Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told the press today that Marion Barber is expected to play Sunday against the 3-0 Denver Broncos. Felix Jones will not play.
Jones injured his knee and quad during the game against Carolina. His durability is becoming a problem for the Cowboys, who are tough to stop when Jones rushes for an average of 10 yards a carry.
The Broncos are definitely worried about stopping the Cowboys run, though. The three-headed monster leads the league in rushing, with almost 200 yards per game.
Brian Dawkins said it won’t be easy containing the Cowboys running game.
“It is going to be a challenge for all of us, not just the guys up front, to make sure that that running attack doesn’t get going.”
Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels shows concern about facing the Cowboys.
“Some of the holes that are opened, not sure I’ll see the rest of the year,” he said. “There’s plays the back doesn’t get touched, he’s 25 yards into the secondary.”
