Denver Broncos CB Tony Carter injures leg

Denver Broncos Tony Carter has injured his leg and has been taken out of the game against the Oakland Raiders on Monday night. Carter injured himself on a punt return in the first quarter.



According to Mike Klis, writer for the Denver Post, Carter is questionable to return to the game.


Carter did not take his usual role as the nickel cornerback later in the game. Kayvon Webster took his place.

Carter’s injury may not be a big problem to the Broncos in this game since Terrelle Pryor is not exactly the aerial threat that strikes fear in the heart of defensive coordinators, but if he ends up missing extended time he might be missed in upcoming games against the Eagles high-powered offensive and Tony Romo and the Cowboys.
