Miko Grimes is always a polarizing interview, but Tuesday morning on the Breakfast Club, she dropped some interesting information on Charlamagne and company.
Grimes, the wife of Buccaneers star cornerback Brent Grimes, said Oakland’s offensive line was upset with Carr over a lockerroom argument and purposefully allowed him to get hit.
Carr suffered the back injury in Week 4 and missed one game.
“(Carr) was against (the offensive line) protesting. And they had a fight in the locker room before that Monday night game with the Redskins. They were fighting in the locker room, and that’s the only all-black offensive line in the NFL is the Raiders.
“Derek Carr is a bible-thumper to the fullest. And so he was basically trying to force the players to read the bible before the game, and do all this stuff and they were like, ‘No, that’s you.’ And so he was so upset about it, when the whole offensive line said they were going to kneel, he was like, ‘No, you’re not kneeling. This is America, you’re going to stand for the flag.’ And they got in a fight in the locker room, so when they came out to play, they basically had a plan.”
According to Miko — that injury was a message from the Raiders’ offensive line — who weren’t feeling his antics a week prior against the Redskins.
