  • Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Ruled out Monday

    Carter (ankle/illness) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Buccaneers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Carter was unable to practice this week due to a stomach illness and will miss a third straight game as a result. Quincy Roche and Cam Brown should see additional snaps in primetime.

  • Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Misses third practice

    Carter (ankle/illness) will not practice Friday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

    Carter has missed three straight practices due to a stomach illness, and prior to the Giants' bye week he also missed two consecutive games with an ankle injury. As such, the starting linebacker is looking iffy for Monday night's road matchup against the Buccaneers.

  • Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Won't play Monday night

    Carter (ankle) has been ruled out of Monday night's game against the Chiefs, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Carter was unable to practice all week after picking up the injury in Week 7. Quincy Roche saw the largest increase in snaps once the 25-year-old was forced out and will likely fill in again.

  • Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Suffers ankle injury

    Carter suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's game against the Panthers and is questionable to return, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Carter had already matched his season-high mark of four tackles in the game prior to exiting in the first half. Quincy Roche likely will have more opportunities in Carter's absence.

  • Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Taking part in OTAs

    Carter (Achilles) is participating in full-speed individual drills during the Giants' OTA, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

    Carter underwent season-ending Achilles' surgery following a rupture in mid-October of last year, so his participation in OTAs suggests he's made a relatively speedy recovery. Barring a setback of some kind later in the offseason program, Carter should be ready to retake his spot at outside linebacker after amassing 15 tackles (11 solo) and a sack over five games last season.

  • Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Shifts to injured reserve

    Carter (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The 24-year-old underwent season-ending Achilles surgery last week, so it was only a matter of time before the move to injured reserve. Carter will need to avoid any setbacks during his recovery to have a chance of playing early next season.

  • Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Goes under knife

    Carter underwent season-ending Achilles' surgery Wednesday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

    The Giants have yet to officially place Carter on injured reserve after he ruptured his Achilles during Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, but such a transaction is no doubt forthcoming. In his stead, Markus Golden figures to inherit a full-time role at outside linebacker.

  • Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Out with ruptured Achilles

    Carter suffered a ruptured Achilles during Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    The 24-year-old was carted off the field with the Achilles issue during Sunday's contest, and further diagnosis confirmed a worst-case scenario. Carter figures to require surgery and should be placed on injured reserve in the near future.

  • Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Suffers Achilles injury

    Carter has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game versus the Cowboys after being carted off the field with an Achilles injury, Matt Lombardo of NJ.com reports.

    Carter suffered a noncontact Achilles injury, which often signals a season-ending injury. The Giants likely will run an MRI to confirm the diagnosis, but it's unfortunate news for an already struggling defense. Carter has recorded 15 tackles, a sack and a pass breakup this season.

  • Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Sack on Sunday

    Carter recorded four tackles, all solo, and a sack across 64 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Bears.

    Carter notched his first sack of 2020 after logging 4.5 sacks last season with the Giants. He missed a single snap on Sunday and trails only Blake Martinez for most snaps among linebackers this season for New York.

  • Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Wraps 2019 with 4.5 sacks

    Carter accumulated 45 tackles (25 solo), 4.5 sacks, five defended passes and one forced fumble across 15 contests in 2019.

    Carter improved on his rookie stat line by two solo tackles, one defended pass and a half-sack. He's now logged 15 appearances in each of his first two seasons. The 24-year-old's consistency should earn him a similar role in New York's linebacker corps for 2020.

  • Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Ready for Week 17

    Carter (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game versus the Eagles.

    Carter began the week not progressing but worked as a full participant Friday to avoid the questionable tag. The 24-year-old should play his usual snap share for the Giants in the season finale.

  • Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Nursing knee injury

    Carter did not participate in the team's estimated practice report Wednesday due to a knee injury, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

    Carter was a new addition to the injury report, apparently picking up the issue in the team's Week 16 win over Washington. It's unclear whether he will be held out of the team's regular-season finale against the Eagles, though his participation in practice for the remainder of the week should provide more clarity.

  • Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Brings down quarterback

    Carter notched four tackles (two solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Bears.

    Carter suited up in 56 of 76 defensive snaps in the game, and now sits at 37 tackles (20 solo), 3.5 sacks and a fumble recovery in 10 games this year. The 23-year-old has carved a nice role for himself in the defense, as he's suited up in at least 50 snaps in nine of 10 games this season. He and the Giants defense will face a tough matchup when they take on Green Bay in Week 13.
