The Dallas Cowboys have activated running back Alonzo Coleman from their practice squad. That news in itself isn't earth-shattering but it stings Cowboys fans. That news could mean that Marion Barber won't play this Sunday.
Barber hasn't practiced this week due to a dislocated toe he suffered against the Seahawks on Thanksgiving. If he cannot go, then rookie Tashard Choice will start and Coleman will be his backup. Choice has just 30 carries this season for 147 yards. Coleman's next carry will be his first.
This isn't good news for Dallas who will be traveling to Pittsburgh to face the NFL's best defense in the freezing cold.
