  • Falcons' Bruce Carter: Lands extension

    Carter and the Falcons agreed to a one-year extension Monday, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

    Carter played 11 games with the Falcons in 2018, racking up 16 solo tackles and five assisted tackles. He also played 188 snaps on special teams. The veteran linebacker will bring experience and depth to Atlanta's defense in 2019.

  • Falcons' Bruce Carter: Modest debut campaign with Atlanta

    Carter accounted for 16 solo tackles and five assisted tackles for the Falcons in 2018.

    The veteran linebacker has become less and less of a defensive factor over the latter stages of his career, logging just four starts across his past four seasons with the Buccaneers, Jets and Falcons, compared to 32 starts during four years in Dallas. A surprising 70.1 percent of Carter's snaps for Atlanta this season came on special teams, as he picked up his most tackles since 2015 despite suiting up for only 11 games. With his contract expiring this winter, there is potential for Carter to be playing elsewhere next year as Atlanta looks to continue infusing youth into the roster.

  • Jets' Bruce Carter: Ready for Sunday

    Carter (groin) is not listed in the Jets' final injury report heading into Sunday's game versus the Saints.

    Carter has missed the Jets' previous two games while nursing a groin injury, but he appears fully recovered from the issue. Assuming he avoids any setbacks, look for the 29-year-old to resume his role providing depth at linebacker Sunday.

  • Jets' Bruce Carter: Practices without limitations

    Carter (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice and will be ready to play Sunday against the Buccaneers, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Carter left Week 9's game, a Thursday night matchup, early with this hamstring ailment. It appears it was just a minor tweak, though, and he'll return to his reserve role Sunday.

  • Jets' Bruce Carter: Out for rest of Thursday's game

    Carter is out for the remainder of Thursday's game with a hamstring injury, Darryl Slater of the The New Jersey Star-Ledger reports.

    Carter's absence will hurt the Jets' depth at linebacker behind starters Demario Davis and Darron Lee. He will try to recover before the Jets take on the Buccaneers in Week 10.

  • Jets' Bruce Carter: Full participant Wednesday

    Carter (ankle) was a full participant at the Jets' practice Wednesday.

  • Jets' Bruce Carter: Out for Sunday

    Carter (ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

    Carter suffered this injury against the Bills in Week 1, but the severity wasn't clear. Either way, Carter is more of a special teams player than anything, and he wasn't slated for many snaps behind Demario Davis or Darron Lee, who combined for 24 tackles in the season opener.

  • Jets' Bruce Carter: Suffers ankle injury

    Carter (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's matchup with the Bills, Darryl Slater of The Star-Ledger reports.

    Carter is mainly designated for special teams roles, but he occasionally fills in on defense. If he's unable to return, don't expect much to change with the dynamic of the Jets' defense, but fellow linebacker Julian Stanford may see more playing time if that's the case.
