San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer said that the Oakland Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers could play their Week 6 game in San Diego on Sunday if Oakland Coliseum is unavailable due to the wildfires in the Bay Area, according to Tom Krasovic of The San Diego Union Tribune.
If the Raiders get Carr back, that's a plus.
Carr is expected to start against the Los Angeles Chargers this weekend, having missed one game with a transverse process fracture in his back.
The Chargers have been close all year and though they defeated a team ravaged by injuries last Sunday, the road win in New York could give the team the confidence it was lacking in the first four games of the year. "To sit here and see certain looks and see thing going on with all those kind of things. we just have to be more efficient".
"It's one of them things", Carr said.
That's right, for the first time since last November, the Chargers put a mark in the win column, ending a nine-game losing streak.
Oakland went out to practice defiantly to "Smoke on the Water" by Deep Purple, but decided to skip individual position drills, cutting off nearly 30 minutes out of the two-hour practice.
"When you watch it from the sidelines, it is really hard", Carr said.
Wildfire destroyed a Santa Rosa, Calif. neighborhood; the smoke and air quality impacted Oakland Raiders practice on Wednesday.
The Raiders took the practice field in smoky conditions with even some ash falling from the sky. He feels confident that "the ball will find [him]".
Thus far this season, much like the Raiders' entire offense, Cooper has struggled mightily. Rivers' aim hasn't always been true, but Keenan Allen is fourth in the league with 401 receiving yards and his 235 on third down is an NFL high.
Of course, he entered last weekend with an NFL-leading seven drops, per Pro Football Focus, so this has not exactly been a season to joke about, let alone with the Raiders quarterbacks forgetting about him.
