Cowboys coach Wade Phillips addresses the media today to talk about the OL problem after Andre Gurode tweaked his knee and had to leave practice. He is having an MRI, which is not good. If he cannot go, Kyle Kosier slides over to center and he has never started a game there. Uh oh.
Montrae Holland would slide into his left guard spot meaning you are very thin on the OL with somebody like Phil Costa moving in as a backup. The good news? The Vikings run defense is not as good as it has been…the last four years, they have finished 1st, 1st, 1st, and 2nd in run D, but they are 14th this season and word is that NT Pat Williams is slowing down a lot. He is 37 years old but he also had some inflammatory comments this week….”We’re not worried about Barber and Jones. They are not top echelon runners.” [pullquote quote="Marc Columbo is a dirty player." credit="DE Ray Edwards"]
DE Ray Edwards also chimed in saying that “Marc Columbo is a dirty player.”
We’ll have more on the Gurode injury today and Dez Bryant’s status as he left the practice field as well because of that ankle problem.
