Denver safety Quinton Carter has landed on season-ending injured reserve for the second straight year.

Carter started 10 games as a rookie in 2011 and had interceptions in consecutive playoff games that year. But a torn right hamstring at an indoor practice the following summer led doctors to discover he needed surgery on his left knee. He played in just three games in 2012 before aggravating his surgically repaired knee and going on IR.

The Broncos also placed center J.D. Walton on reserve/PUP to reach the 75-player roster limit Tuesday.

Walton had complications in his comeback from left ankle surgery and needed another operation in June. He won't be able to practice until Oct. 15 at the earliest but might not return until November.
