Derek Carr and Chris Olave Questionable for Week 14; Expected to Play
Derek Carr has cleared concussion protocol and, to the disappointment of fantasy owners, is expected to be on the field in Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers. Despite being limited earlier in the week, Carr became a full participant in Friday’s practice, dealing with a concussion, right shoulder, and rib injuries. While officially questionable for Sunday, all signs point to his active participation. Chris Olave, who missed practice due to illness, is also anticipated to play. Taysom Hill, nursing foot and left-hand injuries, is listed as questionable after missing practice.
The New Orleans Saints, facing a three-game losing streak, contemplate a shift to Jameis Winston for a much-needed spark. Winston and Carr bring distinct playing styles to the table; Winston, akin to a sports car, is known for his aggressive, strong-arm, shot-taking approach, in contrast to Carr’s reliable Sedan style, favoring shorter high-percentage passes. Despite fantasy owners yearning for Winston’s high-energy plays, it seems they’ll have to temporarily park that experience in the garage.
