Tommie Harris OK with Marc Colombo
By Calvin Watkins
We're not sure if Marc Colombo is going to play on Sunday vs. the Chicago Bears, but if the Cowboys starting right tackle does it gives defensive tackle Tommie Harris a chance at revenge.
In the last meeting between the teams, 2007, Colombo, a former Bear, leg-whipped Harris in the knee area knocking him out of the game. The leg whip forced the NFL to fine Colombo $12,500
Harris suffered a torn MCL and needed two surgeries on the knee just for him to return to the field healthy.
Now Harris and Colombo meet for the first time since that injury.
"Honestly, I don't think about that at all," Harris told the Chicago Tribune. "He apologized to me after the game. He beat me to my car in the parking lot. There's no bad blood."
The chances of Colombo playing is in question since he's trying to recover from having surgery a few weeks ago to clean out loose cartliage in the knee.
Colombo said two weeks ago he's feeling pretty good but said it's up to the doctors and trainers to decice.
