Bruce Carter Injury: '85 Percent Healthy,' Says Cowboys Rookie

All injury news in the NFL right now has to be digested with the possibility that preseason practice might not even begin for several weeks -- if then -- thanks to the lockout. But if players start taking preseason snaps sometime soon, it looks like Cowboys rookie Bruce Carter could be close to taking the field.

"The knee’s doing well," Carter recently told the Galloway and Company radio show on KESN-FM 103.3. "I’d probably say to myself that I’m about 85 percent. I will say that I am full speed, I’ve been cutting, it’s just kind of more like a mental thing more than it is physical. Just trying to get my feeling back and I feel pretty good about it. I’m ready to go."

Dallas took something of a chance drafting Carter out of North Carolina in the second round, given that he was recovering from a torn ACL. Now, it looks like their decision will pay off. Whenever they start playing again.
