Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr left Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos. He suffered a back injury prior to his exit.

He came down awkwardly during a third-quarter sack by the Broncos. After a video replay, it appeared that he was kicked in the back by Broncos defensive end Shelby Harris.

Once he was brought to the sideline, he was taken into the Raiders medical tent, where he stayed for several minutes. But as he left the medical tent, he left on his own power, which is definitely an encouraging sign.

Tony Romo, the CBS Sports broadcaster, who was calling the game with Jim Nantz, suggests that Carr suffered a stringer. E.J. Manuel replaced Carr in the game.

Before leaving the game, he went 10 of 18 for 143 yards and a touchdown. On the season, through the first four-games, he has gone 74 of 109 for 753 yards and seven touchdowns.

It’ll be interesting to see if there is any severity to his injury or if it’s a minor one like Romo suggests.

Last season, Carr suffered a season-ending injury on Christmas Eve and that derailed the Raiders potentially deep postseason run.
