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