Injuries A Concern For Cowboys: Marc Colombo, Kyle Kosier Uncertain For Opener

Both Marc Colombo and Kyle Kosier could miss the season opener against the Washington Redskins.

Colombo, who had five loose particles removed from his right knee three weeks ago, has yet to return to practice. The arthroscopic knee surgery that Colombo required calls for a recovery time of 2-4 weeks, which would imply that Colombo could return just in time to face the Redskins.

However, Coach Wade Phillips said he was uncertain whether Colombo would play in the opener, but went on to say that if he practiced on Wednesday, it would be more likely that he would play.

Kosier, on the other hand, is even less likely to dress for the week 1 matchup after spraining the MCL in his right knee, also three weeks ago.  Kosier's injury did not require surgery, as it was only a grade-1 or -2 sprain. However, the injury does require 4-6 weeks of recovery time, which would put Kosier out for week 1, and possibly week 2. 

Injury Reports for each NFL team are released tomorrow (Wednesday).

At the moment, I would presume that Colombo will be listed as ‘Questionable' and Kosier as ‘Doubtful'.

In other injury news, Marcus Spears, Keith Brooking and Gerald Sensabaugh returned to practice today (Tuesday), and are expected to start at their respective positions (left defensive end, weak inside linebacker and strong safety) on Sunday.
