The Raiders had hoped to regularly incorporate backup quarterback Marcus Mariota into their offense this season. It lasted a whole room.

Mariota played a snap Monday night and ran 31 yards, but he worsened a quadriceps injury and will now miss several weeks, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The Raiders haven’t provided an update on in-game injuries on Mariota, as NFL teams are supposed to. They could be fined by the league for it.

While Mariota is out, Nathan Peterman will be promoted to No.2 quarterback and Derek Carr is expected to take all the shots.
