This is a blow for the Cowboys, to be sure, but it could have certainly been worse. The play in question saw Barber come up lame on a run that might have resulted in a Cowboys touchdown otherwise; instead, Barber pulled up, hobbled for about five yards before crumpling to the turf at Cowboys Stadium.
Not so fast...
IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Marion Barber walked out to the practice field in full gear and flashed a thumb's up.
His tight left thigh was feeling fine on Wednesday -- or, at least, good enough to give it a test run.
Barber strained his leg during a 35-yard run late in the fourth quarter of Dallas' loss to the New York Giants on Sunday night that might've been a 42-yard touchdown run had he not come up lame. He said it "felt like a bad cramp" and is hopeful of playing against Carolina on Monday night.
