Chris Carr sees a specialist for opinion on his hamstring

Ravens cornerback Chris Carr saw a specialist in Texas this week to get another opinion on his injured left hamstring, an injury that forced him out of last Sunday's victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Carr has been dealing with hamstring soreness since early in training camp.

"It's been frustrating because there's been a lot of work put into it. It's just been one of those nagging things, but I think it's going to be better pretty soon," Carr said. "That’s what I'm looking for. I went to Texas and saw somebody, and got another way of looking at the injury. I think that combined with the stuff I’m already been doing here, which has already been good, I think it's going to be good."

Carr’s hamstring issues, coupled by rookie Jimmy Smith's high ankle sprain, left the Ravens with just three healthy cornerbacks for an extended stretch of the victory against the Steelers.

"It was tough because the last game, on the receiver screen, I got caught in a really awkward position," Carr said. "I was really stretched out with my left leg and somebody was cutting me so that did it. Other than that, I was fine. So that was kind of the perfect storm. It’s been frustrating."

Carr spent the 2008 season with the Tennessee Titans, the Ravens' opponent Sunday.
