The Cowboys held a Monday practice this morning and all eyes were on the offensive line. More specifically, eyes were on Colombo and Kosier. People were hoping to see them lining up with the offense as they prepare for their encounter with the Washington Redskins this Sunday night.
Unfortunately, while Kosier and Colombo practiced together, they were doing rehab. Both players’ status for Sunday is uncertain and Phillips would not go either way. The Cowboys are hopeful that they will get to practice with the team ahead of their game on Sunday. The coaching staff usually requires players to practice at least a couple of days before participating in a game.
If the Cowboys need to resort to plan B it is likely that Montrae Holland will replace Kosier and Alex Barron will replace Colombo. The Cowboys will hope that it does not come to that and both Kosier and Colombo will be joining them on Wednesday when the team resumes practicing.
One of the bright spots from Monday’s practice was rookie wide receiver Dez Bryant was back on the field and looking “explosive” according to Rob Phillips of dallascowboys.com, who witnessed the open portion of practice. Bryant has not played a football game in a year. He missed all but one game in his final year of college due to a suspension. The Cowboys are quite confident that after he takes a hit and makes a catch he’ll be ready to go.
