Raiders tab rookie Derek Carr as starting QB (The Associated Press) ( today ) Courtesy of
Oakland rookie Derek Carr will start the season opener against the New York Jets, becoming the first Raiders quarterback to start the first game of his rookie season. Coach Dennis Allen announced Monday that Carr would be the starter for the foreseeable future ahead of Matt Schaub, who struggled in the preseason and has been hampered by a sore elbow. ''We've seen signs of Derek Carr's development from the day he stepped on campus here to where he is at right now,'' Allen said. ''It's not an indictment on Matt Schaub at all,'' Allen said. Yahoo!

Addition of Williams gives depth to Seattle's line (The Associated Press) ( today ) Courtesy of
Cliff Avril watched Kevin Williams going through practice drills, amazed by what he was seeing from a defensive tackle entering his 12th season. It's why Seattle pursued Williams so much during the offseason. I'm definitely going to pick his brain to see if I can steal another five years.'' The addition of Williams in June seemed like a smart way for Seattle to add a veteran to its defensive line at a relative bargain. Williams gives Seattle the chance to go big and play a front of three defensive tackles in run situations, but his quickness off the snap means he can also be used in passing downs. Yahoo!

Derek Carr, not Matt Schaub, to start Week 1 for Oakland Raiders (Shutdown Corner) ( today ) Courtesy of
The Oakland Raiders reportedly have switched gears at quarterback for Week 1 against the New York Jets. Second-round draft pick Derek Carr will start, per Fox's Jay Glazer, confirming what many had suspected when Matt Schaub suffered elbow tendonitis and Carr lit it up in the Raiders' preseason finale. Breaking: Raiders players have been informed that the team is making the switch at QB and starting Derek Carr over Matt Schaub — Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) September 1, 2014 [ Smack talk season is back at Yahoo Sports: Sign up and play free Fantasy Football! ] Carr had a terrific training camp and start to the preseason but was set back in the second exhibition game when he suffered a rib injury and was tested for a concussion. The Raiders held Carr out of the third preseason game against the Green Bay Packers, a contest in which Schaub and the offense struggled. Schaub came out of that game with elbow pain, and when Carr was cleared to play against the Seattle Seahawks in the preseason finale, he made the most of it. Carr was exceptional in leading four touchdown drives in his four posssessions — including two with the Seahawks' starters in the game — with three touchdown passes. Head coach Dennis Allen pulled Carr in the first half, as if he'd seen enough to know that Carr could start if needed. Schaub's elbow was tested Monday, and it's believed that he wasn't healthy enough to go Sunday against the Jets. Schaub's health might not have mattered too much. Carr was the better performer in the preseason, and the Raiders need not delay the future if Schaub or No. 3 QB Matt McGloin can't get it done. The Jets likely will be shorthanded in the secondary, with top corner Dee Milliner (high ankle sprain) in serious doubt for the opener. It's likely that the Jets will have to have Antonio Allen, a converted safety, and Darrin Walls as their starting corners outside, with Kyle Wilson in the slot. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

Right guard Boone passes physical, rejoins 49ers (The Associated Press) ( today ) Courtesy of
San Francisco 49ers right guard Alex Boone has passed his physical and rejoined the team for its Week 1 preparation ahead of Sunday's opener at Dallas. The 27-year-old Boone reached agreement on a restructured $6 million, two-year contract Sunday. The 49ers requested a roster exemption and Boone must be added to the 53-man roster before he can play. Boone is a key member of a veteran offensive line and the unit struggled to protect quarterback Colin Kaepernick during the preseason. Yahoo! Mon, Sep 01
