Broncos put Carter on IR, Walton on PUP list
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
