Former Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, now the starter of the New Orleans Saints, was injured Sunday at the Green Bay Packers.

Carr, in his first season with the Saints, departed the game in the third quarter after taking a hard hit on his shoulder. He later ruled out of the game after being escorted to the locker room.

NFL Media reported Carr was then taken to a Green Bay area hospital for more tests.

Carr led the Saints to a 17-0 lead. Hwoever, after he was injured, the Packers roared back and won the 18-17. The now 2-1 Saints, led by backup quarterback Jameis Winston, missed a field goal with just over a minute to go.

Time will tell if Carr will have to miss any more time. Carr, 32, last missed a game because of injury in 2017. The Raiders released Carr in February after he was the starter for nine season after being a second-round draft pick in 2014.

UPDATE:
The NFL Media is reporting that it appears the injury is not going to be season-ending, although Carr could miss some time.
