Derek Carr, QB NO

3:32pm EST 12/8/23

Derek Carr questionable for Week 14

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.

Saints QB Derek Carr remains in the concussion protocol. The news comes straight from HC Dennis Allen. New Orleans doesn’t play until Sunday, so there’s time for Carr to get cleared coming off the bye week. For now, though, there’s at least a chance we'll see more of Jameis Winston. He’s a low-dollar speculative add for superflex managers seeking a short-term boost.

Saints HC Dennis Allen said Monday that QB Derek Carr's shoulder "checked out fine." He's in the concussion protocol, but it sounds like he'll be available coming off the Week 11 bye. Allen also said that he's not currently considering a move to QB Jameis Winston. We'll see if that changes during a week of film watching. But, for now, we should assume that it'll be Carr under center vs. the Falcons in Week 12.
