Cowboys linebacker Bobby Carpenter has a slight tear in his right quadriceps tendon. Carpenter, who did not practice Wednesday, had an MRI on Monday which revealed the tear.
Carpenter said he doesn't expect to be 100 percent this year. He said he suffered the injury in the final preseason game at Minnesota. If he fully tears the tendon he would be lost for the year.
``Hopefully it's something I will be able to play through,'' Carpenter said.
