When the Cowboys offensive line slogged through the preseason, there was a hope that everyone would get healthy once the season started. That hope is quickly fading
Starting right tackle Marc Colombo and starting left guard Kyle Kosier both did not participate in practice on Wednesday. ESPN Dallas doubts either player suits up against the Redskins. Reserve tackle Sam Young was also out of practice, while safety Gerald Sensabaugh (foot) had full participation.
For the Redskins, Donovan McNabb fully practiced, as did tackle Jammal Brown (hip), and fullback Mike Sellers (knee). Safety Kareem Moore (knee) and linebacker Perry Riley (foot) both sat out.
Dallas’ O-line problems won’t help them turn around their sloppy efforts from the preseason. Even perennially-sunny coach Wade Phillips bemoaned a mistake-filled practice Wednesday.
“Some of the game plan that we put in [offense and defense], special teams, whatever, we didn’t execute well,” Phillip said Wednesday. “But you’re going to make mistakes. You don’t want too
many but today was a mistake day basically. Tomorrow shouldn’t be as
many. Friday you should be sharp.”
Why did that quote make me feel less secure about my pick of the Cowboys as NFC East champs?
