Raiders DE Andre Carter is inactive

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.
