NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Up To The Minute Live on Friday there is a small chance Carr could convince the team he can play.
"At this point it is looking very good chance for him to be back next week," Rapoport said. "[It's been] described to me as a chance to play this week. I know he wants to play very badly."
Carr was listed as limited in practice Thursday and Friday.
It would be a surprise if Carr plays with the back injury this week. However, the quarterback is going to argue his case to see the field after the Raiders lost back-to-back games.
