A little over four hours after suffering a broken right fibula against the Colts, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr posted a message on Twitter.
"Thank you to everyone that has been praying for me! Things happen in life that we don't always understand, BUT I do KNOW this. I serve a God that loves me and that is the ultimate healer! I am not worried one bit. I will bounce back and be on my feet within no time! Thank you for all the love that you Raider Nation showed me in that stadium today. I will be back. This is a team sport! So everything WE want is still out there for us! See y'all soon! God bless and Merry Christmas!"
Carr suffered the injury when he was sacked by Colts linebacker Trent Cole with 10:55 left in the fourth quarter. Carr's right leg got twisted underneath his body and he immediately knew something was wrong. He waved the trainers on to the field and screamed in pain and laid on the ground. He was carried off the field and taken on a cart to the locker room for X-rays.
After the game, head coach Jack Del Rio announced that Carr would undergo surgery on Sunday and that the quarterback is out indefinitely.
Matt McGloin will assume the starting duties with Carr out.
The Raiders currently hold the No. 2 seed in the AFC and wrap up the regular season next Sunday in Denver.
