Carr had only recently spoken of his desire to get back into action for Spurs, after spending six weeks on the sidelines with a groin injury, but he will now have to delay this return, as he waits to hear the extent of this latest injury.
Anderton, meanwhile, has picked up an Achilles injury and he joins Carr, Chris Perry, Chris Armstrong and Ben Thatcher in the Spurs treatment room, as manager George Graham's woes continue to mount.
"Stephen Carr broke down in training with an abdominal injury," said Graham. "We don't know how long he'll be out for, but I hope he won't need an operation."
"Anderton is definitely out of Saturday's game with an Achilles injury, but it is not the same Achilles that kept him out before.
"We have had injury problems since I've been at the club, and you've just got to deal with it," added Graham.
It wasn't all bad news for the Tottenham boss however, as both Les Ferdinand and Steffen Iversen have been made available for selection after recovering from their respective injuries, although Graham is not yet sure if the pair will figure at the weekend.
"Les Ferdinand and Steffen Iversen came through a reserve game but they have not played for a long time so they are still lacking in fitness and we will have to wait to see if they play on Saturday," he concluded.
