Tashard Choice proved late last season that he can hold up just fine as a primary running back against top defenses.
On Sunday, he’ll reportedly get another chance, despite Marion Barber’s return to the lineup.
ESPN’s Matt Mosley credits a source that says Choice will get the majority of work against Denver because the team isn’t fully confident in Barber’s injured quadriceps yet.
Barber practiced plenty this week, and should still be involved in the game. The team is just not sure how effective he’ll be. PFT mentioned earlier that the Cowboys were planning to activate running back Chauncey Washington, and they have in the meantime.
If Dallas’ offensive line can continue to run block like they have the first three games, it may not matter who gets the ball.
