Tyrannosaurs have been known to only have two but if this dinosaur had three

Carnosaur family (same family that Allosaurus, Dilophosaurus and
Ceratosaurs belongs to).

Dilophosaurus and Ceratosaurus are ceratosaurs, not carnosaurs (if you were
basing their placement in the Carnosauria by the fact that they have three
fingers, Dilophosaurus and Ceratosaurus do not, they have 5 [I think]).  
Carnosaurs are only Allosaurs and close relatives (Sinraptorids,
Carcharodontosaurs).  Please someone correct me if I am wrong.
