– The two promising athletes on the inside of the Cowboys’ defense should be able to return from injury in time to participate in the offseason programs.
Of the various defensive losses this year, none surpassed those of Sean Lee
and Bruce Carter
in importance or significance.
Lee, who required season-ending toe surgery after starting only six games, and Carter, who dislocated his elbow in the first matchup against Washington on Thanksgiving Day, are both making progress in their recoveries and are on pace to return in the expected timeframe.
Carter also said he should return before any offseason preparation begins. When Lee went down, Carter’s responsibilities on defense skyrocketed. He became the linebacker communicating the defensive signals and held that duty until he got injured five weeks later after gathering nine combined tackles against the Redskins.
“My elbow’s good,” Carter said. “I actually start doing band work and work on strengthening it this week coming up, so I’m progressing pretty well.”
