The full back is currently suspended from Premiership duty, but he is suffering from a back complaint and Spurs want him to rest.
"Stephen's had a back problem for some time now," said Spurs' caretaker boss David Pleat.
"He's been playing with it but we won't risk him in the Irish squad next week with important games coming up at the end of the season.
"He's suspended at the moment so this was the time to try and get the injury right. Hopefully he'll make a quick recovery."
Carr will be back in action on May 8 against Blackburn, when his suspension is over.
