Broncos DC Jack Del Rio said SS Quinton Carter (knee) "looks pretty good."

Carter hasn't appeared in a game since Week 3 of the 2012 season due to knee issues. He had microfracture surgery before suffering a setback last summer. Carter has spent the past two seasons on I.R. The (overly optimistic) Broncos website believes Carter could compete with Rahim Moore for the starting job next to T.J. Ward. Anything Denver gets from Carter should be viewed as a bonus.

Broncos placed SS Quinton Carter on injured reserve, ending his season.

Carter has been dealing with knee problems since early last season. He had microfracture surgery then had a setback during camp. Duke Ihenacho is the favorite to start at strong safety for the Broncos this year.

Broncos SS Quinton Carter's felony gambling charges have been dropped by prosecutors in Nevada.

Carter was charged on March 9 with three counts of a "fraudulent act against a gaming casino," after allegedly betting $5 chips too late on a craps table. Carter missed most of 2012 with a left knee injury, but coach John Fox recently described his recovery as "fantastic." He'll compete for a roster spot in 2013.

Broncos SS Quinton Carter was arrested last weekend in Las Vegas on felony charges that he cheated in a casino craps game.

Carter was arrested Saturday night on the accusation that he added money to his bets after the dice rolled. He's been charged with three counts of fraudulent act in a gaming establishment and faces up to 18 years in prison. Carter, at the time of his arrest, also had a warrant for failure to complete counseling after a 2011 misdemeanor marijuana possession charge. Carter played in just two games last season before a knee injury sent him to injured reserve.

Broncos coach John Fox told reporters at the Combine that SS Quinton Carter's recovery from knee surgery is "going fantastic."

"His rehab's going great," Fox emphasized. When Carter was placed on I.R. late last September, it was feared he'd require microfracture surgery on his right knee. An August scope hadn't fixed the joint. Carter will be back to compete for playing time in Denver, but this is a position the Broncos can upgrade.

Broncos placed safety Quinton Carter (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Carter had his right knee scoped in early August and is now facing the possibility of microfracture surgery. A second-year player out of Oklahoma, Carter started 10 games for the Broncos in 2011 and accumulated 56 tackles. He has played mostly special teams in 2012. The Broncos now have Jim Leonhard and David Bruton behind starters Mike Adams and Rahim Moore.

Broncos SS Quinton Carter will miss at least two preseason games after having his right knee scoped this week.

Carter got injured during an indoor practice on July 27, just as the Broncos had opened camp. He injured both his hamstring and knee, and had surgery on the latter. While it was just a "scope," Carter may now cede his starting job to Rahim Moore. Mike Adams is running as the Broncos' starting free safety in camp.

Broncos SS Quinton Carter exited Saturday's game in the second quarter with a neck injury.

Carter had been in and out through the first half, and he's now questionable to return. Nickel back Rafael Bush has come on to take his place, leaving Denver without both starting safeties.

Rookie SS Quinton Carter sustained a hamstring pull in the Broncos' Week 16 loss to the Bills.

The Broncos suddenly have major concerns at the safety spot heading into their showdown with the Chiefs. With Brian Dawkins (neck) also hurting, they may be forced to start backups Rahim Moore and David Bruton.

Broncos FS Quinton Carter suffered a concussion in the second quarter of Sunday's loss to the Lions.

Carter had just overtaken fellow rookie Rahim Moore for the starting gig a few weeks ago. He'll need to go through the NFL's concussion procedures before regaining his starting job.

Broncos signed No. 108 overall pick Quinton Carter to a four-year, $2.49 million contract.

Carter is coming off an All-America selection after a fantastic season at Oklahoma. More of a long-term NFL prospect, he'll likely start out on special teams behind veterans Brian Dawkins and Renaldo Hill.
Thu, Jul 28, 2011 05:17:00 PM

Broncos selected Oklahoma S Quinton Carter with the No. 108 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Carter is strong with a big frame and the requisite tools, but he doesn't trust his eyes and takes poor angles to the ball. He's more of a long-term project than second-round safety Rahim Moore. Expect Carter to start his career on special teams and ultimately end up as a third safety unless the Broncos staff can coach him up.
