"Luke obviously had the bang on the head [at Watford] and we were assessing him and he just wasn't quite right," Carrick told MUTV.
"He didn't quite get fit enough in time for the game. So it's unfortunate for Luke, but it is what it is.
"We look forward to the game with what we've got for sure, and I think it will be a good one."
