OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Oakland Raiders star quarterback Derek Carr is expected to be out for six to eight weeks after a devastating hit on the field Saturday.

Carr is scheduled for surgery on Tuesday to repair his broken leg.

It’s unlikely the 25-year-old will play even if the Raiders make the Superbowl.

Carr broke his fibula during the game against the Colts Saturday. The Raiders still walked away with a 33-25 win.

The injury cast a dark cloud over the best season for the Raiders (12-3) in 14 years.

The Raiders close out the regular season next week when they play in Denver.

Matt McGloin will take over as quarterback.

  1. Suzanne Bitz says:

    Devastating to say the least! Let’s hope the rest of the team can step up and McGloin can find his sync with the team. It ain’t over! Go Raiders!
