You realize that carter only missed two starts in his 4 year college career due to an injury the knee injury to end his senior season and it was late (game 10) which is why he was injured and on the PUP in Dallas after being drafted.
He had no history of being injury prone made up by uninformed people.
Church was injury prone win in college or at Dallas the last two years.
The only player to be injured was Lee and even still played last year with a club on his hand.
Lee has been perpetually injured in Dallas. It's obvious why such a talented player fell to the 40s in the draft. He was injured in college and has suffered signifcant injuries every single year since he came to Dallas. He's the poster boy for being injury prone.
On Carter, major injury in college, misses most of rookie season, season ending injury in 2nd season. He's making a good case for being one of those fragile guys. 2 strikes may not put him in Sean Lee territory, but he's on that road.
Regardless, the Cowboys are significantly dependent on Murray, Ratliff, Lee, etc and all those guys have a history of being hurt. Genes, bad luck, whatever you want to blame it on, the fact is the games are still going and those guys either aren't on the field, or are playing at way less than 100%.
