Schefter and Werder had word from Jerry Jones, players since this morning. All seem to be thinking 2 weeks right now, but an MRI is still scheduled.

My friend that is a cowboys fan just said Barber practiced all last week and wanted to play yesterday. It is looking like he will be ready for this week. O don't know if it is true or if he is just hopeful though.

Jones is probably a bigger absentee that Barber would be.

Tashard Choice is a damn fine runner, not quite on Barber's level but more than capable of filling in for him for a couple of games without much drop off.

Jones on the other hand is their homerun guy, as a change of pace guy he is scary and a threat on special teams too. They've nobody else like that to step in for him.

Good news for us if he can't go.

Barber is a beast and will help them a lot with blitz pickup, but I was more worried about Felix Jones this week. Denver's defense has played great, but one area that we don't seem to good at is stopping the runs to the outside. Cleveland had success running pitches to the outside, and McFadden had his longest runs going to the outside. I think we are pretty good at stopping runs up the gut, but we seem to get gashed on the outside.

I was thinkin the same thing. Choice is more of a barber clone, they don't have that speed back now.

Sweet. Now there will be an excuse for when we beat them. We'll still be under the radar for New England.

Jones is fragile. I don't know how many carries/game he received in college, but he's never lasted more than 9 in his short NFL career.

I think Choice is scarier of the two. Barber and Choice is a brutal 1-2 punch. I hope our D can hold them down.

Can you say Phew! What is his YPC average... 9-10. He is scary good if he finds a crease.

Felix Jones is by far more dangerous than either in open field and the Cowboys have done a great job of finding it. Through his career thus far Jones has a higher than 9 yards per carry average. Choice can't touch that.

PCL sprain. Wade saying "day to day", but it's already out that he's not going to play this week.

No real word on Barber. Wade not sounding very confident about him.

Interesting as well that we have been pretty spared when it comes to injuries. A few minor dents and bruises but so far we seem to have managed to stay pretty healthy.
