Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Shifts to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 24-year-old underwent season-ending Achilles surgery last week, so it was only a matter of time before the move to injured reserve. Carter will need to avoid any setbacks during his recovery to have a chance of playing early next season.

Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Goes under knife
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter underwent season-ending Achilles' surgery Wednesday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

The Giants have yet to officially place Carter on injured reserve after he ruptured his Achilles during Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, but such a transaction is no doubt forthcoming. In his stead, Markus Golden figures to inherit a full-time role at outside linebacker.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter suffered a ruptured Achilles during Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The 24-year-old was carted off the field with the Achilles issue during Sunday's contest, and further diagnosis confirmed a worst-case scenario. Carter figures to require surgery and should be placed on injured reserve in the near future.

Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Suffers Achilles injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game versus the Cowboys after being carted off the field with an Achilles injury, Matt Lombardo of NJ.com reports.

Carter suffered a noncontact Achilles injury, which often signals a season-ending injury. The Giants likely will run an MRI to confirm the diagnosis, but it's unfortunate news for an already struggling defense. Carter has recorded 15 tackles, a sack and a pass breakup this season.

Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Sack on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter recorded four tackles, all solo, and a sack across 64 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Bears.

Carter notched his first sack of 2020 after logging 4.5 sacks last season with the Giants. He missed a single snap on Sunday and trails only Blake Martinez for most snaps among linebackers this season for New York.

Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Wraps 2019 with 4.5 sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter accumulated 45 tackles (25 solo), 4.5 sacks, five defended passes and one forced fumble across 15 contests in 2019.

Carter improved on his rookie stat line by two solo tackles, one defended pass and a half-sack. He's now logged 15 appearances in each of his first two seasons. The 24-year-old's consistency should earn him a similar role in New York's linebacker corps for 2020.

Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Ready for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game versus the Eagles.

Carter began the week not progressing but worked as a full participant Friday to avoid the questionable tag. The 24-year-old should play his usual snap share for the Giants in the season finale.

Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Nursing knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter did not participate in the team's estimated practice report Wednesday due to a knee injury, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Carter was a new addition to the injury report, apparently picking up the issue in the team's Week 16 win over Washington. It's unclear whether he will be held out of the team's regular-season finale against the Eagles, though his participation in practice for the remainder of the week should provide more clarity.

Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Brings down quarterback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter notched four tackles (two solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Bears.

Carter suited up in 56 of 76 defensive snaps in the game, and now sits at 37 tackles (20 solo), 3.5 sacks and a fumble recovery in 10 games this year. The 23-year-old has carved a nice role for himself in the defense, as he's suited up in at least 50 snaps in nine of 10 games this season. He and the Giants defense will face a tough matchup when they take on Green Bay in Week 13.

Carter (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Injury not expected to be serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pat Shurmur expressed optimism Monday that Carter (ankle) is not managing a significant injury, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Carter suffered an ankle injury Week 7 versus the Cardinals, but it appears possible that he won't be required to miss time. What the starting linebacker is able (or unable) to do in practice this week will inform his chances of suiting up versus the Lions on Sunday.

Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Adds to sack total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter had three solo tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in Thursday's loss to the Patriots.

Carter sat out Week 5 with a neck injury but played 50 defensive snaps Thursday after being listed as questionable. The 23-year-old has 17 tackles (10 solo) and 1.5 sacks in five games this season.

Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Active for Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (neck) is active for Thursday's contest against the Patriots, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Carter carried a true questionable tag throughout most of the week after missing Week 5, but he'll suit up against New England and should slot into his normal starting role at linebacker. Carter and the rest of the Giants defense will face an enormous test attempting to slow down a Patriots offense that has rolled through its first five opponents.

Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Carries questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (neck) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game versus the Patriots, Ryan Dunleavy of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Carter was inactive for this past Sunday's game versus the Vikings, but he was able to practice in a limited capacity all week. He figures to be a true game-time decision Thursday, as he's expected to go through testing with the trainers before the inactives report is released at 6:50 p.m. ET.

Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (neck) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Carter injured his neck against the Redskins in Week 4 and was limited in practice throughout the week with the issue. Oshane Ximines is drawing the spot start with Carter out, and Tuzar Skipper may see a few extra snaps as well.

Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (neck) is questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota.

Carter sustained the neck injury during last week's win over the Redskins and was a limited practice participant this week. Tuzar Skipper and Oshane Ximines figure to see increased defensive reps should Carter be unable to suit up.

Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (neck) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Washington, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

It's unclear how Carter picked up the injury, but he was forced to leave the game early in the fourth quarter. As long as Carter is sidelined, Tuzar Skipper and Oshane Ximines could see an increase in reps.

Giants' Lorenzo Carter: Injury surfaces
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (elbow) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

It's not clear when Carter suffered this injury since he played 77 percent of the defensive snaps in Week 3, which is average for the second-year pro. Carter will look to get healthy in time for Sunday's game versus the Redskins, as he'll be counted on to contain Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson while pressuring Case Keenum into mistakes.
