Kyle Kosier returns to the starting lineup; Anthony Spencer won't play

New, comments

Good and bad news on the injury front.

The good news is that we'll have our offensive line back together for the first time this season. Kyle Kosier will return to left guard. The bad news? Anthony Spencer is out for the game. The "maybe" news is that Sam Hurd wants to be active but is still a game-time decision. Hurd says he'll bribe the trainers to let him play. But it could be a case of special teams play and how Wade sets the roster in that respect with Roy Williams, Deon Anderson and Spencer out. All those guys play on special teams to some extent, and Pat Watkins now has to play defense for most of the game, too.

Jason Witten's toughness is becoming legendary

"I just didn't know what had happened," Witten said of his shoulder injury. "When I fell on it, it just kind of felt like it was stinging there and I was unsure what it was. Once I got the X-rays done right away I knew it wasn't broken, I was fine and I immediately wanted to go back in there."

Ex-Cowboys cornerback Larry Brown gives his preview of the game

Everybody is watching the matchup between the Packers passing game and the Cowboys pass defense. Aaron Rodgers' play has been stellar in the first two weeks, although that came against some poor pass defenses. But don't sleep on Rodgers, the guy can play. But, he's still inexperienced so the Cowboys will make an effort to confuse him and pressure him.

The Cowboys rookies are rocking. 

El Gato explains the art of kick return. Most of it is about setting up the blocks from the wedge, but you got to like this statement about getting in the open field.

"And you've got to finish the play. If that's making the kicker miss or the safety miss, that's finishing the play. You've got to get the ball to the end zone."

Ha! Love it.
