Miami placed Carter (concussion) on its injured reserve list Saturday, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Carter has not played this season since suffering a concussion in the Dolphins' season opener versus New England. Now he'll have to miss at least the team's next four games as he works his way back onto the field.

Carter (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Jets, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Carter will miss a fourth straight game due to a concussion. His next chance to suit up will come in Week 6 against the Vikings, but due to his prolonged absence, the Dolphins will presumably be cautious with the reserve tight end even when he's cleared for practice.

Carter (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Carter has missed three straight games due to a concussion and remains in protocols ahead of Week 5. He'll have two more opportunities to practice before the team needs to make a decision on his status for Sunday's matchup against the Jets, but given his prolonged absence, the Dolphins will likely be cautious before thrusting him back into game action.

Carter (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's game in Cincinnati, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Carter will miss a third straight contest as he works his way through the concussion protocol. Hunter Long (ankle) also appears in danger of missing Week 3, so Tanner Conner could get another chance to handle the No. 3 gig behind Mike Gesicki and Adam Shaheen.

Carter (concussion) is listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice estimation, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports.
Analysis: Carter has missed the last two games due to his concussion, and his status on Monday's practice estimation isn't encouraging. If he hopes to play Thursday against Cincinnati, he'll likely need to return to the practice field in some capacity over the next few days.
Sep 26, 2022 1:45 PM EST
Carter (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports.
Analysis: Carter will miss a second straight game after suffering a concussion during the season opener. Hunter Long (ankle) also remains out, so Tanner Conner will continue to operate as the backup behind Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe.
Sep 23, 2022 12:47 PM EST
Carter (concussion) was not present at the open portion of Miami's practice Wednesday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Carter suffered a concussion during a kickoff in Week 1 and has been sidelined since. Regardless of whether he'll be available for Sunday's game versus Buffalo, the Dolphins seem content to just use a combination of blocker Durham Smythe and route-runner Mike Gesicki at tight end.
Sep 21, 2022 10:24 AM EST
Carter (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Ravens, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Carter suffered a concussion during a kickoff in Week 1 and will be sidelined for at least one additional contest. He garnered a small role (five total snaps) in the season opener, so his absence shouldn't impact much.
Sep 16, 2022 1:41 PM EST
Miami coach Mike McDaniel said Monday that Carter is in concussion protocol, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Carter went down after suffering a scary head injury on a kickoff during the Dolphins' season-opening win over the Patriots on Sunday. The fifth-year tight end, who played 265 of his 312 total snaps on special teams in 2021, will now look to pass through the NFL's concussion protocols heading into the team's Week 2 matchup against the Ravens on Sept. 18.
Sep 12, 2022 2:31 PM EST
Carter (head) was ruled out for the remainder of the Dolphins' game against the Patriots on Sunday.
Analysis: Carter was able to walk off the field under his own power after being tended to on the field with a head injury by Miami's training staff Sunday, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. While the exact nature and severity of this issue are still unclear, the core special teamer's next opportunity to play will come on Sept. 18 against the Ravens.
Sep 11, 2022 11:14 AM EST
Carter (undisclosed) was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.
Analysis: Carter missed Monday's contest against the Saints, but he is expected to return in Week 17 against the Titans. However, the 26-year-old tight end's presence is expected to change much, as he hasn't played more than four offensive snaps since the first two weeks of the season.
Dec 29, 2021 1:56 PM EST
Carter (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.
Analysis: If Carter's unable to clear COVID-19 protocols before Monday's game against the Saints, his absence is unlikely to have much of an effect on Miami's offense since he sits fourth on the tight end depth chart. It's not clear at this time whether he tested positive for the virus.
Dec 23, 2021 3:21 PM EST
Carter (leg) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Carter suffered a leg injury in the preseason opener but will be ready to go for Week 1. The 26-year-old is poised to work as a depth tight end for Miami.
Sep 8, 2021 6:55 PM EST
Carter suffered a leg injury in the 20-13 loss against the Bears on Saturday, David Furones of the Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: While blocking Carter had the action on the run roll into his left leg causing him leave the game. The good news is that the 25-year-old was seen walking under his own power on the sideline. The fourth-year tight end spent last year in Cincinnati where he played in 15 games, amassing five catches for 53 yards. If Carter is forced to miss significant time with the injury, then his chances of making the roster are likely limited.
Aug 14, 2021 3:23 PM EST
Carter (undisclosed) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.
Analysis: Carter has been away from the team since landing on the COVID list over the weekend, but he can retake the field for Miami after clearing the health and safety protocols. The 25-year-old caught five passes for 53 yards in 15 games for the Bengals in 2020 and inked a three-year, $7.8 million deal with the Dolphins this offseason.
Aug 5, 2021 2:49 PM EST
Carter was placed on the COVID-19 list Sunday.
Analysis: Carter, Mike Gesicki and Adam Shaheen all landed on the COVID-19 list as apparent close contacts after co-offensive coordinator and tight ends coach George Godsey tested positive for the virus, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Carter signed a three-year deal with the Dolphins in March after he totaled just 66 yards and a touchdown while serving primarily as a blocker in Cincinnati.
Aug 1, 2021 5:42 PM EST
Carter signed a three-year deal with the Dolphins on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Carter spent the first four seasons of his career in Cincinnati, though he missed all of 2018 with an arm injury. Though he's appeared in at least 15 games in his three other campaigns, Carter has commanded only 11 career targets. Instead, his primary value comes as a blocker, and he'll now work behind the likes of Mike Gesicki, Durham Smythe and Adam Shaheen in Miami.
Mar 15, 2021 5:46 PM EST
Carter had one of his five catches on the season in the Bengals' season-ending loss to the Ravens.
Analysis: Carter had a mere seven targets on his 220 offensive snaps for the season, illustrating how much the Bengals view him as a blocker. That's unlikely to change no matter what the teams does at the position over the offseason.
Jan 13, 2021 11:43 PM EST
Carter played 14 offensive snaps and didn't receive a target in Sunday's 19-7 loss to the Dolphins.
Analysis: Carter maintains around a 25 percent target share on a weekly basis. However, he's rarely used outside of a blocking role, as he's recorded just four receptions for 32 yards through 11 games.
Dec 8, 2020 1:01 PM EST
Carter (shoulder) was a full go at Thursday's practice, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Carter currently sits second on the Bengals' tight end depth chart behind starter Drew Sample. The former only has two catches for 25 yards on the season.
