Derek Carr seems kind of upset with TMZ after undergoing surgery

29 December 2016

When Raiders quarterback Derek Carr suffered a broken leg in Saturday's 33-25 win over the Colts, Oakland's hopes for a long playoff run were carted off the field with him.

Backup Matt McGloin will start Sunday's road regular season finale against the Denver Broncos. So it's understandable that the organization doesn't want this opportunity to pass them by without one of their best players.

Meanwhile, Carr has already done the heavy lifting to this point, getting the Raiders to 12 wins. It will be incumbent upon the offensive line and backs to do more, the special teams to do more.

In September, following the Raiders' win over the Saints, Carr was asked about performing in big moments and referred to Bryant. "Thank you for all of your prayers as I heal up!"

"We felt like you had to keep the pedal down on that opponent, that quarterback in that game". With a bye, they get an extra week to prepare for their upcoming divisional match-up. We knew they were going to give everything they had to close the game any way they could.

But Carr has kept his social media messages positive - from the day he was injured to the day he had surgery.

"I think the question would be a little different if it was like, "Coach, don't you think you got a little conservative there?"

"I'll just leave it at that".
