The Cowboys have been remarkably healthy this season, but starting running back Marion Barber had to leave Saturday's game after the first quarter because of a bruised left knee. He finished the game with three carries for four yards and his absence allowed Felix Jones to rush for 148 yards and a touchdown.
I fully expect Barber to start against the Vikings, but the Cowboys will continue to limit his carries. You saw what happened when Tashard Choice and Jones were given more opportunities. Choice and Jones both hit the hole a lot faster than Barber and that will be important against a talented Vikings front four.
