Many blamed the Cowboys' Week One loss on the team's poor offensive line play, highlighted by a holding penalty on the game's final play by ORT Alex Barron. In Sunday's game vs. the Bears, the team hopes to correct those mistakes.
ORT Marc Colombo and OLG Kyle Kosier are both active to try and protect QB Tony Romo. Colombo is recovering from knee surgery that he underwent on Aug. 16. Kosier hurt his knee during training camp and has been rehabbing for the past six weeks. Barron will back up Colombo, while Montrae Holland is Kosier's reserve.
The way we see it
Even a banged-up Colombo may be better than Barron, who was flagged for three holding penalties a week ago. Going up against the Bears' pass rush featuring marquee free-agent acquisition DE Julius Peppers, who will be matched up against OLT Doug Free, the Cowboys' O-line has to allow Romo time to find his weapons down the field.
