Raiders QB Derek Carr questionable for Ravens game in Week 5

Raiders QB Derek Carr questionable for Ravens game in Week 5

After both opened the season with two wins that boosted confidence and expectations, the Ravens (2-2) and Raiders (2-2) come into Sunday's meeting in Oakland on two-game losing streaks with a growing number of doubters.

Carr suffered a transverse process fracture in last week's loss to the Denver Broncos and was expected to miss two to six weeks with the injury. After recording eight interceptions in the first two games, the Ravens have just one in the past two games, by Eric Weddle against the Steelers.

"I don't know if I'd call it a benefit", he said, via the Las Vegas Review-Journal's Michael Gehlken.

EJ Manuel got the start, while Connor Cook will serve as the backup.

"I'll wait to fully commit", Weddle said.

The intrigue began Thursday, when Carr was a surprising participant in practice (albeit limited).

Nadal to face Isner in China
World No. 1 Garbine Muguruza and reigning champion Agnieszka Radwanska are both out, leaving world No. 2 Halep as the favourite. In the last four Nadal will face Dimitrov, who battled his way to a 7-6 (7/5) 4-6 6-2 victory over Roberto Bautista Agut .

The Ravens contend the Raiders offense doesn't change much whether it's Carr or Manuel.

Through his five-year National Football League career, Manuel has thrown for 3,608 yards, 19 touchdowns and 16 interceptions with a 58.5 completion percentage. The two-time Pro Bowl quarterback has seven touchdowns and one interception for a 110.6 passer rating.

"Derek Carr is Derek Carr".

Manuel did beat the Ravens in 2013, although he did so in a remarkable way.

The former first-round pick out of Florida State amassed 6-11 starting record during his first four seasons with the Buffalo Bills. He started the game and carried twice for 17 yards. I can't believe the Raiders would take a chance with their franchise, but if he's feeling well enough to get out there, they'll probably let him try it out with E.J. Manuel ready to come out of the bullpen early.

Joe Flacco is coming off perhaps the worst two-game stretch of his career. Joe Flacco has struggled to get the passing game going and will have another hard time staying upright in the pocket this week.
