The agency representing cornerback Tony Carter — who was released by the Patriots earlier this week for reportedly failing his physical — said Carter is healthy and was cut before he even left his home in Florida for training camp.

The tweet read as follows:

Tony was informed of his impending release by the New England Patriots head coach PRIOR to his departure for camp

TONY WAS INFORMED OF HIS RELEASE PRIOR TO DEPARTING FOR TRAINING CAMP, HE DID NOT REPORT TO THE FACILITY AND AT NO TIME WAS EXAMINED FOR AN ENTRANCE PHYSICAL.

Tony took the call about his release as he was packing to report for camp for an on time departure from his apartment in Orlando, Florida where he spent this off-season training.

Tony was, and continues to be 100% healthy.

Tony is still thankful for his time with the Patriots football club, and looks forward to the next steps of his career.

The 25-year-old defensive back joined New England’s practice squad last September and was promoted to the 53-man roster for the last three games of the 2010 season.
