Rolando McClain expected to start at MLB for Dallas


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) The Cowboys appear to be leaning toward using twice-retired linebacker Rolando McClain as their starting middle linebacker in the absence of Sean Lee, who will miss the 2014 season with a torn ACL in his left knee.

The Cowboys are also moving Bruce Carter from weakside to strongside, and Justin Durant will take over as the starting weakside linebacker.

"I think he’s made a lot of progress," head coach Jason Garrett said of McClain, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "Whenever you’re a new player coming into a system, you need to just play in the system. You need to get reps. That’s particularly the case with a position like linebacker where there’s a lot to do in terms of communication and understanding what the whole defense is doing.

"He has a lot of those traits. Coming in, it was a matter of learning what we were asking him to do. He embraced that, and I think he’s going to be a part of that mix at linebacker. He’s demonstrated both in practice and in preseason games that he’s worthy of some kind of an opportunity."


Cowboys concerned about hamstring injuries


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2014) Twelve Cowboys suffered hamstring injuries of varying severity in 2013, reports ESPN.com. The list consisted of Miles Austin, Morris Claiborne, Sean Lee, Justin Durant, Dwayne Harris, Bruce Carter, Danny McCray, Barry Church, Dez Bryant, Lance Dunbar, Gavin Escobar and Terrance Williams.

Coach Jason Garrett is looking at other teams' approaches to find a solution. He might cut back the time players spend on the field early in the offseason, the report said. 

“It is valuable to do the football stuff. We don’t feel like there’s a lot of football stuff right now,” Garrett told the website. “We want to be careful about how much we take away from that. But there’s a couple weeks prior to all that stuff starting. We’ve talked about tweaking the daily schedule and what we’re doing those first couple weeks as we start to lay the foundation for the offseason.”


Jerry Jones: Bruce Carter still can be 'outstanding'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2014) Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter, who's entering the final year of his rookie deal, did not make a huge impact last season. He "seemed to lose his confidence at times and struggled in pass coverage more than the Cowboys ever thought he would," reports the Dallas Morning News.

Owner Jerry Jones still thinks Carter can be an outstanding player.

“He’s working at it, though. We saw things, there’s an old adage, if you’ve seen him do it a few times, you know they can do it at least and you go from there,” Jones told the paper. “We know he can do what this defense calls for and be outstanding. We have some real reasons to be excited about him and certainly he’d be the first to say that he had some things that he’d like to take back.

“Overall, he’s got a future here … and that’s a positive. It’s not a condition, he’s going to become more of a pro and more understanding about the kind of commitment and the kind of detail and preparation it takes and he’ll be a lot better for it," Jones added. "He’s got the other stuff that nobody can coach, and that is speed and physical assets.”

Carter had 96 tackles, three passes defensed and two sacks in 15 games last year.

Cowboys make change at weakside linebacker


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2013) Cowboys linebacker Ernie Sims said he will start at weakside linebacker Week 5 vs. Denver, replacing Bruce Carter in the starting lineup, according to The Dallas Morning News.

"For right now, they have got me splitting reps with Bruce," Sims said. "The way I see it right now I am a starter. I feel like I will play the whole game and do good at it."

Carter struggled against the pass in Week 4 at San Diego as eight of the nine passes thrown in his vicinity were completed for 94 yards, according to ProFootballFocus.com.

"I definitely want to play," Carter said. "I don’t take nothing away from [Sims]. Ernie is my guy. I love him like a brother. I want to go out there just as much as he does, but if they feel like, I don’t know, it’s out of my hands, I’ll say that."
