Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr left Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals with an injury and was replaced by Matt McGloin.
Carr appeared to injure his hand in the second quarter and was taken to the locker room. Head coach Jack Del Rio told reporters after the game that X-rays on Carr’s hand were negative and that he will undergo further tests.
Carr, a second-round pick in 2014, is entering his second season as the Raiders’ starter. He completed 58.1% of his passes last season, while throwing 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
McGloin, 25, is in his third season in the NFL. He went undrafted in 2013 and started six games for Oakland that year. He completed 55.9% of his passes while going 1–5 as a starter.
McGloin’s only game action in 2014 came in a blowout loss to the Miami Dolphins, when he threw for 129 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.
