Since he injured the same foot for the third time this year, left guard Kyle Kosier could be lost for the year. He will be examined by another doctor to determine if he needs to be shut down for the rest of the season.
Wade Phillips said Monday left guard Kyle Kosier sprained his foot again and is out for Thursday's game against Seattle. Cornerback Mike Jenkins will also be out with a hamstring strain. Wade said tight end Jason Witten is fine after taking tought hit against the 49ers.
Don't expect Cowboys cornerback Pacman Jones to be a media star any time soon. He's allowed to practice beginning today, but he won't be allowed to play in a game until the week of the game against the Steelers on Dec. 7. As a result, don't expect a word out of Donkey Kong for another week ... at least.
One day after Donovan McNabb was benched at halftime in an u-g-l-y loss to the Ravens, Eagles coach Andy Reid said McNabb will be the starter when the Eagles play the Cardinals on Thursday night.
The Eagles (5-5-1) are just about out of the playoff race, so by the time the Cowboys play them in Philly a few days after Christmas there is a very good chance former Houston and Stephenville star Kevin Kolb will be starting. Kolb came off the bench to complete 10-of-23 passes against the Ravens for 73 yards with a pair of interceptions. His passer rating was 15.3, which was an upgrade over McNabb's 13.2.
Either way, it appears as if the beginning of the end for the Eagles dynasty that never was is just about begun.
Just in case you're wondering, former Cowboys running back Julius Jones leads the team in rushing with 637 yards on 141 carries for a 4.5 yards per carry average. He has two touchdowns. He signed with the Seahawks in the offseason after he felt, justifiably so, the Cowboys were never going to use him much more than as Marion Barber's caddie.
This season isn't what he could have envisioned after he "escaped" Irving.
But maybe he'll have a big day on Thanksgiving. One of the biggest days of his career came against the Bears on Thanksgiving as a rookie in 2004 when he rushed for 150 yards on 33 carries with a pair of touchdowns.
Jones is scheduled to talk to D/FW reporters via conference call on Tuesday afternoon, which considering how little he talked to the evil media when he was with the Cowboys is a real shock.
When the Cowboys lost against the pathetic Rams in St. Louis at least they had the following lame crutch to fall back on: They were playing with Brad Johnson, and a few other starters were out, too.
The Cowboys still should never, ever lose to a team as bad as the Rams and there is no excuse if they can't defeat the Seahawks on Thursday.
The Seahawks may even be worse than the Rams, if that's possible. Actually, it's not ... the Seahawks are better than the Rams but that's like winning the Smartest Dumb Person Trophy.
Seattle is 2-9 and has lost four consecutive games. It appears that in Mike Holmgren's last season in Seattle before Jim Mora jr. takes over that the Seahawks have just about quit. Teams like this are usually eager to lay down, so the earlier the Cowboys can get a lead on Thursday the better off they'll be.
No reason to give the Seahawks any semblance of hope, not that they have much anyway.
Their team is hurting, most notably led by their quarterback, Matt Hasselbeck.
When a pass comes towards Roy Williams he doesn't see a ball, he sees something else. "I think it's $100,000 in cash," he said. "You're not going to drop that." This explains why Roy One-One doesn't seem to drop many passes. He also said he thinks the defenders that are chasing him are dogs who want to tear him apart. UT fans may remember from his playing days in Austin he used these expressions, and I had to jog his memory today after the game to see if he still recalled his lines. Thankfully, he did.
Linebacker Greg Ellis was doing his best job at being politically correct after the game, but if he's ticked it usually comes through. When asked about the big change in the game, Ellis said, "I think (defenders) got in a better position. I didn't play a whole bunch myself, so maybe that's what happened. Maybe they changed the calls. When you're not in the game you don't get the calls so maybe they changed the calls. I don't know." Translation - since Anthony Spencer has come back I never get to play as much any more, and that bums me out. Big time.
The offensive line probably should send Tony Romo a thank you note for bailing them out of a few sacks on Sunday. His quick feet allowed him to elude rushers several times, including on a few of those long throws to Terrell Owens. But this wasn't the line's greatest day. The running game averaged 2.6 yards per carry. And of the Cowboys' eight penalties, five were on the line:
* Marc Colombo had a pair of false starts * Leonard Davis was called for holding and a false start * Flozell Adams was called for one false start
