Bruce Carter (quad) is not practicing for the Cowboys Wednesday.

An MRI on Carter's leg revealed a quad strain and he is being considered week-to-week as opposed to day-to-day. It is very likely that he misses Week 5 against Houston.

Rolando McClain is practicing Wednesday.

McClain had been dealing with a groin injury but managed to make it back into the lineup Sunday. He recorded just two tackles but he was credited with a forced fumble. He should be fine for Week 5.

 Tony Romo will not practice Wednesday.

The Cowboys are still trying to find a steady practice routine for Romo as they do want to give him time off to continue resting his back. Wednesday seems like a good day to take off, save for weeks where Dallas is playing a Thursday game, so expect to see him miss Wednesdays for the foreseeable future.

Anthony Spencer said his explosiveness is coming back. He is looking at 25-30 snaps vs. Houston on Sunday.

The Cowboys could use Spencer's pass rushing ability which will come as he gets healthier. Spencer registered three tackles in his season debut against the Saints on Sunday after missing all but one game in 2013.

Bruce Carter has been told by doctors he'll need 10-days to heel his quad. 

That means Carter will definitely be out for this weeks match up vs the Texans.

Cowboys signed G Rishaw Johnson to the practice squad on Tuesday.

Johnson will be tested early and often at practice as the Cowboys look to improve their depth on the offensive line. No fantasy value here though.

Cowboys released G Ronald Patrick from the practice squad.

Patrick juts wasn't cutting it and the Cowboys are looking for players who are much closer to being NFL ready right now.

Bruce Carter's status with his strained quad is week to week, according to owner Jerry Jones.

While we'd rather not take the word of Jones on a player injury, the week-to-week designation tends to mean that Carter won't be available for Week 5 against Houston. An MRI on Monday confirmed that he suffered a quadriceps strain during Sunday night's game against the Saints and the recovery time could be more than just a couple of weeks. Kyle Wilbur will fill in on the strong side while Carter is on the shelf.

Josh Brent will be able to travel to London when the Cowboys play the Jaguars and practice for the first time but not play.

That is still weeks away as the Cowboys don't face the Jaguars till week 10 of the regular season. The Cowboys then have a bye for week 11 so Brent has a chance to return during week 12.

Cowboys S Jakar Hamilton returns from his 4-game suspension Monday. He will be eligible to play Sunday vs. Houston.

Barry Church has been working as the starting free safety so far, but depending on how Hamilton looks at practice, he could be replaced. They may start to wean Hamilton in even if he doesn't bump Church down the depth chart immediately, so keep an eye on the situation.
