Cowboys need them
IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys expect to have their two
injured starters on the offensive line back for practice Wednesday,
which could be a big first step toward recovering from a loss in
the season opener.
Coach Wade Phillips said it's too soon to say whether right
tackle Marc Colombo and left guard Kyle Kosier will be able to play
Sunday in the home opener against Chicago. Both suffered knee
injuries during training camp.
Colombo would replace Alex Barron, whose holding penalty on the
final play of the game wiped out what would've been a game-winning
touchdown catch by Roy Williams. It was Barron's third holding
penalty of the game.
Dallas lost 13-7 to Washington.
While the patchwork line still produced 380 yards, the Cowboys
struggled deep in Redskins' territory.
