The Cowboys were already thin at inside linebacker before the Carter injury, as Sean Lee is out for the rest of the season with a sprained toe. Dan Connor and Ernie Sims replaced Carter in the second half.
Wide receiver Miles Austin also left the game, injuring his hip in the second quarter. His status against the Eagles is unknown.
Slot receiver Kevin Ogletree missed the Washington game with a concussion, so the loss of Austin dealt another blow to the Cowboys' receiver depth. Dwayne Harris and Cole Beasley attempted to fill Austin's void in the second half.
