ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Raiders QB Derek Carr is expected to undergo surgery for a fractured fibula on Tuesday in Los Angeles. Schefter adds that Carr’s recovery timetable will end up being 6-8 weeks, which keeps him out of returning during the playoffs. Oakland has already announced that they plan to move forward with Matt McGloin as their starting quarterback and rookie Connor Cook as their backup for the remainder of the season. It wouldn’t be surprising to see the Raiders place Carr on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported a few weeks ago that the Raiders are expected to focus on signing Carr to a long-term extension during the offseason before turning their attention to a new contract for OLB Khalil Mack.
