Carpenter (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Friday.
The 30-year-old suffered the concussion against the Saints on Thanksgiving Day and will end up missing the final four games of the season. Carpenter struggled with injury and inconsistency in 2019 and finishes the year with 11 starts.
Carpenter (concussion) is out for Sunday's matchup against San Francisco, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Carpenter was a fixture at guard for the Falcons in the early going of 2019, playing all 349 of Atlanta's offensive snaps between Weeks 1 and 5. Since then, however, partially marred by injury and partially set back by inconsistent play, Carpenter's season has gone downhill. He momentarily shifted into a work-share situation between Weeks 6 and 7 before resuming his typical full-time role Weeks 10 through 13, but he suffered a concussion Thanksgiving night against the Saints and has not yet been able to return to the field.
Carpenter (concussion) was a non-participant for Wednesday's practice session, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.
Atlanta may be without one of its starting offensive guards yet again Week 15, which is bad news considering that San Francisco ranks No. 3 in the NFL with 45 sacks. The Falcons have dealt with a plethora of injuries along the interior offensive line in 2019. The concussion Carpenter suffered during a Thanksgiving loss to New Orleans was yet another hit to an Atlanta front five that ranks 31st with 106 QB hits surrendered on the year. He hasn't yet been ruled out for Sunday's upcoming matchup, but Carpenter will have to clear the concussion protocol before suiting up against the 49ers.
Carpenter (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Carpenter sustained the concussion during Week 13 versus the Saints and will miss at least one game as a result. Wes Schweitzer and Chris Lindstrom (foot), who is returning from injured reserve, should serve as Atlanta's starting guards versus Carolina.
Carpenter (concussion) did not participate during Wednesday's practice, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.
The 30-year-old guard started in 11 of Atlanta's first 12 games of the year, with his only inactive designation coming Week 8 when the Falcons took on Carpenter's former team of four years in Seattle. He was dealing with a knee issue at the time but now is saddled with a concussion, having suffered the head injury during a Thanksgiving night loss to the Saints. If Carpenter is forced to miss the Falcons' Week 14 game against Carolina, Wes Schweitzer and Jamon Brown are expected to serve as Atlanta's starting guards.
Carpenter left Thursday's game against the Saints after suffering a concussion and is questionable to return, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.
Jamon Brown will fill in as the right guard, with Wes Schweitzer sliding over to left guard in the absence of Carpenter, who left Thursday's game after evidently suffering a concussion.
Carpenter (knee) has no injury designation for Sunday's game at New Orleans, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Carpenter was unable to play Week 8 but is good to go coming out of the Falcons' bye week. The 30-year-old should return to his starting spot at left guard versus the Saints.
Carpenter (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Carpenter was bothered by a knee injury ahead of Week 7's loss to the Rams but was able to play. He downgraded to a DNP on Thursday, and now he'll be replaced by either Ty Sambrailo or Wes Schweitzer at left guard.
Carpenter (knee) is slated to play in Sunday's game against the Rams, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
The veteran guard was downgraded to a non-participant Thursday after logging a limited session Wednesday, but has since been deemed active for Week 7. He played 100 percent of the offensive snaps over the first five games of the season, but split time with Wes Schweitzer at left guard Week 6 against Arizona, fielding 72 percent of the snaps on the afternoon. The fact that Carpenter will be able to go is a huge positive for a Falcons offensive line preparing to face a Rams defense that ranks in the lower half of the league with 13 sacks thus far this season.
Carpenter (knee) did not practice Thursday, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.
Carpenter was limited in practice Wednesday, but the starting guard was downgraded to a non-participant Thursday. He appears to be in legitimate danger of missing Sunday's tilt against the Rams, which would be a huge blow to Atlanta's already banged-up offensive line.
Carpenter (groin) was back for Sunday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Carpenter had been dealing with a hip flexor strain since Aug. 4 but rejoined the team Sunday. Expect the lineman to resume his normal starting role at left guard now that he's healthy.
Carpenter did not practice Sunday due to a hip flexor strain, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.
There appears to be a lot of mystery surrounding the lineman's health, so more information on Carpenter's recovery timetable won't be known until further tests are done.
Carpenter (shoulder) was able to fully participate during OTAs, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.
Carpenter missed the last six games of the regular season due to shoulder surgery. In addition to Carpenter's involvement in OTAs, the Falcons' decision to extend him a four-year, $21 million contract this offseason implies confidence in his health. Aside from 2018, Carpenter has played in all 16 games in every season of his eight-year career.
Carpenter (shoulder) agreed Wednesday with the Falcons on a four-year, $21 million contract, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
The deal includes $7 million fully guaranteed once he puts pen to paper and an additional $2.25 million guaranteed over the life of the contract. The structure of the contract makes it less onerous for the Falcons to move on from Carpenter after the 2019 season if the soon-to-be 30-year-old doesn't perform as well as the team hopes. Carpenter continues to work his way back from shoulder surgery but should be ready to go for the start of the upcoming campaign.
Carpenter (shoulder) intends to sign a four-year contract with the Falcons, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Carpenter will join a revamped Falcons' offensive line in 2019. A reliable starter at left guard with 97 career starts under his belt, Carpenter played the first 10 games of the 2018 season and all 16 in each of the previous three years. As there haven't been any reports of setbacks in his recovery from undergoing shoulder surgery in November, it wouldn't be surprising if Carpenter were good to go for OTAs this spring.
Carpenter will undergo shoulder surgery and has been placed on injured reserve, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Carpenter will thus miss the remainder of the 2018 season for the Jets after starting the first 10 games of the season and all 16 in each of the previous three years. The veteran will likely hit free agency this offseason, and while the shoulder injury could impact his value, Carpenter's overall reliability in the past four seasons should find him plenty of suitors on the open market.
Carpenter (shoulder) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Carpenter will likely be replaced by Dakota Dozier at guard, with his next chance to return from a shoulder injury coming next week against the Titans.
The Jets will sign free agent guard James Carpenter to a four-year, $19 million deal, reports Yahoo Sports. Carpenter started 39 games for the Seahawks over the past four seasons.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday on 710 ESPN Seattle that guard James Carpenter suffered a concussion during the Super Bowl, but the team didn't realize it during the game because he never came out, the Everett Herald reports.
Carpenter played all 54 offensive snaps during the 28-24 loss to New England, and it's unclear when he suffered the concussion. He's scheduled to reach unrestricted free agency this offseason.
