Denver Broncos second-year safety Jamal Carter will have an MRI after injuring his hamstring in the team’s preseason opener against the Minnesota Vikings, according to KUSA-TV’s Mike Klis.
It sounds like Carter may have to miss some time.
Carter (6-1, 215 pounds) signed with the team as a college free agent out of Miami following the 2017 NFL draft. He dressed for all 16 games as a rookie, recording 11 tackles and breaking up one pass.
Because Denver is so deep at safety, Carter would likely play mostly on special teams if he makes the 53-man roster this season.
In addition to Carter, Broncos cornerback Marcus Rios (left hip) and tight end Austin Traylor (right shoulder) also left Saturday’s game after suffering injuries. Denver has not yet provided any updates on the statuses of Rios and Traylor.
