    Cowboys CB Brandon Carr undergoes surgery on hand

    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 CB Brandon Carr breaks bone in hand

    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 still looking to restructure Brandon Carr's contract

    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' Jerry Jones on Carr's contract: 'That's a lot of money'

    Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr is a candidate for release this offseason with a contract that's scheduled to take up $12.7 million of cap space, the Dallas Morning News reports. "Carr played well this year and I'm not as critical of Carr as others," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. "But that's a lot of money. One thing that we just got to do is we've got to make sure that every way we can, we get the value for the money." Carr has restructed his contract in the past, but it's unlikely the team will welcome another restructure this offseason. While Carr would cost nearly as much in dead cap space if released as he would to be retained, the Cowboys can reduce his 2015 cap impact to $4.717 million if he's designated as a post-June 1 release, saving exactly $8 million from the cornerback's 2015 salary if retained.
