IRVING, Texas-- For many rookies, their first season in the NFL is all about getting adjusted to the rigors of day-to-day life in the league, whether it's work days that often start before 7 AM and end about 10 hours later, the fact that football is now a job or other aspects of life as a rookie, year one is all one big acclimation process for rookies.
However, for second-year Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter, a second-round pick of America's Team in the 2011 NFL Draft who suffered a serious knee injury as a senior at North Carolina, that acclimation process was a bit different. He continued recovering from that injury for much of his rookie season, at least until Oct. 29, 2011 when Dallas added him to its 53-man roster after the club cut running back Tashard Choice.
All told, the ex-Tar Heel appeared in 10 games last season, seeing time at both middle linebacker and on special teams and finished the year with eight tackles. So far in 2012, he has already seen fairly exte...
BEST OF MAXIM
The year was 2008. The Cowboys had finished the previous season at 13-3 but lost the Giants in the playoffs. Nevertheless, many had the Cowboys pegged as a Super Bowl contender.
The team needed a receiver, though, given that Terry Glenn had played his final game. The other receivers were a 29-year-old Patrick Crayton and a 35-year-old Terrell Owens. Miles Austin wouldn’t break...
IRVING Mike Jenkins was on the field for eight defensive snaps Sunday in Seattle. It was the 2012 debut for the Cowboys cornerback who missed the season opener, recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.
Jenkins also played on special teams, a role he's expected to continue having Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With starting safeties Barry Church and Gerald Sensabaugh...
IRVING Jason Garrett said Wednesday that Felix Jones will continue to return kickoffs for the Cowboys.
Despite Jones fumbling the opening kickoff last Sunday in Seattle and showcasing little ability to make defenders miss, the Cowboys coach defended his primary kick returner on Wednesday.
"Felix has been such a good player for us," Garrett said. "He's coming...
The Dallas Cowboys floundered in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks leaving many fantasy owners disgruntled and even a bit confused. Dez Bryant and Jason Witten had shaky hands, the ground game was ineffective and Tony Romo wasn’t in sync all night long.
Don’t worry, fantasy owners should expect a huge turnaround in Week 3 when Dallas takes on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers...
With Felix Jones struggling to hold on to the football during the Cowboys’ loss on Sunday, head coach Jason Garrett made it clear that taking care of the football is very important.
“Line 1 in returning the football in the NFL for me is ball security,” Garrett said.
Garrett admits they’re always looking for other guys to step up and return kicks.
“Well, we’re always looking...
This guy is really upset, I mean REALLY upset, at the Cowboys. After their 27-7 loss to the Seattle Seahawks last week, this guy felt the need to express his anger at the Cowboys via YouTube.
I knew I was going to like this video by the 0:12 mark. A few updates from the Cowboys you guys need to be made aware of:
The Cowboys took a big **** on their logo above this guy’s couch,...
After their opening-game win over the Giants, the Cowboys could boast about some nice offensive and defensive statistics. One week and a poor showing later, and the Cowboys’ stats are not looking so gaudy.
Dallas fell to #11 in total offense, averaging 364.5 over two games. In 2011, the Cowboys finished the season ranked #11 with an average of 375.5 yards per game. Those numbers...
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys have had to go a long way to score their touchdowns this season.
Their four touchdown drives have averaged 78 yards, including a 95-yarder for their only score in the last game.
''You have to do a lot of things right to go 80 yards, 60 yards, whatever,'' Romo said Thursday. ''When you have...
IRVING People in both the Seattle and Dallas organizations have been informed that the vicious and illegal crackback block administered to Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee by Seahawks receiver Golden Tate will result in a 21,000 fine to Tate, sources say.
In reviewing the play from Sunday's 27-7 Seahawks win, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said to the media, "I'm sure they will...
The heroics didn't need embellishing.
When starting center Phil Costa suffered a back injury in the second quarter of the regular-season opener against the New York Giants, the Dallas Cowboys were forced into using a replacement whose arrival was so fresh he hadn't even snapped a dozen times to quarterback Tony Romo in practice.
Despite those difficult circumstances, Ryan...
Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee is ready to move on from the
flattening block he took from Seattle receiver Golden Tate, who has
apparently been fined by the NFL.
Each time they head to the practice field, Dallas Cowboys players pass motivational messages posted outside the locker room.
One poster stresses three characteristics that head coach Jason Garrett wants to see from his squad: Passion, emotion and enthusiasm.
Garrett should consider adding a fourth word to the list.
Dallas continues to display none heading into Sunday...
