Tony Carter practices*, doesn’t have concussion


Broncos defensive back Tony Carter emerged from the AFC title game with an apparent concussion.  But he doesn’t have a concussion, based on the team’s first bye-week injury report.

While the Broncos didn’t practice on Wednesday, they estimated that Carter would have fully participated with a shoulder injury.  The report makes no mention of a concussion.

Also fully participating in a practice that didn’t happen were tight end Joel Dreessen (knee), tackle Terrance Knighton (knee), guard Chris Kuper (ankle), quarterback Peyton Manning (ankle), and cornerback Kayvon Webster (thumb).

Running back Knowshon Moreno would have been limited in practice, if there had been a practice, with injured ribs.  Also, defensive tackle Mitch Unrein wouldn’t have practiced (if there had been practice), due to a knee injury.
