The big issue for the Cowboys this week will be the health of offensive linemen Marc Colombo and Kyle Kosier. Dallas seemed to cope with Kosier's absence through decent play by Montrae Holland, but backup right tackle Alex Barron was a disaster. Despite saying that he expects to see them at practice Wednesday, Wade Phillips wasn't exactly reassuring in his Monday press conference.
"I don't know about optimistic," Phillips said. "There's a possibility certainly. And I don't really know which one, or both, or neither. We just have to wait until Wednesday and see what happens."
Phillips also admitted that David Buehler's short field goal miss once again makes the kicker a concern.
"Well it's concern, yeah," coach Wade Phillips said. "He kicked so well [until] that one kick. It's only one kick, but I'd like to see him follow up with a better game."
