Oakland rookie Derek Carr will start the season opener against the New York Jets, becoming the first Raiders quarterback to start the first game of his rookie season. Coach Dennis Allen announced Monday that Carr would be the starter for the foreseeable future ahead of Matt Schaub, who struggled in the preseason and has been hampered by a sore elbow. ''We've seen signs of Derek Carr's development from the day he stepped on campus here to where he is at right now,'' Allen said. ''It's not an indictment on Matt Schaub at all,'' Allen said.
Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty has two cracked small bones in his back. Coach Art Briles said during the Big 12 coaches teleconference that the reigning Big 12 offensive player of the year is day to day. Baylor, which didn't practice Monday, is home Saturday night against Northwestern State.
