Source: Derek Carr gets precautionary X-rays after Raiders' win vs. Colts


There was a moment of concern during the Raiders' 31-24 Week 4 win over the Indianapolis Colts, a game the Raiders controlled from the outset.

During the second quarter at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday, quarterback Derek Carr went down and appeared to injure his lower leg. Carr went to the sideline and spoke with the trainer, but all appeared to be OK and he returned for the Raiders' next series.

Following the Raiders win to move 2-2, Carr went received "precautionary" X-rays, a source told NBC Sports California's Scott Bair.

The Raiders now will get on a flight from Indianapolis to London where they will face former Raider Khalil Mack and the Chicago Bears in Week 5.

Carr was solid in the Raiders' win, going  21-for-31 for 189 yards and two touchdowns. For the fourth straight week, Carr hooked up with Tyrell Williams for a touchdown, and rookie running back Josh Jacobs got more involved as the Silver and Black took control from the opening kick. 

With Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky's status for Week 5 unknown after he left Chicago's Week 4 game with a shoulder injury, the Raiders could be in a good position to leave London at 3-2 as long as Carr is healthy.
