Visibly dissatisfied with the veteran's most recent performance, McDaniels confirmed his intentions to the media on Wednesday, four days before the matchup against the San Francisco 49ers.
Thus, substitute Jarrett Stidham will find himself in charge of the attack of the team being virtually eliminated by virtue of a record of 6-9.
Carr, 31, struggled in a 13-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday. He completed 16 of 30 passes for 174 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. In the first year of a three-year, $121.5 million pact, he completed 60.8% of his stints in 2022 for 3,522 yards, 24 majors and 14 catches.
Third in the Western Division of the American Association of the NFL, Las Vegas must win its last two games and hope for defeats from many rivals, including the Miami Dolphins (8-7), to qualify.
