Marcus Mariota is expected to be sidelined for at least a few weeks after he aggravated a quad injury on Monday night, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
The Raiders’ backup quarterback re-injured himself on a 31-yard first-quarter run, his only play of the game. The Raiders have not yet put Mariota on the injured reserve list, a potential sign they are hopeful he will be back within the next two weeks. Going onto IR automatically sidelines a player for at least three games.
Nate Peterman will back up Derek Carr in the interim.
