Quinton Carter Injury: Broncos Safety Questionable To Return Vs. Patriots

Denver Broncos safety Quinton Carter is questionable to return against the New England Patriots on Saturday night, the team announced. He is dealing with a neck injury.

Carter has been hobbled by injuries since the beginning of the game. He did leave the game early in the first quarter, but he did return. He was able to pick off Tom Brady toward the end of the quarter, eventually leading to a Broncos touchdown to cut the deficit in half.

With Carter out, the Broncos are missing both starting safeties. Brian Dawkins is also out with a neck injury. David Bruton and rookie Rahim Moore are now in at safety. Rafael Bush is also available for the secondary.
