Carrie signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Colts on Saturday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
With the Colts re-signing Xavier Rhodes, Carrie decided to try free agency in hopes of securing a larger role elsewhere. With no luck, the 30-year-old cornerback will return to Indianapolis. He recorded 32 tackles, eight pass breakups and two interceptions through 15 games last season, averaging 26 defensive snaps. Carrie is slated for a situational role in the Colts' secondary once again.
Carrie had one tackle and two passes defensed in Thursday's win over Tennessee. He also scored a touchdown on special teams after recovering a blocked punt and returning it for a touchdown.
He played on 32 of the defense's 65 snaps with Kenny Moore leaving the game with a rib injury. Carrie responded by allowing just one reception on four throws targeted at him, according to Pro Football Focus. He could get more playing time in Week 11 as a result.
Carrie (hamstring) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Browns, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Carrie practiced at full speed Friday and will return to the lineup after missing just one game. The Colts' secondary is finally healthy, save for Malik Hooker (Achilles), just in time to face Odell Beckham and the Browns. Carrie's role fluctuated from game to game when he was healthy, so it's uncertain how much he'll play Sunday, especially coming off a hamstring injury.
Carrie (hamstring) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice.
Carrie was unable to suit up in Week 4 due to the hamstring injury and he appears to still be dealing with it. The good news for the Colts is that Rock Ya-Sin (undisclosed) was back at practice Wednesday, signaling at least one of them will be ready to play in Sunday's matchup with the Browns.
Carrie (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports.
Carrie is nursing a hamstring injury sustained during Thursday's practice, and he'll be forced to miss at least one contest while he recovers. He's played over 70 percent of defensive snaps in each of Indianapolis' last two games, but Rock Ya-Sin now looks ready to reclaim his usual starting role.
Carrie did not have a tackle and played 11 snaps on defense in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville.
Carrie is set to have a reserve role in the secondary and may not play many snaps on defense if the unit is healthy.
The Colts and Carrie agreed to terms of a contract Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
With the addition of Carrie, the slot corner rounds out Indy's CB group. After missing four games combined in his first two seasons, he hasn't missed a contest since the start of the 2016 campaign. Over the last three years, he's averaged 70 tackles per season while compiling four fumble recoveries, three forced fumbles, two interceptions and two sacks.
The Browns released Carrie on Monday.
Carrie signed a four-year, $31 million deal with the Browns in March of 2018, but he ceded starting duties to Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams in 2019. The 29-year-old still played plenty due to injuries to the two starters, but he struggled in coverage, allowing 8.7 yards per target and a 68.3 completion percentage. Cutting Carrie loose will free up $6.35 million and $7.75 million against the salary cap over the next two seasons, respectively. He'll be free to sign with another team immediately.
Carrie had 52 tackles, one sack, four passes defensed, one interception, one forced fumble and one recovered fumble over 16 games in 2019.
Carrie played nearly 25 percent fewer snaps than he did in 2018, as the Browns went with younger cornerbacks acquired in the last two drafts. Denzel Ward (first round, 2018) and Greedy Williams (second round, 2019) were the starters when healthy. Carrie turned out to be useful as Ward and Williams each missed four games. He's reportedly a great clubhouse guy, of which the Browns need more. However, at $16.8 million due over two more seasons, that might be more than the Browns want to pay for a depth player who's a good influence. They can save $6.35 million in cap space by moving on now.
Carrie recorded four tackles (all solo) and one sack in Sunday's 41-24 win over the Dolphins.
Carrie managed to collect just the second sack of his career against the 2-9 Dolphins, and he'll continue to share cornerback duties with Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams versus the Steelers in Week 13.
Carrie racked up 10 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's 32-28 defeat at the hands of the Seahawks.
With Denzel Ward nursing a hamstring injury, Carrie made the most of his start, racking up his best output from a statistical perspective this season. Carrie would go on to play all 83 defensive snaps in the game, and he now sits at 27 tackles and an interception through six games. He and the Browns will have their bye Week 7.
Carrie will start at cornerback versus the Seahawks on Sunday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Carrie is set to draw his fourth consecutive start in place of Denzel Ward (hamstring). Over the last three weeks, he's averaged 5.3 tackles per game while notching one interception and two defended passes. As long as Ward remains sidelined, Carrie will retain fantasy value in IDP formats.
Carrie recorded seven tackles (six solo), two passes defensed and an interception across 66 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Rams.
The Browns were short-handed in the secondary Sunday with Denzel Ward (hamstring) and Greedy Williams (hamstring) sidelined. Thus, Carrie did not miss a defensive rep in the contest. Not only did he lead the team in tackles, but he also recorded his first interception of the season. If he continues to see his reps rise, Carrie could become quite the IDP candidate.
Carrie (hamstring) participated in practice Wednesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Carrie has been managing a hamstring injury since June but now appears back to full health. The sixth-year pro projects to play a depth role in the Browns' secondary.
Carrie (hamstring) didn't practice Friday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Carrie has been dealing with leg injury and he was held out of Thursday's game with the issue. He's likely looking at a backup or depth secondary role when he does return.
The non-contact leg injury Carrie sustained in practice Thursday is not believed to be serious, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
This is good news for Carrie, as non-contract injuries have a reputation for potentially being serious or even season-ending. The Ohio product was able to walk off the field under his own power. The Browns' mandatory minicamp concluded Thursday and the team won't reconvene until until training camp in late July.
Carrie exited Thursday's practice with what appeared to be a non-contact leg injury, Tom Reed of The Athletic reports.
Non-contact injuries are never good news, but Carrie was at least able to walk off the field under his own power. Thursday marks the final day of the Browns' mandatory minicamp and the team won't reconvene until training camp.
Carrie is expected to start at right cornerback against the Buccaneers on Sunday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Carrie will step into the starting lineup in place of E.J. Gaines (concussion) against the Buccaneers' league-leading passing offense. The 28-year-old has already had success accumulating tackles in a rotational role, and he could be an attractive IDP play as long as Gaines remains sidelined.
Carrie posted 12 tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 45-42 overtime loss to Oakland.
Carrie's 12 tackles only fell short of linebacker Joe Schobert, who set the pace with 14 total tackles. The 28-year-old is expected to see an increased workload going forward with Terrance Mitchell (wrist) on injured reserve.
Carrie racked up eight tackles (six solo) and a sack during Sunday's 21-18 loss to the Saints.
Carrie tied for the team lead in tackles and took part in the Browns' three-sack performance by getting to Drew Brees for his first sack of his career. The 28-year-old was signed to a four-year deal this offseason and is expected to play a significant role in 2018.
