Cowboys | Bruce Carter back in as starter

Fri, 11 Oct 2013 13:20:05 -0700

Dallas Cowboys LB Bruce Carter is back in the starting lineup entering Week 6 after being benched last week. Carter will start in the regular defense and in nickel packages against the Washington Redskins. LB Ernie Sims was promoted in an effort to teach Carter a lesson for his poor play. Sims will likely start at strongside linebacker in place of LB Justin Durant (groin). The transition to a 4-3 defense under coordinator Monte Kiffin has been a slow process for Carter.

Cowboys | Bruce Carter struggling

Tue, 01 Oct 2013 13:34:24 -0700

Dallas Cowboys LB Bruce Carter had big problems covering his opponents in the team's Week 4 loss to the San Diego Chargers, in which the team allowed QB Philip Rivers to throw for over 400 yards. LB Ernie Sims saw more time at the expense of Carter. "We wanted to give Ernie Sims some chances to come play, particularly in that nickel package, so a combination of those two things. Bruce was also dealing with a little bit of a foot injury in the second part of that game," head coach Jason Garrett said. "So we mixed those two guys in, gave Ernie some chances, and we've just got to get better there. Bruce has been a good cover linebacker for us, and he'll be a good cover linebacker for us again." Sims may remain in nickel packages over Carter starting in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos.

Cowboys | Bruce Carter nursing foot injury

Mon, 30 Sep 2013 20:00:14 -0700

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said LB Bruce Carter (foot) was dealing with a foot problem in the second half of the Week 4 game against the San Diego Chargers, but the coach also criticized Carter after RB Danny Woodhead burned Carter for two scores. "Bruce had some problems covering their guys," Garrett said Monday, Sept. 30. "He didn't cover them well, and there (are) some other things going on in our other coverage that he didn't do quite enough of a good job on." Carter was apparently benched in the second half, playing just 48 snaps in Week 4, with LB Ernie Sims playing 27 snaps.
