Del Rio: Derek Carr ‘ready to play’ Sunday

Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was held out of last week’s game as he dealt with a transverse process fracture in his back suffered Oct 1st against Denver, but head coach Jack Del Rio says he’s fully ready to play Sunday against Los Angeles.

“He’ll be ready to play,” Del Rio said Friday, per ESPN. “I think it was smart to give him the week (off), which we did. Even though he was pushing for last week. He’s cleared to go and got the green light. Doctors and trainers all gave him the go.

“He had a full week of practice for the most part, so we’re ready to go.”
