raiders' win over the Saints, Carr was asked about performing in big moments and referred to Bryant.

"We felt we had to keep the pedal down on that opponent and that quarterback (Andrew Luck) in that game", Del Rio said, via the San Jose Mercury News.

Carr underwent surgery on Tuesday, and the Super Bowl will be played in just under six weeks on February 5.

"Nobody in this room knew I was going to play this game".

"I think the question would be a little different if it was like, "Coach, don't you think you got a little conservative there?"
