ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) Oakland quarterback Derek Carr is expected to return to the Raiders’ lineup for Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers, two weeks after suffering a broken bone in his back.

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio confirmed Carr’s return on Monday, echoing comments he made following the Raiders’ 30-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens a day earlier.

“I pretty much said that yesterday,” Del Rio said. “I anticipate he’ll be ready to go. He was pushing pretty hard last week.”
