For the first time since being drafted in April, Cowboys’ second round pick Bruce Carter is among the Dallas linebackers in practice today, reports Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News. All-Pro DeMarcus Ware is not.
While Carter made his practice debut Wednesday after spending the first six weeks of his rookie season on the non-football injury list--he was rehabbing a torn ACL suffered in his final season at North Carolina--Ware was sidelined, at least from the portion of practice open to the media, with a back issue.
Ware, who was forced to leave the game against the New England Patriots last week with back spasms, was one of four players to miss practice. The others were Felix Jones (ankle), Jason Hatcher (calf) and Derrick Dockery (knee). None of these three are expected to play against St. Louis in week seven.
Meanwhile, new additions to the team, guards Montrae Holland and Daniel Loper, were practicing with the team today. Holland reclaimed his old no. 64 jersey, while Loper was seen donning Leonard Davis’s old no. 70.
