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.
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.
Carter was released by the Jets during roster cuts but returns to the team after fellow linebacker Lorenzo Mauldin (back) was placed on injured reserve. Carter played in 13 games for the Jets last season after coming over from Dallas. He should continue to play a role on special teams and in select defensive packages this year.
Carter was released Sunday by the Jets, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Carter signed with the Jets in May after recording 16 tackles in 13 games played. He'll now open the 2017 season on the free agent market, where he'll look to fill a void as a depth option at linebacker and special teams player.
