Cowboys injury report: Running back issues
By Calvin Watkins
There were concerns coming out of the Cowboys' wild card victory over the Eagles on Saturday night: it appears both running backs are nicked up.
Starter Marion Barber could only play one quarter before his bruised left knee gave him troubles. He finished with just three carries for four yards on Saturday. Barber is not scheduled for any MRIs or X-rays.
Backup running back Tashard Choice left the game with 2:15 to play in the fourth quarter after getting knocked around. Choice, who suffered from a mild concussion last week that forced him to miss a few days of practice, appeared woozy as he walked to the sidelines.
Right tackle Marc Colombo played his first game in seven weeks as he recovered from ankle surgery and a fracture left leg. Coach Wade Phillips said Colombo came out of the game fine.
