ARLINGTON, Texas -- Cowboys owner Jerry Jones hopes to have
both linebacker DeMarcus Ware and running back Marion Barber -- who
are injured -- ready for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh.
Ware returned to action in a limited capacity today, while
running back Barber missed practice again.
Jones hopes that Barber, who has a dislocated right pinkie toe,
will practice tomorrow.
In the locker room before practice today, NFL sacks leader Ware
had said he was feeling better since he sustained a hyperextended
Ware and Barber were both hurt Thanksgiving Day in the Cowboys'
34-9 victory over Seattle.
Jones indicated that the Cowboys might promote Alonzo Coleman
from the practice squad to add depth at running back.
With Felix Jones already out for the season, the only other
running back currently behind Barber is rookie Tashard Choice.
Ware was already sporting a brace on his knee and said he would
wear it in the game.
He said he planned to go full speed.
