"I've got to clarify a medical report", Del Rio said Monday.
What's a transverse process fracture?
Any spine fracture sounds bad, but there is good news here. The Raiders knew that Murray wasn't the right man to continue as the lead tailback for the team which is why Lynch was brought back from retirement. That killer instinct to finish drives was there against Los Angeles and Dallas - it has completely disappeared the last two weeks. "I could have 50 yards as long as we win". What should really concern Denver is, when the game was squarely on his shoulders and the team down just four points as the fourth quarter began, he mustered all of jack and shit.
BRONCOS BACKS: The Broncos have a crowded backfield now that Devontae Booker is back from a broken wrist that sidelined him all of July, August and September.
Losing Carr is a significant blow for the Raiders, as he was a candidate to win the NFL's Most Valuable Player award last season. Oakland lost the regular-season finale with Matt McGloin starting at quarterback to miss out on winning the division and then was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs with Connor Cook starting.
The Oakland Raiders likely will have revenge on their minds when they visit the Denver Broncos on Sunday for the latest installment in the bitter rivalry.
Two plays later, Manuel had Amari Cooper open briefly inside the 10-yard line before Denver safety Justin Simmons came over from center field to pick the ball off and seal the game. Taylor got his first game uniform of the season Sunday and came up with the biggest special teams play, tackling Oakland punter Marquette King for a 3-yard loss when the fake attempt needed 11 yards for a first down. In 25 offensive possessions in 2014 and '15 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, the Raiders punted 19 times, scored three touchdowns, turned it over twice and missed a field goal.
"I think it was just a matter of getting in a rhythm", he said. "That was a pretty good day, so I'm happy for him".
DT has made plays in the past and will make them again. "I like the certainty he played with and I liked his accuracy".
Denver was the first to put points on the board, scoring on a Trevor Siemian 22-yard touchdown pass to tight end A.J. But without Carr under center, the Raiders are obviously a much different team.
ABOUT THE RAIDERS (2-1): Mack leads the National Football League with 28 sacks since the beginning of the 2015 campaign (0.5 better than Miller), including one in each of his last two games. The offense had been bogged down by Denver since a 99-yard touchdown drive in the second quarter, tallying just one total yard on the subsequent three drives. Riley Dixon performed well and was able to pin the Raiders behind the 10-yard line twice. I don't like them in this game.
The Raiders' will be having a big hole in their receiver department as leading WR Michael Crabtree won't be playing on Sunday against the Broncos.
