The Dallas Cowboys defense has been horrible this year. I cannot say it was too bad, because they have been decimated by injuries. Well this week they are going to get a huge boost from linebacker Bruce Carter. He feels he will be ready to play this week.
“I’ll be fine,” said Carter, who did not play last week against the Green Bay Packers because of a hamstring issue. “Really got to run a lot, explode a little bit, come out of some cuts and whatnot, so everything felt good.”
The Cowboys need Carter more than ever before. With Sean Lee expected to miss his second straight game with a neck injury, Ernie Sims battling a groin injury and Justin Durant on injured reserve, Carter will be the most experienced linebacker.
“My job is to try to lead the defense to a victory and just play as good as we can, when things get out of hand try to get everybody to calm down and just try to get back to our game plan and play sound,” Carter said. “I’m up for the challenge. I know what’s ahead of me and we just got to go out there and execute.”
