Linemen still hurting
IRVING, Texas (AP) - Cowboys starting offensive linemen Marc
Colombo and Kyle Kosier missed practice again Thursday, making it
even more unlikely that they will play in the season opener.
Coach Wade Phillips says Colombo and Kosier, who sustained knee
injuries during training camp, haven't been ruled out of Sunday
night's game at Washington. But the coach says missing practice
Wednesday and Thursday "makes their chances slimmer" that they
will play against the Redskins.
The Cowboys have veteran backup at both positions who have been
working with the starting offense this week. Alex Barron has been
at right tackle for Colombo, and Montrae Holland at left guard for
Phillips says Barron and Holland have practiced well and he has
confidence in them.
