07:00 PM ET 11.24 | The Dallas Cowboys appear to have lost a key piece of their defense for the rest of the season. Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas writes linebacker Bruce Carter dislocated his elbow during Thursday's loss to the Washington Redskins. Watkins writes Cowboys team officials believe Carter will need surgery next week to repair the injury. Carter was injured in the fourth quarter while making a tackle. He immediately went to the locker room and didn't return to the game. The Cowboys are already down linebacker Sean Lee, which means back ups Dan Connor and Ernie Simswill start as inside linebackers moving forward.

Doesn't really matter at this stage in the season.

Last two teams standing go to the Superbowl. It's all about the injuries.

Dallas is tied for second, only a game and a half behind the Giants. It's not too late!

QUOTE(#4):

might as well miss the rest of the season, the other half of the roster is/has

If you add up all of the "half" games they've played...I'd say that's a pretty accurate assessment.

Dallas is snakebit at the LB spots this season.

Unfortunate.

Although it is nice to see FSU-alum Sims playing well, finally.
