Running back Tashard Choice said he was feeling much better Tuesday, which is a good sign after missing all but one snap against Philadelphia with a concussion, but he will not practice.
The Cowboys will be cautious with Choice, who has passed the neurological tests and will be eligible to play Saturday as long as he does not have any more symptoms during the course of the week.
Right tackle Marc Colombo will practice with the team for the first time since suffering a fractured fibula and high ankle sprain on Nov. 15 at Green Bay. The bone has healed and the ligaments are fine. It's a question of pain tolerance, and that will not stop Colombo. He will have his left ankle heavily taped for added support.
Safety Pat Watkins will practice for the first time since suffering a sprained posterior cruciate ligament covering a kick against San Diego on Dec. 13. He will wear a brace but he hopes to be able to play Saturday vs. the Eagles.
Cornerback Terence Newman has a bruised knee that has caused him some issues the last few weeks but is not expected to keep him out of any practice.
