Barber still out

Running back Marion Barber did not practice today. He remains out with a dislocated right little toe and might not regain full strength the rest of the season. Barber has been ineffective since injuring the toe on Thanksgiving Day and had just two carries for 0 yards against Baltimore.

Left guard Montrae Holland was also out with a sprained ankle and is not expected to play Sunday against the Eagles. Cory Procter will continue to be his replacement.

Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten was dressed out for practice but only stretched on the side during the media's availability. Wade Phillips is unsure how effective Witten can be for Sunday. Witten is dealing with an ankle injury that was reaggravated in the loss to Baltimore.

Safety Ken Hamlin (foot) was back at practice, as was fellow safety Keith Davis (shoulder). Linebacker and special teamer Bobby Carpenter (who missed last week's game with knee injury) returned. Cornerback Alan Ball (hamstring) and receiver Roy Williams (foot) also practiced.

It was such a freakish injury but the pinkie toe does have an effect on the rest of youer body. I wanna know who STEPPED on his toe initially...it might have been Choice!!!!!!! I just wanted Serena I mean Barber to get 1000 this yr.

This is to Marion Barber III. I am 10 years old and I played in a soccer match with a fractured big toe and I only had one day to recover in time to get onto the field. I would like to ask you this: how can you not play for over one month with a dislocated little toe?. My toe was throbbing in my boot and I had difficulty coping with the discomfort and pain. However, I still managed to score a goal and my team won the match 3-1. I thought that you were a tough guy but it seems to that you really are a scaredy-cat.

Marion Barber III, you have to be kidding!!! I have never heard of such an injury in any code of football preventing a player from earning his money for over one month. Are you serious?? The truth is you really do not want to play. Again, this reflects poorly on Sniffling Fatso. If Barber is truly restrained by a small toe, then at the very least he could pound the ball straight up and down, without needing to do much cutting. Leave the cutting and shifty running to Choice. This team is becoming a joke. Barber III, I told you about John Sattler, the Australian front row forward playing for 70 minutes in a Final with a shattered jaw!!! This is the team's defining moment, a last ditch effort to salvage something from a poor season. Given the circumstances and importance of this game, its obvious to me that Barber does not want to be here any longer and that he will soon be traded away.

OMG'sh Ball is out what'll we do?
