As we discussed on Monday, Dallas Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter was in the midst of enjoying a bit of a career revival in the past two games before he pulled up lame with a strained quadriceps chasing down Saints running back Khiry Robinson in Sunday night's convincing Cowboys win over the Saints.
After the game, Carter's leg began swelling up, giving the Cowboys a big scare considering Rolando McClain's injury problem and the fact Sean Lee won't play a down this year.
On Tuesday evening, it was announced that Carter will be out 10-14 days with the injury, meaning he'll definitely miss Sunday's game against Houston and will be questionable for next week's game against the Seattle Seahawks.
"Just rehab basically. I've just got to keep doing my rehab and I should be fine. ...," Carter told ESPN Dallas. "Hopefully it goes a lot faster than that. I want to get back out there."
The injury puts even more pressure on Justin Durant, who has played well, and McClain to remain healthy after returning to action against the Saints.
