Michael Carter, RB (NYJ)

Placed on IR

The Jets placed Carter (ankle) on injured reserve Saturday, ruling him out for Weeks 12-14, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Coach Robert Saleh already hinted at a multi-game absence, and Adam Schefter of ESPN reported the rookie likely would be out 2-3 weeks with a low-grade high ankle sprain. It's now confirmed as a minimum of three missed games, with Carter next eligible to play Week 15 against Miami. The Jets are left with Ty Johnson, Tevin Coleman and La'Mical Perine in their backfield, with at least the first two expected to get work in the Week 12 game against Houston on Sunday.
