Broncos coach John Fox told reporters at the Combine that SS Quinton Carter's recovery from knee surgery is "going fantastic."
"His rehab's going great," Fox emphasized. When Carter was placed on I.R. late last September, it was feared he'd require microfracture surgery on his right knee. An August scope hadn't fixed the joint. Carter will be back to compete for playing time in Denver, but this is a position the Broncos can upgrade.
