Derek Carr suffers broken leg | Will miss playoffs3 minute read
During Saturdays game against the Colts, star MVP candidate Raiders quarterback Derek Carr went down in pain early in the fourth quarter after a sack. Early signs showed it’s some form of broken leg, but after the game head coach Jack Del Rio said it’s a broken fibula, and he will miss at least 4-6 weeks. With only one game left in the regular season the Oakland Raiders have clinched a playoff birth for the first time 2002 and now look like they maybe missing their star quarterback.
Raiders backup quarterback situation isn’t great, behind Carr is Matt McGloin, who has little to no gameplay let alone playoff experience. This is very devastating for the Raiders.

A broken fibula usually requires 4-to-6 weeks recovery time.Del Rio says this is a huge injury to Derek Carr and he will be out for awhile.

Why was Derek Carr in the game up 19 points with 11 mins left in the 4th quarter? Or at least why was he throwing?
