Raiders QB Derek Carr took a shot to the helmet on a QB sneak on the 1st play of the 4th quarter in Sunday's game against the Bears. Carr was able to get off the field under his own power but headed straight to the medical tent. Stay tuned for updates.
Update: Carr re-entered after missing a few plays.
Raiders HC Jon Gruden is resigning, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The move comes 3 days after the Wall Street Journal reported 10-year-old emails in which Gruden used racially offensive language in talking about DeMaurice Smith. Earlier today, the New York Times reported on other emails in which Gruden used racist and homophobic language. We'll see about the succession plan for the Raiders and how the players handle the transition, though we're not altering our fantasy outlook for any of the players.
Update: The Raiders have made assistant HC and special-teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia to interim HC. Bisaccia coached in Tampa for Gruden's entire stint there (plus another 2 years after Gruden left), then with the Chargers and Cowboys before re-joining Gruden with the 2018 Raiders.
Raiders QB Derek Carr (ankle) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. Carr has turned in QB9 and QB8 weekly finishes so far this season and is a viable fantasy start vs. the Dolphins on Sunday.
Raiders QB Derek Carr (ankle) put in a full practice on Wednesday. HC Jon Gruden confirmed afterward that Carr is "ready to go" for this weekend's game vs. the Dolphins. Carr, who sits 5th among QBs in fantasy points so far, is a viable QB1 play in Week 3.
Raiders HC Jon Gruden on Monday deemed QB Derek Carr questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins because of an ankle sprain, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Carr played every offensive snap in the Week 2 win at Pittsburgh, so it's not clear just when the injury occurred. With backup Marcus Mariota already on IR for a quad injury, the Raiders would need to turn to Nathan Peterman if Carr can't go. If that happens, try to use the Miami defense.
Update: Ian Rapoport reports that Gruden said he thinks Carr will be able to play this week, after they saw results of the MRI on Carr's ankle.
Raiders QB Derek Carr (groin) isn't listed on the final Week 16 injury report after putting in full practices on Wednesday and Thursday. He's set to start Saturday night's game vs. the Dolphins. Between the injury and the matchup, he's just a low-end QB2.
