Eagles @ Cowboys Injury Report

For the Cowboys, RT Marc Colombo (leg) and SS Pat Watkins (ankle) are out for the home game against the Eagles, and both may be doubtful for the first week of the postseason.

As for the playoff game, coach Wade Phillips said, "I think it's a long shot for both of them." A second playoff game, if necessary could bring Colombo and Watkins back to the lineup. Watkins was running with a brace on his left knee during the open media of practice on Thursday.

These other Cowboys are probable for the game.

Here is the link to the Cowboys' official injury report.

Make the jump.

QB Mike Vick, who missed last week's Denver game with a quad injury, is listed as probable.

Vick fully participated in practice on Thursday and Friday.

Coach Andy Reid said that Vick will be the backup quarterback on Sunday, and that he could play.  "Yeah, he could," Reid said.  "He's feeling good.  He practiced today.  We have a couple things in for him.  I look forward to getting him back in there and playing."

The Eagles will also get safety Quentin Demps (ankle) back, who could help their return game.

Demps, the Eagles' primary kick returner since Ellis Hobbs was lost for the season with a neck injury, has been fighting an ankle injury for much of the season and missed the Broncos game. That created a near disaster, with rookie Macho Harris fumbling twice, losing one, and nearly costing the Eagles a win they had to have.

Here is the Eagles' official injury report.

Also probable for the Eagles are receiver Reggie Brown (shoulder), center Nick Cole (knee), safety Quintin Demps (ankle), guard Max Jean-Gilles (ankle), and receiver Jeremy Maclin (foot). No other Eagles appear on the injury report.

With C Jamaal Jackson out for the season, here's how Philly will shuffle its offensive line.

[G]uard Nick Cole moves over and Max Jean-Gilles takes Cole's spot on the right side. Cole is a center first, a guard second, so he steps into his natural position, but you have to believe there could be trouble with snaps and line calls.

In other news, Dallas players voted special teams coach Joe DeCamillis to be just the fourth person ever to receive the Special Courage Award.

The Cowboys have been inspired by DeCamillis' will since the beginning of organized team activities, when he wore a bulky neck brace and used Tom Landry's old bullhorn while coaching 15 days after he was injured in the collapse of the team's indoor facility.

DeCamillis' story took another painful twist Sunday afternoon, when he was rushed to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy. Doctors also repaired a hernia he didn't know he had.

Hat tip to DavidH22 for the FanPost.

Because he is a coach, DeCamillis was not eligible to win the Ed Block Courage Award. That award went to LG Kyle Kosier.
