Jason Witten And Mike Jenkins Expected To Play For Cowboys In Houston

The Cowboys may not have survived the Bears, but they did survive a major scare to one of their best players, corner Mike Jenkins. Jenkins had to be carted from the sideline late in the fourth quarter Sunday, creating concerns that he might have torn a ligament in his knee. But unlike several big names from other teams this week, he appears to be no worse from wear. He likely won’t practice Wednesday but should play in Houston.

After a frustrating day of ranting on the sideline, Witten expects to be back on the field Sunday.

“I didn’t feel like it was a concussion,” Witten said. "I felt woozy there for a little bit, but everything is fine.

“I feel great. I don’t see any reason why I wouldn’t be playing this week.”

Witten engaged in a heated sidelines discussion with Dr. Robert Fowler of the club’s medical staff but was not allowed to return.

“I told him I was fine,” Witten said. “But I understand what his role is and what he’s trying to do. I just felt I knew what my body felt like more than anyone else. Any competitor is going to tell you that.”


Marc Colombo, Kyle Kosier Participate In Wednesday's Cowboys Practice

Left guard Kyle Kosier and right tackle Marc Colombo returned to Cowboys’ practice Wednesday, no doubt giving hope to Dallas fans concerned with the offensive line play against the Washington Reskins.

“They’re two experienced players that have played a lot for us,” Phillips said. “That’s valuable. Although we have confidence in our backup players — some of them played pretty well.”

The Cowboys don’t anticipate any problems whenever the two offensive linemen are able to return.

“I anticipate that the mental part of it will be very easy for them,” offensive line coach Hudson Houck said Wednesday about the return for Colombo and Kosier. “They’ll be tough. They won’t be afraid to move because of the injuries. They’ve both had injuries before, so they know how you come back from them. Many times, you’re a little cautious if it’s your first injury. I think they’ll be fine.”
