Carr in concussion protocol, and also has shoulder and back injuries. He's doubtful to return to this game.— Justin Rogers | Detroit News (@Justin_Rogers) December 3, 2023
Update: Carr was seen walking to the locker room for further evaluation and it is unclear if he’ll return to the contest.
Carr was planted into the ground by defensive end Bruce Irvin. He gingerly walked off the field and is now being evaluated in the blue medical tent. Jameis Winston has entered the game for the Saints, with Taysom Hill also taking snaps at QB.
Carr has been beaten up on a few occasions throughout the season already, suffering a shoulder injury in early October and a concussion last month. He went 17-22 for 226 yards with a touchdown and an interception before exiting the contest.
The Saints currently trail by one score in late in the fourth quarter of today’s game, so we’ll see if Winston/Hill can get them over the finish line.
