Pregame notes from Denver

Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson

DENVER -- We’re approaching game time and I wanted to catch up on some notes as kickoff awaits:

Running back Marion Barber is active for Dallas and is expected to play. He was dealing with a quad injury.

Denver guard Ben Hamilton is inactive with a hamstring injury. Russ Hochstein will play for him.

Rookie Denver nickel cornerback Alphonso Smith is active with an ankle injury.

It is a cool 53 degrees in Denver.
