Oakland Raiders: Derek Carr Suffered Concussion vs. Lions
- Updated: August 16, 2014
Oakland Raiders’ rookie quarterback Derek Carr put on an impressive performance in the team’s second preseason game against the Lions, but his night came to an abrupt end in the fourth quarter when he suffered a concussion.
Coach Dennis Allen told reporters the injury happened after Carr when 265-pound defensive lineman Larry Webster fell on top of him, according to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Up to that point, Carr had outplayed Raiders starter Matt Schaub. The rookie QB completed 9 of 16 passes for 109 yards and a touchdown, and led the Raiders to three scoring drives. It was pretty evident that Carr already has a better repoire with the receiving corps than Schaub does, but any chance at him overtaking Schaub for the starting position took a major blow with this injury.
