Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr will have an X-rays on his injured back. He suffered the injury against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

The team also expects that Carr will have an MRI later this week. He did not return to the game after being injured.

E.J. Manuel finished out the game. Yet, Carr, who apparently suffered a knee to the back from Broncos defensive end Shelby Harris, admitted that he was in a lot of pain after the game.

While Carr will undergo several tests, Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio is downplaying the injury. Tony Romo, the CBS Sports broadcaster, suggested on-air that it was a stinger.

Carr was sacked by Harris when the injury happened. NFL Network‘s Mike Silver is already suggesting that Carr will play next week against the Baltimore Ravens.

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.
