Marion Barber: will he or won't he?

Dallas Morning News - [Full Article]

It's time for our daily Marion Barber update.

Barber continues to practice on a limited basis. He continues to have swelling where he strained his quad.

Wade Phillips continues to weigh whether or not it makes sense for the team's leading rusher to play.

"He wants to play,'' Phillips said. "Whether it's prudent for him to play or whether he's healthy enough, those things have to be determined. We've still got a couple of days left.

"I don't want him to be in a situation where number one, he could be hurt worse and you lose him for a longer amount of time...His game is power. If he's not as powerful, that could be a factor. It's so subjective.''

One thing that won't happen is for Barber to be active if he can only be used on a limited basis.

"You don't want to roll the dice with a player like that,'' Phillips said.
