News: Carter (quadriceps) practiced fully in Friday's practice.
Impact: After upgrading from limited to full practice participation from Thursday to Friday, it's looking like Carter is a good bet to make his return to the starting Dallas defense against Washington on Monday. Carter and Rolando McClain have been a surprisingly effective pair when healthy, and the Dallas defense should get another boost in Week 9 if DeMarcus Lawrence (foot) is ready to play, as expected.
News: Romo (back) returned to practice Friday, ESPN Dallas reports.
Impact: Romo has been resting on Wednesdays all year, but his rest day is one day later this week since Dallas plays on Monday. In other words, his Thursday absence from practice was never a concern. Romo should earn a 'probable' designation after Saturday's practice.
