Carter (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Mike Klis of 9News.com reports.
Carter, who suffered an apparent torn hamstring during Saturday's preseason loss to the Vikings, has officially landed on IR. The Broncos signed fellow safety Shamarko Thomas on Monday in order to provide additional depth at the position.
Carter is likely out for the season after suffering a serious hamstring injury during the Broncos' preseason opener against the Vikings on Saturday, Troy Renck of TheDenverChannel.com reports.
Carter was primarily used on special teams during his rookie season with the team having enough safety depth, but the undrafted University of Miami product still played in all 16 games in 2017. If the injury is as serious as it's believed to be, expect Carter to land on injured reserve.
Carter injured his hamstring and will not return to Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings, Kyle Fredrickson of the Denver Post reports.
Carter, who played all 16 games for the Broncos in 2017, is a third-string safety whose injury should not carry a big fantasy impact.
Carter will not carry an injury designation into Thursday's game against the Colts despite his shoulder injury.
Carter was a full participant at Wednesday's practice to avoid the questionable tag after starting the week not participating due to a shoulder sprain. The 23-year-old should serve as the primary reserve safety for the Broncos with Justin Simmons (ankle) placed on injured reserve.
