As I stated yesterday, the Cowboys are now in a do or die situation if they expect to play in the post season. And while there are no guarantees in this game, the Cowboys’ chances have just gotten infinitely better.
Most of us all expected to see quarterback Tony Romo return against the Redskins, but the Cowboys received some more good news in practice today when both Prob Bowl cornerback, Terence Newman and starting guard, Kyle Kosier practiced without any limitations.
The return of Newman will probably send rookie cornerback, Mike Jenkins back to the bench, but we’ll be sure to see more of Jenkins as the season moves forward.
Kosier will provide some instant relief to an offensive line that has been the same since he was injured back in week three.
Rookie running back Felix Jones is also considered to be at 100% and is expected to make his long awaited return against the Redskins as well.
There was some additional news that came out of practice that suggested Greg Ellis will lose more playing time to Anthony Spencer. Wade Phillips did little to extinguish those rumors when he said the following.
“I thought he played the best of anybody up front or the best of anybody on defense in our last game,” Phillips said. “We’ve got to get him in the ball game, certainly.”
It will be interesting to see how this plays out going forward.
That’s all for now, Go Cowboys!
