Since his career began with the Silver & Black in 2014 Womens Mike Nugent Jersey , quarterback Derek Carr has 14 fourth quarter comebacks under his belt. Sunday was not one of those games, as Carr literally threw away any chance of a Raiders victory on a 4th and 5 attempt inside the red zone. After a 1-8 start to the season, the fifth-year veteran has taken his fair share of blame. But Mark Davis isn’t fully convinced the criticism is warranted. “Derek’s taking a lot of s--- right now,” Davis told ESPN on Monday. “He is the franchise quarterback right now. He doesn’t have Amari Cooper. He lost (Martavis) Bryant to a knee injury today. Guys have been getting hurt. Who’s he throwing to? Jordy Nelson and Seth Roberts, which are good guys. But they’re not putting the fear of God in anybody.”“The tight end (Jared Cook) is playing his ass off Youth Seth Roberts Jersey ,” Davis continued. “You look at the quarterback and he’s playing behind a battered offensive line ... so I don’t know what you can put on Derek and I don’t think it’s fair to put all the blame on him.”Davis has a point. In the past four games, Nelson has recorded just five receptions for 36 yards and zero touchdowns. When Brandon LaFell is your team’s best receiver, you’re in trouble.Meanwhile, knee injuries to Kolton Miller and Kelechi Osemele decimated the left side of the offensive line, while rookie Brandon Parker has struggled at right tackle. The result is that Carr is on pace to take 50 sacks in 2018 Womens Gareon Conley Jersey , topping his previous single-season high by 19. The craziest part about that statistic is Carr has long had one of the lowest time until throw in the NFL. Through nine games, Carr has averaged 2.61 seconds before throwing the football, which is currently the 5th lowest in the league. Yet, Carr has still been sacked at a ridiculous rate without any weapons to throw to. There is no doubt that the Raiders franchise quarterback is unrecognizable from his stellar 2016 season, but Davis realizes part of the problem is his surrounding environment. The Raiders have been without tackle Donald Penn since early October due to a groin injury that landed him on injured reserve. Despite the Raiders heading nowhere this season Youth Tahir Whitehead Jersey , head coach Jon Gruden is hopeful Penn can get back on the field before the season comes to an end.“He has been downstairs rehabbing and we are hoping he can come back and help us,” Gruden said, via Scott Bair of NBC Bay Area. “I don’t know how close he is officially, but he is making progress. Hope to have him on the field before the season is over.”Penn is not yet ready to return to the practice field even though he is eligible to do so this week. The Raiders move Penn to right tackle this season to accommodate rookie Kolton Miller at left tackle. He played in the first four games of the year for Oakland at right tackle before being injured against the Cleveland Browns on Sept. 30. He was placed on injured reserve three days later.Having been on injured reserve for eight weeks, Penn will be eligible to return any time between now and the end of the season. Once the Raiders designate him to return from IR Youth Kelechi Osemele Jersey , he can practice for up to three weeks before needing to be added back to the 53-man roster. The Raiders have one return designation remaining after designating defensive tackle Justin Ellis from injured reserve.If Penn is set to return, running back Marshawn Lynch will no longer be eligible to play again this season.
