Cowboys cut Tashard Choice to make room for Bruce Carter

DeMarco Murray’s emergence last week when he rushed for a Dallas Cowboys-record 253 yards made the decision easy today.

Running back Tashard Choice has been placed on waivers, creating a roster space for linebacker Bruce Carter, the rookie second-round draft pick from North Carolina. Carter is a talented player who likely would have been a first-round draft pick had it not been for a torn ACL. He has been on the physically unable to perform list.

Choice actually started last week against the St. Louis Rams but he carried just two times before Murray, also a rookie, erupted. Starting running back Felix Jones remains sidelined with a high ankle sprain.
