OXNARD, CA (AP) – Bruce Carter’s rookie year with the Dallas Cowboys was more like a redshirt season.

That is what the Cowboys expected when they used their 2011 second-round draft pick on the linebacker coming off a knee injury. He played the last 10 games, primarily on special teams.

Carter says those games allowed him to get a chance to get used to the speed of the NFL.

Coach Jason Garrett says Carter showed flashes last season, had a big offseason and is now ready to compete for a starting job at inside linebacker. He is competing with Dan Connor to start opposite Sean Lee.
