Cowboys’ Barber sidelined with calf injury

The Cowboys are trying to close out a Thanksgiving Day comeback over the Saints, but they’ll likely have to do it without Marion Barber.

Barber is currently on the sidelines with his left calf area wrapped, and according to the FOX game broadcast is questionable to return. He appeared to be injured during two failed goal-line runs late during the fourth quarter.

He had 10 rushes for 19 yards and a touchdown, plus two receptions for eight yards, before leaving.

With this game nearing a conclusion, it doesn’t appear we’ll see Barber again. But a serious injury could impact the Cowboys’ backfield rotation between Barber, Felix Jones and Tashard Choice.
