  • Dolphins' Cethan Carter: Clears COVID-19 list

    Carter (undisclosed) was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Carter missed Monday's contest against the Saints, but he is expected to return in Week 17 against the Titans. However, the 26-year-old tight end's presence is not expected to change much, as he hasn't played more than four offensive snaps since the first two weeks of the season.

  • Dolphins' Cethan Carter: Placed in protocol

    Carter (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

    If Carter's unable to clear COVID-19 protocols before Monday's game against the Saints, his absence is unlikely to have much of an effect on Miami's offense since he sits fourth on the tight end depth chart. It's not clear at this time whether he tested positive for the virus.

  • Dolphins' Cethan Carter: Injures leg in preseason opener

    Carter suffered a leg injury in the 20-13 loss against the Bears on Saturday, David Furones of the Sun Sentinel reports.

    While blocking, Carter had the action on the run roll into his left leg, causing him leave the game. The good news is that the 25-year-old was seen walking under his own power on the sideline. The fourth-year tight end spent last year in Cincinnati, where he played in 15 games, amassing five catches for 53 yards. If Carter is forced to miss significant time with the injury, his chances of making the roster are likely limited.

  • Dolphins' Cethan Carter: Lands on COVID list

    Carter was placed on the COVID-19 list Sunday.

    Carter, Mike Gesicki and Adam Shaheen all landed on the COVID-19 list as apparent close contacts after co-offensive coordinator and tight ends coach George Godsey tested positive for the virus, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Carter signed a three-year deal with the Dolphins in March after he totaled just 66 yards and a touchdown while serving primarily as a blocker in Cincinnati.

  • Dolphins' Cethan Carter: Signs with Dolphins

    Carter signed a three-year deal with the Dolphins on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Carter spent the first four seasons of his career in Cincinnati, though he missed all of 2018 with an arm injury. Though he's appeared in at least 15 games in his three other campaigns, Carter has commanded only 11 career targets. Instead, his primary value comes as a blocker, and he'll now work behind the likes of Mike Gesicki, Durham Smythe and Adam Shaheen in Miami.

  • Bengals' Cethan Carter: Serves as blocker 2020

    Carter hauled in one of two targets for a 21-yard gain in the Bengals' Week 17 loss to the Ravens.

    The tight end suited up in 15 of the Bengals' 16 games, but he drew a mere seven targets on his 220 offensive snaps for the season, illustrating how much the Bengals view him as a blocker. His role is unlikely to change no matter what other additions or subtractions the Bengals make at the position in 2021.
