With the Rams, Carrier reunites with head coach Sean McVay, who was Carrier's offensive coordinator in 2015-16 when both were with the Redskins. He likely won't be anything more than the No. 3 tight end behind Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett, though, so he doesn't appear to have any fantasy value entering Week 1.
Carrier hauled in two passes for 22 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's preseason win over the Bengals.
Carrier made the most of his limited opportunities Sunday, as he brought in a nine-yard touchdown pass from Colt McCoy to begin the fourth quarter. Given that the Redskins boast plenty of talent at tight end, it's far from a given that Carrier lands a spot on the 53-man roster, but Sunday's performance certainly helped his cause. With Jordan Reed (toe) and Vernon Davis already poised to secure spots, Carrier will likely compete with the likes of Niles Paul and rookie Jeremy Sprinkle for reps in Thursday's preseason finale against the Buccaneers.
Carrier (ankle) returned to practice Monday, ESPN's John Keim reports.
Carrier missed practice Friday due to a sprained ankle, which apparently was fairly minor given his quick return to the fold. With Jordan Reed (toe) still sidelined, Carrier should now see a bit more action at tight end.
Carrier missed Friday's practice due to a sprained ankle, ESPN's John Keim reports.
Carrier and fellow tight end Vernon Davis (hamstring) injured themselves Thursday, leaving the Redskins a bit light on tight ends while top option Jordan Reed (toe) remains sidelined. Fortunately, Carrier is considered day-to-day, so his absence doesn't figure to last long.
Carrier (knee) is active for Sunday's matchup in Philadelphia.
Carrier will suit up, but he likely won't be much of a fantasy factor with Jordan Reed (shoulder) returning from a one-week absence. Carrier hasn't received more than a single target in a game this season, and getting noticed will be tough Sunday behind Reed and Vernon Davis on the depth chart.
