Cowboys LB Carter out for year with elbow injury
IRVING, Texas (AP) Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter is out of for the season with a dislocated left elbow, making him the fourth Dallas defensive starter to go on injured reserve.
Carter injured the elbow in Thursday's 38-31 loss to Washington. The Cowboys have lost both inside linebackers with defensive leader Sean Lee suffering a season-ending toe injury last month.
The Cowboys said Monday they filled Carter's roster spot by signing Brady Poppinga, a seven-year veteran who last played for St. Louis in 2011.
