"We'll see where [Schaub's] at tomorrow and kind of take that day-by-day," coach Dennis Allen noted Sunday.

News: Schaub completed 13-of-27 passes for 110 yards in Friday's preseason game against the Packers. Impact: Despite his awful preseason, Schaub is seemingly locked in as the Week 1 starter. Derek Carr (concussion) did not play in Friday's game after performing well in the Raiders' second exhibition contest, but he may be healthy in time for the regular season. If Schaub doesn't improve in a hurry, he won't hold on to the starting job for long.(RotoWire, )

News: Schaub completed 8-of-13 passes for 87 yards and an interception in Friday's preseason game against the Lions. Impact: The 33-year-old is averaging just 5.4 yards per attempt through two exhibition games, but he did lead his first scoring drive as a Raider in his final series Friday. It's telling that the team gave Derek Carr a series with the first unit, after coach Dennis Allen said earlier in the week that it wasn't in the plans, but Carr suffered a concussion in the game, further cementing Schaub as the starter.(RotoWire, )
