Cowboys injury update

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley
Cowboys coach Wade Phillips said that quarterback Tony Romo "felt better" in practice Thursday and should be ready to go Saturday night against the Ravens. He said running back Marion Barber didn't practice and will be a "gameday" decision. Now that rookie Tashard Choice is playing so well, the prospect of Barber not playing isn't as ominous.

Safeties Ken Hamlin and Keith Davis didn't practice, but both of them should be ready to play Saturday. Bobby Carpenter is "iffy" and left guard Montrae Holland is struggling a little bit in his rehab. Looks like Corey Procter will get the start again at left guard.

One more interesting Cowboys note: Former Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson told Dan Patrick this morning that he doesn't think Jerry Jones will fire Wade Phillips -- even if the Cowboys miss the playoffs. He thinks Jones has too much confidence in the way the defense is playing right now to fire Phillips.
