Bruce Carter could miss time with quad strain

Dallas Cowboys outside linebacker Bruce Carter could miss some time after straining his quadricep against New Orleans, owner Jerry Jones said on his weekly radio show on KRLD-FM.

Via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Jones said the injury is "week-to-week" with Carter potentially missing Sunday's game against the Texans. However, it's not deemed a long-term injury, which is somewhat good news for a Cowboys defense that is playing much better than people expected.

"These injuries, quad strains, are not long-term injuries," Jones said. "But you say, ‘Well, missing a game is getting pretty long term when you don’t have but 16 of them,’ but still we’ll have to see with him. If he’s moving pretty good…. I think Carter is a good healer, and some people heal faster than others. So we’ll want to keep a close eye on him.”
