Barber activated for Cowboys' showdown with Ravens

Dallas Cowboys running back Marion Barber will play Saturday night against the Baltimore Ravens.

He didn't practice Thursday and was a game-time decision, like he was a week ago when he had only 2 yards on eight carries. Barber, who is on the team's active list pregame, has been hampered by a broken pinkie toe that forced him to miss a game.

The Cowboys (9-5) are still in a precarious playoff position. They now have the NFC's top wild-card seed but have games remaining against the Ravens (9-5) and at playoff-hopeful Philadelphia (8-5-1).
