Devastating Loss: Andre Carter Out For The Season

The New England Patriots announced that defensive end Andre Carter has been placed on injured reserve with a leg injury.

Carter was carted off the field during Sunday’s 41-23 win over the Denver Broncos. After the game, reports emerged that Carter would need surgery for a quadriceps-related injury.

Signed to a one-year, $2.25 million contract that included an additional $750,000 in incentives, the 32-year-old Carter started all 14 games before his injury, totaling 52 tackles and a team-high 10 quarterback sacks. The Patriots have not yet filled Carter’s roster spot, but did sign rookie defensive lineman Cedric McKinley to the practice squad.
