Derek Carr Suffers Awful-Looking Injury Late During Game vs. Colts

Derek Carr injury update: the Raiders' Pro Bowl quarterback went down with a bad-looking leg injury against the Colts.

The Raiders beat the Indianapolis Colts 33-25, but even with a win on the record books, the franchise might have suffered an awful loss during the game.

Derek Carr, the Raiders Pro Bowl quarterback and potential MVP candidate, went down with what looks like a terrible ankle injury on a sack by Indianapolis linebacker Trent Cole.

Former NFL team doctor David J. Chao does not give a sunny outlook on Carr's prospects after seeing the injury.

Carr was carted off the field following the injury. According to CSN Bay Area sports anchor Henry Wofford, he had x-rays done at the stadium.

Carr is having a spectacular year for the Raiders, and was selected to the Pro Bowl. He was also a potential MVP candidate based on his play so far this season. Carr was having a fantastic game before the injury, completing 20-of-30 passes for 228 yards and three touchdowns.

Former Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin filled in with Carr out of the game. He may have to lead the Raiders on their playoff run.

Update: Carr is out indefinitely with a broken fibula.

Just a gut-wrenching injury for a team having such an unbelievable season.
