New York Jets rookie running back Michael Carter is now sidelined for 2-3 weeks. Carter suffered a low-grade high ankle sprain in Week 11’s contest against the Miami Dolphins. He might avoid a stint on the injured reserve, but he could miss up to three weeks, which would make him eligible for an IR stint.
