Brandon Carr Arrives at Training Camp After Personal Loss

Brandon Carr arrived in Oxnard, California for training camp for the first time on Friday. And Saturday was the first kind of practice for Carr since minicamp in June. Carr has been out due to the health of his mother, and her passing last week.

Although Carr was going through a rough time, he said at least one teammate texted or called him every day. Knowing people have your back and that they truly care for you during a time like that is extremely important. It can’t take away the pain you’re going through, but you know you have people to talk to about it, which means a lot.

Carr also talked about the loss of his mom and what he’s learned from it.

“It’s been extremely tough, man,” Carr said. “Somebody that you’ve known your whole life that’s raised you, that’s made you a product of their environment. To see them fight the way they fought in the end and still be selfless, I’ve learned a lot from the situation about myself and just about life. Hopefully, I can use some of those things I’ve learned throughout the season this year.” – Nick Eatman, DallasCowboys.com

As glad as Carr is to be back with his teammates, his teammates are equally as happy.

“We welcomed him back with open arms. That’s my guy. I love Brandon — and having him back, having him around, it takes a lot off us all,” Claiborne said. “Having his spirit around lifts us up. It’s one of those things where you don’t want to always bring it up. Like today, I wanted to ask him ‘How are you doing – like literally, how are you?’ He’s taking it like he should and things happen. You have to handle them a certain way, and he’s been handling it great.” – Nick Eatman, DallasCowboys.com

With Carr being back on Saturday, as well as other defensive players coming back from injury, the defense should be greatly improved going into next week’s preseason home opener against the Baltimore Ravens.
