Carrier suffered tears to both the ACL and MCL in one knee in Week 14, so it isn't a shock that he's unable to practice at the outset of training camp. Despite progress with medical science, he'll be hard-pressed to make his presence felt at any point in the preseason, thereby hurting his chances of landing a spot on the 53-man roster. Jordan Reed (ankle) and Vernon Davis are all but assured jobs, while Niles Paul (ankle) and Logan Paulsen (toe) are present to round out the tight end corps.
Carrier (knee) probably won't be ready for the start of training camp, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.
Traded from San Francisco to Washington in exchange for a fifth-round pick before the 2015 season, Carrier caught 17 passes for 141 yards and a touchdown on 22 targets, working as either the No. 2 or 3 tight end. He then tore his ACL and MCL in mid-December, putting his 2016 availability into serious question. Even if he makes it back at some point in camp, Carrier will have to fight for a roster spot, as Washington also has Vernon Davis, Niles Paul (knee) and Logan Paulsen (toe) on the depth chart behind Jordan Reed.
Carrier tore his ACL and MCL this past Sunday. Washington's tight-end ranks include Je'ron Hamm and Alex Smith behind clear No. 1 option Jordan Reed.
Carrier's 2015 campaign ends with him catching 17 passes (on 22 targets) for 141 yards and one touchdown. With Carrier out, the
Derek Carrier (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Bears.
Carrier went down with a knee injury after hauling in his only reception of the day. He was questionable heading into the game while dealing with an ankle and Achilles injury that caused him to miss last week's game and will now return to the sideline. The Washington Redskins are down to two tight ends on their active roster, Jordan Reed and Je'Ron Hamm.
