Cowboys optimistic about injuries
Starters should be back soon
OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is counting on
having his four most recently injured starters back in the lineup
for the season opener.
While right tackle Marc Colombo and linebacker Keith Brooking
already were expected to return, and safety Gerald Sensabaugh also
seemed likely, Jones' comments Wednesday are the most optimistic
yet for left guard Kyle Kosier.
Kosier was expected to miss up to three regular-season games
because of a sprained knee. But Jones said he's planning on Kosier
being back Sept. 12 at Washington.
Sensabaugh hurt a shoulder last Saturday. Jones said trainers
consider his recovery better than expected.
Colombo had knee surgery to remove loose particles. Brooking has
a minor shoulder injury.
