It’s been reported by Mike Klis of the Denver Post that Broncos safety Quinton Carter will miss the first two preseason games as Denver opens their preseason schedule next Thursday on August 9th vs. the Bears.
Carter injured his hamstring and knee when the Broncos moved their second training camp practice from outdoors to indoors due to bad weather. Carter injured his hamstring and knee while trying to stop himself from running into a soccer post while covering a deep pass intended for receiver Eric Decker.
This injury has got to hurt Carter. Carter started 10 games last season for the Broncos as a rookie, and even started Denver’s two postseason games with fellow rookie Rahim Moore. Both players, alongside 10-year veteran Mike Adams, were competing for the two safety spots. Entering training camp, it was expected that Adams would have one of the safety spots locked up – free safety – while the two second-year players, Moore and Carter, would compete for the strong safety spot.
