Derek Carr

  • Ian Rapoport reports that QB Derek Carr (fibula surgery) is considered an “extreme long-shot” to play in the Super Bowl, assuming the Raiders are able to make it that far. However, Rapoport says that Carr will attempt to return.
  • According to Rapoport, Carr’s surgery went well and he’s expected to make a full recovery but a return in six weeks “doesn’t seem realistic.”
