Matt Schaub not with Raiders on Sunday
If the Raiders need to turn to a quarterback other than Derek Carr on Sunday, it won’t be Matt Schaub.
The team announced that Schaub will not be in New England for the game with the Patriots. Ed Werder of ESPN reports that Schaub returned home to be with his wife after she had an emergency caesarean section to deliver the couple’s baby.
The birth was premature, but both mother and child are said to be doing well. Everyone at PFT hopes things remain that way and offer our congratulations to the Schaub family on their new arrival.
Matt McGloin will back up Carr on Sunday. The Raiders travel to London for a Week Four date with the Dolphins and it’s unclear at the moment whether Schaub will be joining them for that trip.
