It looks like Derek Carr may start after all, Saints fans. The New Orleans Saints quarterback left last week's loss to the Green Bay Packers after a third quarter sack. He was taken to a local hospital for examination and observation with an injury to his right (throwing) shoulder.

Carr was diagnosed with a sprained AC joint in the shoulder. Most expected that he could miss at least a few weeks. Coach Dennis Allen announced that his status would be "week to week".

With Carr expected to miss at least some time, former Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston was expected to start in his place. Winston has been with the Saints since 2020 and has started 10 games for the team with a 6-4 record. With rookie QB Jake Haener suspended, the Saints also signed QB Jake Luton away from the Carolina Panthers practice squad onto their active roster.

John Hendrix of the Saints News Network reported on Friday that Carr had returned to practice in a limited capacity. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport revealed on Saturday that Carr was a possibility to play this weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if 'he could prove to coaches that he could protect himself'. ...

Saints can't afford to not make a change on offense amid historically-poor streak

It’s tough to win football games when you can’t put points on the board, and it’s past time the New Orleans Saints address it. It’s time offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael step down into a lesser role, which is what he’s wanted all along. Dennis Allen’s failure to recruit a new play caller led to Carmichael taking a job he wasn’t prepared for, and the results speak for themselves.

The Saints haven’t scored more than 21 points in 10 straight games, going back to last season. Whether it’s Derek Carr, Andy Dalton, or Jameis Winston at quarterback Carmichael has not been able to get the...

Baker Mayfield has 3 TD passes, ailing Derek Carr ineffective as Buccaneers top Saints 26-9

NEW ORLEANS — Baker Mayfield threw three touchdown passes for Tampa Bay, Derek Carr's surprise return from a shoulder injury did little to help New Orleans' anemic offense, and the Buccaneers beat the Saints 26-9 on Sunday.

Mayfield completed 25 of 32 for 246 yards including TDs to Cade Otten, Trey Palmer, and Deven Thompkins as the Bucs (3-1) took over first place in the NFC South.

Starting one week after spraining his throwing shoulder at Green Bay, and after only limited work in practice the past week, Carr struggled to move New Orleans' offense, which had accounted for just four...

Well that wasn’t much fun. The New Orleans Saints lost an ugly game to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, 26-9, and in a lot of ways it exemplified the style of football they’ve played under head coach Dennis Allen. This is how he wants his team to play. He has his quarterback, his play caller, his assistant coaches, and a roster largely made up of his handpicked players. What he doesn’t have are excuses.

So let’s break it down by answering three key questions:

Saints say Juwan Johnson is questionable to return vs. Bucs with calf injury

This is concerning. Starting tight end Juwan Johnson left the New Orleans Saints’ game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers early on their opening drive with what the team described as a calf injury, announcing that he was questionable to return. Johnson had not been listed on the injury report each week with a calf issue but he did receive treatment for it during preseason.

That meant Jimmy Graham was the only remaining option at tight end; Foster Moreau was ruled out with an injury of his own, and the Saints did not activate either of their practice squad tight ends (Tommy Hudson and Michael...

We’re closing in on the New Orleans Saints’ kickoff with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and both teams have released their lists of inactive players for Sunday’s game — though a number of players from each side were pre-emptively ruled out due to injuries.

Several key Buccaneers defenders were questionable to play with injuries, but they’ll all play: cornerback Carlton Davis, nose tackle Vita Vea, and linebacker Devin White. So will Saints quarterback Derek Carr who was also questionable because of an injury.

Here is who will be watching this matchup from the sidelines:
