Denver Broncos: Jamal Carter Could Miss Time, Other Injuries
By Tylor Walden
While the Denver Broncos did escape their preseason matchup with the Minnesota Vikings nearly unharmed, the team does have some injuries to address.
The first preseason game of 2018 is in the books for the Denver Broncos. The team escaped with very little scratches. However, it is nearly impossible these days to not leave a game completely healthy. Unfortunately, the Denver Broncos needed to address some injuries once the clocks reached triple zeros.
The biggest injury was to safety Jamal Carter. The second year player suffered a hamstring injury. He got an MRI on the injury, but as of this writing it is unclear what the extent of the damage is. But according to Mike Klis, it could keep him out of action for quite some time.
Jamal Carter did tweet out earlier today in hopes that the worst will not be coming his way.

If the hamstring does keep him out for an extended period of time, the Broncos should be okay with their depth at the safety position. Here is to hoping that he has a speedy recovery.
Two other players that popped up on the post game injury report are cornerback Marcus Rios (hip) and tight end Austin Traylor (shoulder). It is unclear how serious these injuries are. Zac Stevens was told by Traylor that his shoulder is fine and he should be okay.
This is a good sign since the team was without tight ends Troy Fumagalli and Jeff Heuerman during the game on Saturday. It would not look good being down three tight ends.
Broncos Country likely will not hear the results of these injuries until practice this upcoming week. There are also the ones who did not play at all Saturday due to injury. Hopefully, we will see some improvement from them this week. Wishing all these players a speedy recovery.
