After Sunday's 27-3 loss to the Seahawks in London, Carr told Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the injury to his left non-throwing arm is "just a little bruise. I'll be alright." With a little more than nine minutes left in the fourth quarter, Carr attempted to scramble on third-and-11, was hit by two Seahawks and landed in an awkward manner on his left arm. After getting up with a grimace and going to the locker for an examination, he returned to the sideline but didn't reenter because the Raiders didn't run another offensive snap. Carr is expected to undergo further evaluation Monday to determine the extent of the injury, but considering his comments and the team's upcoming bye week, he's a good bet to be ready for Oakland's next contest Oct. 28 versus the Colts.
Carr completed 23 of 31 passes for 142 yards, adding four rushes for 31 yards in a 27-3 loss to Seattle on Sunday. He also suffered an injury to his non-throwing shoulder in the game, though the team doesn't feel it's a huge concern. Carr's pattern of inconsistent play persists, as his two lost fumbles against Seattle provide him with seven turnovers over the past four weeks, with 10 total giveaways on the year. A large contributor to Carr's 18.5 point-per-game (standard scoring) output over the past four games is his passing yardage, as he came into Week 6 averaging 328.2 yards per game through the air. Oakland stumbles into the bye week licking its wounds after a 1-5 start, but Carr has top-10 upside returning in Week 8 against a Colts secondary that ranks 28th in the NFL with 283 passing yards allowed per game.
Carr left Sunday's game against the Seahawks during the fourth quarter due to a left shoulder injury, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Carr attempted to convince coach Jon Gruden to let him back in the game after meeting with medical personnel, but backup AJ McCarron could be asked to finish this contest. The Raiders' aerial attack has been affected by multiple injuries Sunday, as Amari Cooper and Seth Roberts also exited with concussions.
Carr completed 24 of 33 passes for 268 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 26-10 loss to the Chargers. Carr's goal-line interception late in the third quarter essentially sealed the game, but he did at least bounce back with a one-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson to pad his stat line in garbage time. It didn't help that the Chargers held a comfortable advantage in time of possession, and Amari Cooper surprisingly drew just a single target. A Week 6 home game against Seattle will be the next challenge for Carr in a disappointing, inconsistent 2018 campaign.
Carr completed 35 of 58 pass attempts for 437 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions during Sunday's 45-42 overtime win over the Browns. Carr thrived in this high-scoring affair, posting his highest totals in terms of yardage, completions and attempts since Week 8 of the 2016 season. He connected with eight different receivers on the day, throwing touchdown passes to top targets Amari Cooper, Jared Cook and Jordy Nelson. Carr has an underwhelming 6:7 TD:INT through four weeks, but he's averaging a whopping 343.3 passing yards per game this season and more importantly helped his team to its first win. He'll look to keep it up next Sunday against a Chargers team that just allowed 27 points to a 49ers unit led by C.J. Beathard.
