Raiders fans are on the edge of their seats as Derek Carr exited the Raiders-Broncos game. Carr was favoring his back as he headed back to the locker room.

The Raiders medical staff treated Carr in the pop-up tent on the field before Carr headed to the locker room. Carr was forced to miss the end of last season and the playoffs with a torn ACL. CBS’ Tracy Wolfson reported Carr did sustain a back injury, but the severity is unknown at this time.

On the same play, Carr suffered a knee to his back along with a hit to the head. Yahoo Sports reports his return is questionable.

E.J. Manuel took over at quarterback for the Raiders.
