The Broncos on Monday released running back Justin Fargas and designated cornerback Tony Carter as waived/injured.
Fargas signed with the team as a free agent on Aug. 11, and in two preseason games he tallied 10 carries for 17 yards.
The USC product spent the first seven seasons of his career in Oakland, where he amassed 3,369 yards rushing with 10 touchdowns. In 2007 he carried the ball 222 times for 1,009 yards and four scores.
Last year, Carter signed as a college free agent on Apr. 27. He became one of three college free agents to spend time on the active roster, making his debut against Oakland on Dec. 20 and registering one solo tackle, one pass breakup, one special-teams stop and one fumble recovery in that contest.
Carter notched his first career start the next week against Philadelphia and he had one special-teams tackle in the game. He spent the first 14 weeks of the 2009 season on the practice squad.
At Florida State Carter started the last 33 games of a collegiate career in which he appeared in all 50 contests. As a senior in 2008 he garnered second-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors.
