An injury update for Cowboys Fans starts today’s Daily Dose! Marion Barber and OLB DeMarcus Ware have been listed on Thursday’s injury report. Ware sat with back pains, however, it is hard to believe he’ll even consider missing this game. Ware has been playing with a wrist and neck injury through the past few weeks.
RB Marion Barber, was listed as not practicing with a knee injury. The injury is not expected to be serious, and Barber is expected to go Saturday night against Philly. If Barber is limited, it is good news that the Cowboys were able to get Tashard Choice back in the lineup.
Lastly, You can expect Marc Colombo to go Saturday, which will be a huge boost. Doug Free has been playing some good football and will rotate snaps with Colombo. Free hasn’t done enough to take Colombo’s spot, but has done enough to comfort some Cowboys fans who might be afraid what life will be like after Flo.
Giants look to hire
It has been reported through the Newark-Star Ledger that the Giants have contacted Defensive Coordinator/Head Coach Romeo Crennel. If you remember Crennel paired with Charlie Weis to help the Patriots become a dominant dynasty earlier in the decade. Crennel would be a smart choice for the Giants, despite his 3-4 scheme, he is a brilliant defensive mind who could easily translate some of the issues on the defense into strengths.
What can Brown do for you?
Eric Mangini has been granted a reprieve. He will indeed be the coach of the Cleveland Browns next season. That being said, he better figure out something with star player Joshua Cribbs. Mangini really started to get things going at the end of the season, thanks in large part to Jerome Harrison and Cribbs. Cribbs was quoted on Sirius NFL Radio as saying “We all just started to by into (Coach Mangini’s) system.” If the end of the season is any indication about how the Browns can play now that players and coaches are on the same page, bit things could happen. Especially with a mastermind like Holmgren at the helm.
