Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is out.

Carr is still due for an MRI on Monday, but the Raiders appear confident that no serious issues will turn up. Carr is expected to miss two to six weeks to fully recover.

The typical recovery time for an injury like Carr's is between two and six weeks.

Watch Florida's Freddie Swain make one-handed catch off deflection against Vanderbilt
You had to like Webb's chances considering in three career games against the Gators, Webb had rushed for 311 yards on 62 carries. If that looks familiar, it's a lot like the game-winning throw he connected with Cleveland with to vanquish Tennessee.

The 26-year-old Carr remained on the turf for several minutes as team trainers and medical personnel came on to the field to assist him. All three games will be in Oakland, and it will be E.J. Manuel under center for however long Carr is out.

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. He broke his leg in the second-to-last game of the regular season in 2016 with the Raiders holding a 12-3 record. There is no planet where Manuel is considered an upgrade to Carr. But it's hard to imagine that Del Rio would embrace the idea, especially if he believes that Carr's injury status is temporary.

DENVER, CO - OCTOBER 1: Quarterback EJ Manuel #3 of the Oakland Raiders runs onto the field after an injury to quarterback Derek Carr #4 of the Oakland Raiders at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on October 1, 2017 in Denver, Colorado. Certainly the way EJ played (Sunday) was uplifting. (Specifically, Colin Kaepernick, but frankly there would have been a few that would have been an improvement). Their backup quarterback is better this year and the defense is a little better. This has become a question for any team with an injured quarterback.

Rafa Benitez still loved at Liverpool as Newcastle plot Anfield shock
The visitors are understandably favourites to win and they are available at their best odds of 8/11. I am happy here. "I have fond memories of Rafa Benitez , a great manager".

And now the Raiders are likely to pay for overlooking the importance of the position.

Carr was hit by defensive end Shelby Harris and was going down when defensive end Adam Gotsis flew in and wrapped a padded arm between his helmet and shoulder pads. Oakland would lose consecutively past year, but that came in Week 17 to the Broncos and in the AFC Wild Card game on the road to the Houston Texans.

The Raiders return home to host the Baltimore Ravens. The season toughens in late November when Carr returns. And if there's one place you want to have a broken bone, it's in Buffalo in the late fall. He looked decent at times as Carr's replacement in Denver on Sunday. Their offense has struggled in consecutive losses, scoring 10 points in each game. The Ravens, also 2-2, don't seem to be a very good team.
