WR Carter on the mend

"It's definitely going faster than I thought. My trainers and my doctors are really happy about it." - Tim Carter on his recovery from a torn right Achilles tendon

According to the Star-Ledger, WR Tim Carter is recovery faster than expected.

The 2002 second round draft pick out of Auburn tore his right Achilles tendon at Minnesota and missed the remainder of his rookie season.

Carter is walking without any hint of discomfort at this time and is contining rehabilitation at Giants stadium with a steady diet of lower-body weightlifting, stair-stepping and walking at a fast pace on a treadmill.

The trainers have not yet cleared him for running, and he expects to be fully ready for the season start.

Carter finished 2002 with two receptions for 37 yards, three rushes for 28 yards and five kickoff returns for 78 yards in five games.
