Coach Dennis Allen said Carr has been cleared from a concussion, but the quarterback still has sore, bruised ribs and the team doesn't want to expose him to injury, per NFL Media's Steve Wyche.
The rookie signal-caller exited last week's game in the fourth quarter after suffering a blow. Carr pointed to his midsection, indicating an apparent rib injury.
Following the game Allen told reporters it was a concussion that forced Carr from the contest.
Here are some other injuries we are following Thursday:
- Steelers linebackers Jason Worilds and Sean Spence both exited with knee injuries and didn't return. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that Worilds left as a precaution and that his knee is structurally fine, according to a source who spoke to the linebacker. Spence suffered a PCL injury to his right knee. Cameron Heyward left the game with an ankle sprain.
