01:56 PM ET 03.26 | Since being taken in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, running back Delone Carter hasn't had many opportunities to get things done in the big leagues. He didn't get that much playing time in his rookie season, as the Colts were a team in transition and turmoil. In 2012, he was limited by multiple injuries, but Carter isn't letting it get him down. Carter says that he wants to remain healthy so he doesn't "get lost in the shuffle." Here, the shuffle refers to the running back group that includes both Donald Brown and Vick Ballard. The team invested a lot in Brown, making him a first-round pick in 2009. Since then, he's under-performed however, with 417 yards and just one touchdown in 2012. Carter still has promising talent, and his first step will be establishing himself as the primary backup. He said that he wants to "be more patient this season and be ready to seize the opportunity."
