"I'm not going to miss a game with this," said Carr, who was listed as probable on the Cowboys' injury report released Friday.
Coach Jason Garrett said no other player was sick like Carr and that several non-football personnel were asked to go home with the flu. It should be noted starting running back DeMarco Murray had the sniffles while talking to reporters on Thursday.
In some good news for the linebacker position that's been hit by injuries, Bruce Carter (hamstring) was listed as probable and should start against the Washington Redskins.
Defensive tackle Jason Hatcher (stinger) and defensive ends George Selvie (back) and DeMarcus Ware are listed as probable. Ware and Hatcher were full participants in Friday's practice while Selvie was limited.
Cornerback Morris Claiborne (hamstring) and linebacker Ernie Sims (groin) are listed as doubtful. Claiborne ruled himself out for the Washington game earlier this week while Sims, who hasn't practiced all week, said he did some running on Friday. Sims said he will make the trip to Washington and hopes to warmup in pregame to test his groin area.
As expected, linebacker Sean Lee (neck) and wide receiver Dwayne Harris (hamstring) have been ruled out. Harris did some more running on Friday and said he expects to play in the regular-season finale against Philadelphia. Lee said his neck is feeling much better.
