IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys right tackle Marc Colombo practiced Tuesday and could be back in the lineup for the playoffs after missing the last seven games of the regular season with a broken left leg.
Cowboys coach Wade Phillips said it seems as if Colombo will be able to play in Saturday night's NFC wild-card game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Phillips said Colombo, who broke his leg and sustained ligament damage in his ankle during a Nov. 15 game at Green Bay, worked some with Dallas' first-team offense during practice Tuesday. Colombo started 57 consecutive games before he was hurt.
Cowboys safety Pat Watkins, who missed the past three games with a sprained left knee, also practiced. Phillips isn't sure if Watkins will play.
