Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr underwent surgery on his broken hand Monday, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Carr needed the surgery to fix a broken bone in his hand, but he is expected to be ready for the regular season. "I take a lot of pride in being able to fight through whatever is going on to suit up on Sunday," he said. "At the same time, I've been blessed. It's not all me. It's really not me at all. I've just been blessed to play through certain injuries and stay away from the major ones."
Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr broke a bone in his right hand during Thursday's practice, according to the Dallas Morning News. Carr will have surgery to repair the fracture on Monday, and his timetable for a return is still unknown. "He's going to be out for a little bit here,'' head coach Jason Garrett said. "We don't think it's serious. It's a similar injury to what DeMarco Murray had last year when he played in the game, four or five days later. "The biggest thing with this is getting the surgery done correctly, which we're confident is going to happen, and then handling the incision and see what he's capable of doing.''
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Wednesday that while defensive back Brandon Carr will be on the roster in 2015, the team is working to lower his cap number for the upcoming season, reports The Dallas Morning News.

With Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr set to count $12.7 million against the salary cap during the 2015 season, owner Jerry Jones said the team would like to restructure Carr's contract, reports the Star-Telegram. "That one is as it is, we're evaluating, looking to the extent that we can make contractual adjustments that would fit and help us under the cap, we want to try to do that with him," Jones said. "We value Carr and what he can mean for us this year." Carr has refused to discuss his contract status publicly and Jones said restructuring the deal remains a priority. "All of the contracts that we don't have closure on are a priority," Jones said. "He certainly is a player who is in our top consideration. So yeah, I'd say that's a priority. We want him on the football field."
Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr would not comment on whether the team has asked him to take a pay cut or not, reports The Dallas Morning News. "Some things I don't discuss out in public," Carr said. "This is one of those." Carr will count $12.7 million against the cap during the 2015 season if he does not restructure his contract and he declined to say if he'd be willing to lessen the amount. "I'm still here,'' he said. "I'm here until told otherwise. That's my philosophy. At the end of the day, if I'm playing football then I'm going to give my all for whoever I'm playing for."
