In an effort to find a solution to his lingering hamstring issues, cornerback Chris Carr flew to Texas in the days since Sunday’s game to see a specialist and get a second take on his injury.
“I went to Texas and saw somebody and got another way of looking at the injury,” Carr said today. “I think combined with the stuff I’ve already been doing here, which has already been good, I think it’s going to be good.”
Carr had to leave Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh in the first half, leaving the Ravens with three healthy cornerbacks. Including the Ravens’ third preseason game against the Redskins, Sunday marked the second time this season that Carr needed to leave a game because he felt the hamstring grab on him.
“It was tough,” Carr said. “This last game, it was on that receiver screen that I got caught in a really awkward position where I was really stretched out on my left leg and somebody was cutting me, so that did it. Other than that, I was fine, but it was kind of like the perfect storm. It’s been frustrating.”
Hamstring injuries can have a tendency to linger, and that’s certainly been the case with Carr early this season. He suffered the injury early in camp and seemingly hasn’t been able to put together more than a few days of practice at a time before he has some sort of setback.
“It’s been frustrating, because there’s been a lot of work going into it,” Carr said. “It’s just been one of those nagging things, but I think it’s going to be better pretty soon.”
