The NFL community responds to Derek Carr's announcement

The last NFL preseason game for the New Orleans Saints serves as a "dress rehearsal" for the regular season.

The last preseason game is typically used to get some playing time for starters.

Quarterback Derek Carr will not suit up for the Saints in their final preseason game, according to head coach Dennis Allen.

Nick Underhill, a beat reporter, tweeted the news.

The shocking decision comes despite Carr's obvious need for time to gel with the offense.

In Carr's lone preseason game, he completed 6 of 8 passes for 70 yards and one touchdown against the Chiefs.

Fans and social media react to the unexpected fan wrote,"Texans 1st team defense won’t have anything to remember when facing Carr week 6"

Another person said,''I feel like this is  a mistake"

Carr had no other opportunities for live action prior to this game.
