    Del RIo: Carr 'a positive young man, upbeat despite injury, upcoming surgery

    ALAMEDA – Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is in relatively good spirits even after suffering a broken fibula late in Saturday's victory over the Colts.

    It's extremely likely Carr is done for what's left of this season, but Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said on Monday the third-year pro remains optimistic.

    "He's a very positive young man," Del Rio said. "He's all about the team, and being there for the team. He is wishing us the best, and will do what he can to be there vocally for us. He was outstanding."

    Del Rio didn't say when Carr's surgery is scheduled, though an NFL Network report stated that he'll have surgery on Tuesday in Los Angeles. A recovery timetable will be more firmly established after examining the extent of ligament damage at the injury site.

    Del Rio was in a giving mood in his Monday press conference, and didn't provide information on Carr's status.

    "I'm not going to shed any more light on it," Del Rio said. "At some point, there may be more details to follow but I don't have any more for you today."
