After returning to practice on Wednesday, not feeling any setbacks on Thursday, it's starting to look as if right tackle Marc Colombo will be playing this Sunday against the Bears at Cowboys Stadium.
Colombo, who along with guard Kyle Kosier, practiced Wednesday for the first time since mid-August. Colombo had arthroscopic knee surgery on Aug. 16 to remove loose particles.
"I'm pretty sure I will," Colombo said. "I'm going to get back out there today and work hard. I've got the intention to play this weekend."
Colombo added that his lower body felt "great" after his first practice in a month.
While Colombo is eager to play, regardless of the opponent, there might be a little extra incentive to return because the Bears are coming to town. Colombo was drafted by Chicago in the first round (29th overall) in 2002. But injuries to his knee cut his career short with the Bears and he was picked by the Cowboys in 2005, where he developed into a fixture at right tackle.
