Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he’s also been checking in regularly with quarterback Tony Romo following his back surgery Dec. 27 to repair a herniated disk.
“He says he feels really good,” Garrett said. “I think anybody who has that surgery will tell you the same thing: Initially, they feel great because there’s so much pressure back there on the nerves and whatever goes into that injury. So they get immediate relief, and then they have to recover from the actual surgery itself.
“So he’s moving around and everyone’s optimistic he’ll be back and ready to go for the off-season program.”
Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Astros 6-3 loss to the White Sox on Friday.
Carter has a six game hitting streak going which has helped raise his batting average from .157 to .185. Carter owners have to understand the type of player he is and know that while he has outstanding power there will be plenty of strikeouts and a low batting average. Those hoping for a repeat performance of 2014 should be reminded that he had 13 home runs and a .184 batting average heading into July before mashing 24 home runs over the final three months of the season.
