Saints quarterback Derek Carr is back in the concussion protocol.
Carr suffered his second concussion in the last four weeks during Sunday’s 33-28 loss to the Lions in Detroit and he has also dealt with multiple right shoulder issues, but he’s yet to miss a start in his first season in New Orleans.
HC Dennis Allen said that “it’s concerning” any time a player has a concussion in response to a question about multiple head injuries in a short period of time, the story said. The story also bought up the concussion and other injuries being a reason to sit Carr down. The Saints play the Panthers and Giants over the next two weeks as they look to stay in the playoff hunt. If Carr can't go, or the team feels he needs a rest, Winston would be in line to start.
Saints QB Derek Carr left Sunday's game against the Lions with a potential concussion and a shoulder injury.
It sounds like a similar injury to what Carr suffered in Week 10 but was able to avoid missing time thanks to the bye week the following week. That likely won't be the case here. Jameis Winston is in the game and could see more playing time while Carr likely will miss time. Tayson Hill has also been getting more involved as the Saints' Swiss Army knife.
Derek Carr has a concussion and right shoulder injury
Carr may have reaggravated an older shoulder injury, and has an AC joint sprain which is similar to an injury from earlier this season. The good new is neither injury is expected to keep Carr out of action, according to Rapoport. The Saints have a bye in Week 11, which comes at a good time for Carr. Rapoport said Carr should be OK to play in Week 12.
