Raiders DE Andre Carter is inactive

9/30/2012

Defensive end Andre Carter will not make his Oakland Raiders’ debut Sunday at Denver.

Carter is among the inactive players for the game. It's not a total shock. He signed with the team on Wednesday and hasn’t played since suffering a serious quadriceps injury last December while with New England.

I expect Carter should be ready to play Oct. 14 at Atlanta when the Raiders return from their bye week. Carter is expected be a rotational pass-rusher. The Raiders could use him as they have three sacks in three games.
