IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys say left tackle Marc
Colombo, linebacker Bradie James, running back Felix Jones,
cornerback Terence Newman did not practice yesterday, but they're

Colombo (back), James (knee), Jones (ankle) and Newman (ribs)
could practice today.
Left guard Kyle Kosier, who missed the last game with an ankle
injury, went through a full practice and is expected to start.

also was their first pick that draft.
Of the 12 guys in that draft class, kicker David Buehler and
backup linebacker Victor Butler are the only contributors. Stephen
McGee is the backup quarterback and tight end John Phillips is on
