As the Dallas Cowboys' charter flight returned from Washington on Monday morning, embattled offensive tackle Alex Barron found a seat next to wide receiver Roy Williams. Barron's blatant hold of Redskins outside linebacker Brian Orakpo nullified Williams' game-tying touchdown on the final play of the Sunday night's game.
"He sat right next to me on the plane, and I just dapped him up," Williams said Monday afternoon via ESPNDallas.com. "I told him don't worry about [it]. He said he was sorry for taking the TD away, and I said it happens. It's going to be magnified and yada, yada, yada."
But even after the apology, I think there's a chance Barron has played his last snap of the 2010 season. Coach Wade Phillips said starting left guard Kyle Kosier and right tackle Marc Colombo will return to practice Wednesday, although he wouldn't make any promises regarding their status for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.
I don't think the Cowboys' medical staff would allow Kosier and Colombo to return Wednesday if there weren't a good chance of them playing Sunday. They would provide a huge lift for the offensive line, and quarterback Tony Romo would likely feel a lot more comfortable. He was forced to focus on a ton of bubble screens Sunday night because it didn't look like offensive coordinator Jason Garrett trusted his offensive line.
Meanwhile, Phillips took full responsibility for the Cowboys' horrendous decision to run a play at the end of the first half despite the fact that he has nothing to do with the offense. Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com has the full story.
