He provided Delhomme with his only deep threat but pass protection limited most of the deep pass attempts.

He also rushed for 11 yards on an end around play.
2006 Week 2 vs MIN (9 / 4 / 34 / 0 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)

2006 Week 3 vs TB (2 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)

Carter scored the second touchdown of the game for Carolina on a short pass of four yards from QB Jake Delhomme early in the fourth quarter. Carter crossed routes with WR Keyshawn Johnson and was wide open in the corner of the end zone for the score.

2006 Week 6 vs BAL (5 / 4 / 65 / 1 rec)
Carter showed excellent separation down the left side of the field on his 42 yard touchdown catch, and made a very nice catch on third down late in the fourth quarter to seal the game for the Panthers.

2006 Week 14 vs NYG (12 / 8 / 144 / 1 rec)
Carter was targeted on a fly pattern down the left sideline on the first Carolina possession. QB Chris Weinke dropped a perfect pass in on the play but Carter couldn't pull in the lunging attempt. He made his first reception at the start of the second quarter and followed that up with a 36 yard touchdown three plays later. Carter beat his cornerback down the right sideline and Weinke dropped in a strike for the score. There was contact on the play, but Carter did a good job of securing the pass while falling into the end zone. He pulled in a similar pass two drives later on a 38 yard gain fighting with the defensive back all the way down the field, but this time he had to lay out to make the reception. Carter limped to the sideline after making the grab. He returned to the game and made three more catches during fourth quarter garbage time.
2006 Week 15 vs PIT (1 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)
Carter had his best career game last week with eight receptions for 144 yards and a touchdown. He was targeted only once in this game and had a 15 yard grab before injuring his ankle. He did not return.
2005 Week 15 vs NO (4 / 2 / 48 / 0 rec)
Carter saw the first action of his career and may have given the Panthers' the number two receiver they need to compliment Steve Smith. He made his first career reception something to remember converting a third down play for a huge 40 yard gain that helped set up a touchdown. There appeared to be some question as to whether he held on to the pass but Carolina quickly ran another play to avoid a challenge by New Orleans. Carter had two catches for 48 yards in his debut. With Rod Garner cut earlier this week and disappointment from Colbert throughout the season, Carter may get his first career start next week.
2005 Week 16 vs DAL (11 / 3 / 55 / 1 rec)
Carter benefited most from Dallas' double coverage on Steve Smith (and Smith's ejection at the end of the third quarter.) He had a team high ten targets, though he managed to catch only three balls, including a 32 yard touchdown pass in the first quarter. This was only his second active game in the NFL.
2005 Week 17 vs ATL (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Carter was thrown towards once in the first quarter by QB Jake Delhomme on a deep route of 39 yards. The pass fell incomplete, but Carter was able to draw the pass interference call.
