Carter signed with the Redskins on Thursday. A 2011 fifth-round selection, Carter has bounced around the league as a special teams contributor and depth linebacker, recording 26 tackles in 62 regular-season games. He'll likely be buried on the defensive depth chart in Washington, with special teams once again representing his best chance to contribute.
Carter (shoulder) will play in Week 17 against the Jaguars. Carter entered Sunday a bit of a question mark, but got in limited practice sessions both Wednesday and Thursday. He's not a huge playmaker on defense, so his presence on the field shouldn't make a major impact.
Carter (shoulder) is questionable to play in Sunday's game versus the Jaguars. Despite being limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday, Carter elevated to full-participant status Friday. Thus, barring any sort of setback between now and kickoff, he should ultimately be cleared to play.
Carter (shoulder) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Raiders. Carter's absence likely won't have much of an impact on the Colts' defense, while Erik Walden and Robert Mathis continue to start at outside linebacker.
Carter (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. Signed three weeks ago, Carter was inactive during his first game with the Colts prior to the team's Week 10 bye. However, his complete practice Wednesday suggests he is ready to make his debut in Indianapolis.
