The No-Fly Zone only took another hit.

Mike Klis of 9News reports second-year reserve Jamal Carter will have an MRI to establish a astringency of a hamstring damage he suffered in Saturday night’s preseason opener. It doesn’t demeanour good; Klis says it appears “he’ll be down a while.” Hamstrings are notoriously wily to rehab given a possibility of re-aggravation is high.

Carter was harm in a initial half of a contest, limping off a margin following a defensive play. He was transposed during reserve by associate 2017 undrafted giveaway representative Dymonte Thomas. Both Carter and Thomas saw reps with S Su’a Cravens sitting out due to a bruise knee.

An extended deficiency would fleece Carter’s chances of creation a final roster. He already faced an ascending conflict since of abyss during a position; Darian Stewart and Justin Simmons are sealed in as starters, with Will Parks and Cravens as a approach backups.

Carter, a standout special-teamer after operative his approach onto a 53 final season, was carrying a “great camp,” according to Joseph.

“He’s a man that plays with his hair on glow each day,” he pronounced on Aug. 3. “Obviously, he’s personification some dime for us and he’s also personification some high safety, though he’s a core special teams man and he’s one of a improved guys. The Broncos have finished a good pursuit over a years of anticipating giveaway agents. We had 3 play for us final year with [S Dymonte] Thomas, [CB Marcus] Rios and Jamal [Carter] in a behind end. That’s been one of [President of Football Ops/GM] John’s [Elway] strengths. After a ‘eighth turn of a draft,’ we’ve finished good there, even this year with [OLB] Justin Holland who was an all-conference player, we got him signed, and No. 2 [RB Phillip Lindsay], we got him signed. That’s been one of John’s strengths over a year, regulating a ‘eighth round’ as his advantage.”

Aside from Carter and Cravens, Denver’s delegate was also blank maestro cornerback Tramaine Brock, who’s sidelined with a tolerably serious hamstring strain. To some surprise, they were picked detached by Vikings quarterbacks Kirk Cousins, Trevor Siemian and Kyle Sloter, a 3 mixing for 259 flitting yards and 4 touchdowns in a 42-28 victory.

The Broncos will reassemble during a UCHealth Training Center for corner practices opposite a visiting Chicago Bears, their preseason Week 2 opponent, on Tuesday and Wednesday.
