With Derek Carr out, Ravens prepare for Raiders backup QB EJ Manuel

Ravens vs. Raiders Who the experts are taking Week 5

The Ravens announced quickly that West was doubtful to return with a calf injury.

So what do the Ravens make of Carr's situation?

After consecutive losses to the Washington Redskins and Denver Broncos, the Raiders will hope to get back on track and take advantage Ravens who have also struggled as of late. "I coached him in the Senior Bowl", Downing said. "I know he wants to play very badly". It wouldn't surprise me to see Carr as the No. 2 Sunday with Manuel getting the start.

Oakland Raiders offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse (73) looks at injured Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr (4) in the second half against the Denver Broncos at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

"I'm looking at it as an opportunity that's before me right now", Manuel said.

It last deployed the balloons to provide emergency phone service in Peru after a flood displaced thousands of people in March . When it hit, it was almost a category 5 storm, and pummeled the island with gusts and rains for more than 30 hours.

The intrigue began Thursday, when Carr was a surprising participant in practice (albeit limited). Despite his efforts, it appears Carr will not be the man under center for the Raiders vs. Ravens.

Through his five-year National Football League career, Manuel has thrown for 3,608 yards, 19 touchdowns and 16 interceptions with a 58.5 completion percentage. He combined to throw for 550 yards, seven touchdowns and a single interception in those contests, both of which Oakland won by less than a touchdown.

"Derek Carr is Derek Carr", linebacker Terrell Suggs said.

Manuel did beat the Ravens in 2013, although he did so in a remarkable way.

Marshawn Lynch has rushed for just 151 yards through four games, and 76 of those came Week 1. After going 6-11 for the Bills (played in 28 games) over four seasons, Manuel signed with Oakland as a free agent to back up Carr. "He is definitely going to run the same offense", Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said. "I told him that the team will take care of business while he's healing and just get healed up, and when he can come back, he'll come back".
