ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - Coach Dennis Allen says he expects to know who will start at quarterback for the Oakland Raiders when the team returns to practice Monday.
A sore elbow for Matt Schaub and a strong finish to the preseason by rookie Derek Carr have injected some doubt into what had seemed to be a resolved issue as recently as four days ago.
Allen said unequivocally Monday that Schaub would start the opener at the New York Jets on Sept. 7 even as he was sitting out the week of practice with a sore throwing elbow.
But Allen was far from definitive on Friday, a day after Carr threw three touchdown passes and led the Raiders to the end zone on all four drives he played in the exhibition finale against Seattle.
