MINNEAPOLIS — The New Orleans Saints experienced a series of injuries during their 27-19 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. It began with quarterback Derek Carr, wide receiver Michael Thomas, and cornerback Marshon Lattimore all being forced to exit the game with various injuries.
Carr left the game late in the third quarter after taking high and low hits from Vikings defensive linemen. He suffered a right shoulder and head injury and was later diagnosed with a concussion. This marks the second time this season Carr has left a game early due to an injury.
Following Carr’s exit, backup quarterback Jameis Winston stepped in and made his presence known, registering 122 receiving yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in his time on the field.
Thomas also exited the game early with a knee injury, while Lattimore left in the fourth quarter with a leg injury. Overall, the Saints were plagued with injuries throughout the game.
Thomas’ departure came after he was arrested in Kenner, Louisiana, two days prior to the game. Even amid legal troubles and prior injuries, he had not missed a game this season.
Amidst the unfortunate injuries and challenges faced, the Saints will now have a bye week to regroup and strategize for the games ahead.
