Nine passes defensed in 2023

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-19

Carter finished the 2023 season with 50 tackles (37 solo) and nine passes defensed.

Carter was among the league's top performing nickel cornerbacks while Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed patrolled the outside for a Jets secondary that allowed the fewest catches, receiving yards and touchdowns to wide receivers in 2023. While Carter's 50 tackles were a career low, he posted nine passes defensed for a second consecutive season. The 2021 fifth-round draft pick is expected to reprise his role in the slot in the final year of his rookie contract in 2024.

Looks ready to suit up

Carter (hamstring) was a full participant at practice Thursday, Rich Cimini of reports.

After limited participation Wednesday, Carter was able to give practice a full go Thursday, putting him on track to return to action in Week 13. He figures to step back into a nickel corner role behind Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed on Sunday versus the Falcons.

Back at practice Wednesday

Carter (hamstring) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Rich Cimini of reports.

Carter was unable to practice last week before Friday's loss versus the Dolphins, but his listing Wednesday is an encouraging sign for his potential availability in Week 13. If he can upgrade to full participation Thursday or Friday, he could possibly avoid carrying an injury designation into the weekend.

Inactive for Week 12

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-24

Carter (hamstring) is officially inactive for Friday's game against the Dolphins.

Carter will miss a second consecutive game due to this injury, so Brandin Echols and Bryce Hall should continue to see added playing time at cornerback alongside Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed. Carter's next chance to take the field will come against the Falcons on Dec. 3.

Considered doubtful for Friday

Carter (hamstring) was a non-participant during Thursday's walkthrough practice, Rich Cimini of reports.

Carter is expected to miss his second straight game with the injury, although he hasn't officially been ruled out yet. His absence would lead to an increase in opportunities for Brandin Echols against the Dolphins on Friday.

Won't suit up Week 11

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-19

Carter (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's contest versus Buffalo.

Carter came into the weekend without an injury designation, but he was added to the injury report and deemed questionable on Saturday due to a hamstring issue. Given the nature of such injuries, it's not surprising that the cornerback won't be able to take the field Sunday. Brandin Echols and Jarrick Bernard-Converse should see more work in Carter's stead. Meanwhile, Carter will look to return for Week 12, though that might be challenging given the short turnaround with the Jets next playing on Friday versus Miami.

Dealing with hamstring issue

Carter (hamstring) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Bills.

The third-year cornerback out of Duke was surprisingly added to New York's injury report Saturday after logging a full week of practice. If Carter were to miss this Sunday's contest, Brandin Echols and Jarrick Bernard-Converse would likely see an uptick in snaps in the Jets' secondary.

Practices in full

Carter (elbow) was a full participant at Friday's practice.

After consecutive days of limited participation at practice, Carter logged a full workload Friday and looks good to go for Week 3. He has accumulated eight tackles (six solo) on 87 defensive snaps through two games this season.

Team cautious with injury

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-17

Carter (elbow) did not return to Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Jets, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

Carter reportedly could have returned to the game, but the Jets were content with taking the cautious approach with their nickel cornerback. The 24-year-old seems likely to be able to play in Week 3 versus New England, but more information on his status will likely come when New York returns to practice this week.
