Derek Carr Was Mic’d Up When He Broke His Leg (Video)


It was pretty tough to watch Derek Carr go down with a broken fibula late in Saturday’s week 16 match-up against the Indianapolis Colts.  The 25-year-old quarterback was having such a great season, leading the Raiders to their first playoff appearance in 14 years. And now, it’s over—unless his Raiders can reach the Super Bowl without him.

So yeah, that injury was a tough one to watch.  But it did remind us of just how calm, cool, and collected the young Oakland quarterback can be, even during the toughest of times.

Carr was mic’d up for Saturday’s game, and that footage has since been released.  It’s pretty remarkable how relaxed he was during this entire ordeal.  Check it out:
