Derek Carr injured but Raiders not lost

Ravens will get EJ Manuel and not standout Raiders quarterback Derek Carr in Sunday's game

You could tell Sunday in Denver that there was something more serious with Derek Carr than back spasms.

Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr left Sunday's loss to the Denver Broncos with a back injury, and head coach Jack Del Rio revealed Monday that he had suffered a transverse process fracture.

This is a challenging time for the Raiders, who have lost two straight games after starting 2-0 and leading the National Football League in scoring.

Manuel started just three games the past two seasons for the Bills and will be seeking his first win as a starter on Sunday against Baltimore since beating Miami 29-10 on September 14, 2014.

The Raiders franchise quarterback suffered a season-ending leg injury in Week 16 last season and signed a five-year, $125 million extension with the club this offseason.

Manuel, 27, completed 11 of 17 passes for 106 yards and an interception on Sunday.

But, just one quarter of the way into this special season, the Raiders, and their quarterback, are decidedly not fine.

In theory, Carr could return after that contest with the Bolts.

As such, Manuel will be under center in a really important Week 5 game against Baltimore this upcoming Sunday at the Coliseum.

Will the Raiders still be.500 at that point?

The Raiders hope they are better equipped to handle the absence this year with E.J. Manuel at quarterback.

A little more than a week after that game, the Raiders travel to first-place Buffalo. Games against New England, Denver, Kansas City, Dallas, and the Eagles loom in the final seven weeks, and despite the state of the AFC, it's likely to take 10 wins (or, in other words, no more than six losses) to make the postseason this year. QB expected to be out for at least 2 weeks. The Ravens, also 2-2, don't seem to be a very good team.
