Detroit Lions have promoted CB Alex Carter in preparation for the Monday Night Game against the Cowboys. Carter was a third round pick in the 2015 out of Stanford. He sat out all of 2015 with an ankle injury. He was completely lost during camp and the preseason. Carter has size and leaping ability but lacks speed and ball skills.
Carter will back up the starters Johnson Bademosi and Nevin Lawson. Asa Jackson will be in the slot. Look for a good dose of the three safety look from Teryl Austin.
Here is a tribute:
|Carter 4 tackles in the preseason|
|40 games 34 starts|
146 tackles 2 int at Stanford
Combine: 6000 196 4.51 17 40 1001 7.05 4.07
Lions cut Corey Lemonier to make room for Carter.
