New Orleans Saints quarterback Derek Carr played with injury in New Orleans woeful loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
“We got our ass beat today,” Saints coach Dennis Allen said. “Unacceptable. Obviously, nobody is happy about it.”
The Saints (2-2) were booed at home multiple times on Sunday.
Carr finished 23-of-37 passes for 137 yards and no touchdowns in the loss and had only 79 passing yards through three quarters.
Just really inconsistency right now,” Carr said. “Just too inconsistent for the standard that we set for ourselves, and the inconsistency isn’t going to get you wins in this league.”
Allen said Carr looked good throwing in practice on Friday after not taking team shots on Wednesday or Thursday, which is why he decided to start him.
“I don’t think there was anything in there that made me feel like he can’t play,” Allen said.
“Did he miss some throws? Yeah, he missed some throws. Is it related to the shoulder injury? I can’t tell you that. I thought we had some opportunities … and I don’t think we took advantage of the opportunities that we had.”
“There’s probably a couple of throws where I felt like it might have come up a little bit short and I don’t know that was relative to the shoulder or not,” Allen said.
