Raiders Rookie QB Derek Carr To Start Vs. Seahawks
Oakland Raiders fans will get a close look at their past and future at quarterback in Thursday night's exhibition finale against the Seattle Seahawks. Rookie Derek Carr will start and get ample playing time in place of injured Matt Schaub for the Raiders, while last season's opening game starter in Oakland, Terrelle Pryor, should get significant playing time as he fights for a roster spot with the Seahawks. After a promising start to last season, Pryor's struggles eventually led him to lose his starting job in Oakland and then get traded to Seattle for a seventh-round pick in May's draft.
