Dolphins' Cethan Carter: Signs with Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter signed a three-year deal with the Dolphins on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Carter spent the first four seasons of his career in Cincinnati, though he missed all of 2018 with an arm injury. Though he's appeared in at least 15 games in his three other campaigns, Carter has commanded only 11 career targets. Instead, his primary value comes as a blocker, and he'll now work behind the likes of Mike Gesicki, Durham Smythe and Adam Shaheen in Miami.

Bengals' Cethan Carter: Serves as blocker 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter hauled in one of two targets for a 21-yard gain in the Bengals' Week 17 loss to the Ravens.

The tight end suited up in 15 of the Bengals' 16 games, but he drew a mere seven targets on his 220 offensive snaps for the season, illustrating how much the Bengals view him as a blocker. His role is unlikely to change no matter what other additions or subtractions the Bengals make at the position in 2021.

Bengals' Cethan Carter: No targets in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter played 14 offensive snaps and didn't receive a target in Sunday's 19-7 loss to the Dolphins.

Carter maintains around a 25 percent target share on a weekly basis. However, he's rarely used outside of a blocking role, as he's recorded just four receptions for 32 yards through 11 games.

Bengals' Cethan Carter: Full participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (shoulder) was a full go at Thursday's practice, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Carter currently sits second on the Bengals' tight end depth chart behind starter Drew Sample. The former only has two catches for 25 yards on the season.

Bengals' Cethan Carter: Won't go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (shoulder) won't play in Sunday's game against the Browns, Geoff Hobson of the team's official site reports.

Carter was originally thought to be a healthy scratch, however, he won't sit out due to the shoulder injury. The Bengals will head into the rivalry game with just two active tight ends in Drew Sample and Mason Schreck.

Bengals' Cethan Carter: One catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter had one catch for 24 yards in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.

Carter was only on the field for 20 offensive snaps, whereas fellow tight end Drew Sample was on the field for 64 snaps and had five targets to Carter's one.

Bengals' Cethan Carter: In line for more snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter is in line for more snaps as the Bengals' second tight end now that C.J. Uzomah is out for the season.

Carter presumably will be in there most often to block - in his first two seasons with the Bengals, he's had four targets, catching two passes for 13 yards and a touchdown. He had seven snaps Thursday night against the Browns without getting targeted.

Bengals' Cethan Carter: Nabs contract tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals tendered a 2020 contract Monday to Carter, a restricted free agent.

Carter has spent his entire career in Cincinnati after going undrafted out of Nebraska in 2017. He took on an expanded role for the Bengals over the final quarter of the 2019 season, but he made most of his impact as a blocker. During that four-game span, he only recorded two receptions for 13 yards and a score.

Bengals' Cethan Carter: Grabs first career TD in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter caught two of three targets for 13 yards and one touchdown across 15 regular-season games in 2019.

Carter kicked off the 2019 campaign relegated to special teams, but he managed to carve out a somewhat expanded role on offense after Drew Sample (ankle) suffered a season-ending injury. He's set to become a restricted free agent this offseason.

Bengals' Cethan Carter: First NFL touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter caught his first two targets of the season, including one that went for his first NFL touchdown, in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Carter was getting more work due to Drew Sample's season-ending injury. Prior to Sunday, almost all of his snaps had been on special teams.

Bengals' Cethan Carter: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter does not carry an injury designation Friday, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Tyler's absence from Friday's injury report indicates that he's fully cleared the league's five-step protocol for head injuries. He returned to practice without limitations Thursday. With Drew Sample (ankle) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns, Carter could be in line for increased depth snaps.

December 5, 2019 04:44 PM
Bengals' Cethan Carter: Upgrades to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (concussion) logged a full practice Thursday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Carter missed the team's Week 13 victory over the Jets and logged a limited practice Wednesday. However, he upgraded to the full practice Thursday and should be in a strong position to return for the Bengals' Week 14 matchup against the Browns as a result.

Bengals' Cethan Carter: Unavailable Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Carter sustained the concussion during Sunday's game against the Steelers and will miss at least one game as a result. Drew Sample (ankle) is also sidelined, leaving the Bengals with Tyler Eifert and C.J. Uzomah as the team's only tight ends this week.

November 28, 2019 03:12 PM
Bengals' Cethan Carter: No practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (concussion) is not practicing Thursday, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Carter is nursing a head injury, and he looks to be trending toward missing Sunday's tilt against the Jets. The depth tight end will need to fully clear the league's concussion protocol before retaking the field.

November 24, 2019 02:24 PM
Bengals' Cethan Carter: Checked for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter was forced out of Sunday's game against the Steelers to be evaluated for a concussion.

Carter is considered doubtful to return to Sunday's matchup, leaving C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Eifert as the Bengals' only healthy tight ends. If Carter's concussion is confirmed, it will be his second head injury of the year -- he suffered one in the preseason as well.

Bengals' Cethan Carter: Nabs one catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (concussion) logged one catch for four yards during Thursday's preseason loss to the Giants.

Carter has fully cleared the concussion protocol and managed to show up on the stat sheet during Cincinnati's third exhibition tilt. He'll resume competing for a depth tight end role.

August 13, 2019 04:56 PM
Bengals' Cethan Carter: Nursing concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter suffered a concussion during Saturday's preseason tilt against the Chiefs, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Carter exited Saturday's preseason game due to what was initially reported to be a neck sprain and has now been revealed to be a concussion. He'll need to fully clear the league-mandated protocol before retaking the field for any preseason action.

August 11, 2019 03:52 PM
Bengals' Cethan Carter: Suffers injury Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter suffered a neck strain and was unable to return to Saturday's preseason game against Kansas City, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

It's unclear how Carter picked up the injury, but it was serious enough for the depth tight end to miss out on valuable game reps. Expect the team to update the Nebraska product's status in the coming days. As long as he's out, Jordan Franks and Mason Schreck stand to see an increase in reps.

Bengals' Cethan Carter: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (arm) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Carter injured his arm during Thursday's preseason finale. It's unlikely that Carter was going to beat out the likes of C.J. Uzomah or Mason Schreck for a reserve gig anyhow. Carter will be eligible to return after Week 8, but the odds of that happening seem unlikely.

August 31, 2018 03:28 AM
Bengals' Cethan Carter: Injures arm
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter left Thursday's preseason game against the Colts with his arm 'dangling', Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

Carter had a chance to beat out Ryan Hewitt for the Bengals' H-Back role prior to the injury.
