As the Cowboys return from their bye without MLB Sean Lee, OLB Bruce Carter has taken over play-calling duties on the defense.  That only makes him a better bet to stay on the field in all situations, which Carter did in playing all 84 defensive snaps in the loss to the Saints.  Regardless of whether Carter improves his assignment/performance issues, his athleticism and role will give him tremendous IDP upside every week.  Below-average LB Ernie Sims steps in for Lee in the middle, with Justin Durant also hurt.  Carter's worth another shot in most IDP leagues.

Cowboys LB Bruce Carter spent the 2nd half of Sunday's loss to the Chargers on the sideline and said afterward that coaches pulled him.  According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, HC Jason Garrett "intimated" that Carter had gotten hurt, while DC Monte Kiffin called it part of the plan to get Ernie Sims into the game.  Carter simply said it was the coaches' decision and took the blame for allowing Chargers RB Danny Woodhead 2 TD catches early in the game.  We'll see how this situation impacts Carter's playing time going forward.  He'll certainly slide down our Rest of the Way rankings on Tuesday, though.

The Cowboys will place ILB Bruce Carter on IR because of the dislocated left elbow he suffered Thanksgiving Day against Washington. He will have surgery on the elbow this week. Ernie Sims figures to take over Carter's starting job from here but isn't an exciting IDP. Dan Connor would be a better option, but the Cowboys have yet to ply him as a full-timer. The team also signed veteran free agent Brady Poppinga to add depth.
