After inital xrays were taken at the stadium, Carr was taken to a local area hospital for further testing. NFLN's Ian Rapoport reported that it is believed that Carr has a AC sprain on his right (throwing) shoulder and could miss some time depending on the amount of swelling and his mobility.

The Saints had a 17-0 lead prior to Carr's injury but gave up 18 points in the fourth quarter, losing 18-17 to the Packers. The Saints are now 2-1 and will face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday with Jameis Winston at quarterback.
