Contrary to earlier reports from KXAS-TV in Dallas-Fort Worth, ESPN’s Matt Mosley is saying that Cowboys running back Marion Barber still hopes to play on Monday against the visiting Caroline Panthers.
While the Cowboys would certainly miss the physical tailback, who ran for 124 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries against the Giants, Felix Jones and Tashard Choice have already proven to be more than capable backups.
This early injury hearkens back to last season, when Barber ran at less than 100 percent for a majority of the year after never really recovering from a toe injury early in the season.
With capable backups, should Marion Barber even risk another long-term setback?
