Derek Carr and the Oakland Raiders are not having the fairy tale ending to their season they were hoping for. Sure, they have a shot at locking up the No. 1 seed in the AFC, but will have to do it without Carr and will be playing in the postseason without him.
We have the details on his injury and he’s got a broken fibula, which is likely to keep him out 6-8 weeks. Pretty much just long enough to not let him play in the Super Bowl should the Raiders make it that far. The worst part about the whole ordeal though is that Carr knew immediately his season was over when he took the hit to it and here’s his mic’d up reaction:
That’s just absolutely awful for something like this to happen to such a good quarterback and good person. He was in the middle of his best year yet as he was about to throw for over 4,000 yards for the first time and had 28 touchdowns against only six interceptions on the year. He also had seven fourth quarter comebacks on the season.
