Bucs rule out Shaq Barrett (groin), Carlton Davis (concussion) vs. Saints

The Buccaneers have ruled Edge Shaq Barrett (groin) and CB Carlton Davis (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Saints. That hurts an already vulnerable pass defense. It's a nice fantasy spot for New Orleans QB Derek Carr and WR Chris Olave.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Saints QB Derek Carr will start today's game vs. the Panthers after clearing concussion protocol. But he'll do so with a non-displaced rib cartilage fracture and an AC joint sprain in his shoulder. Carr has already exited three games with injuries this season, and there's at least some chance he's unable to make it through today's contest. We'd try not to use him in Week 14 fantasy lineups.

Saints QB Derek Carr (concussion, rib, right shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Panthers. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice, so it looks like there’s a real chance he’s cleared to play on Sunday. We’ll look for further updates on Carr’s status and get New Orleans’ inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. QB Jameis Winston will start if Carr is out.

Saints QB Derek Carr (concussion, rib, right shoulder) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. HC Dennis Allen said that Carr "feels pretty good” in terms of the rib and shoulder injuries and that it's the concussion that could keep him out for this weekend's game vs. the Panthers. We'll see how Carr progresses through the protocol over the next few days, but QB Jameis Winston is still the favorite to start on Sunday.
