Oakland quarterback Derek Carr and Tennessee quarterback Marcus Mariota each broke his right leg on Saturday.
Carr will have surgery Sunday for a broken right fibula and is out indefinitely, coach Jack Del Rio announced after the Raiders’ 33-25 win over Indianapolis. Carr was twisted to the ground on a sack with the Raiders leading 33-14 in the fourth quarter.
Last week, the Raiders clinched their first playoff berth since 2002.
Titans coach Mike Mularkey said Mariota will need a minimum of six weeks to recover from a fractured fibula. Mariota left the 38-17 loss to Jacksonville late in the third quarter after being sacked around the ankles.
