Marion Barber Misses Practice


IRVING, Texas (AP) - Cowboys running back Marion Barber missed practice Wednesday, as expected, because of his sore left knee. Coach Wade Phillips is still hopeful his leading rusher will play Sunday in Minnesota.

As if this being a second-round playoff game isn't motivation enough, Barber also is from Minnesota and has never played there in the pros. Phillips said Barber has been upset to have been held out of two preseason games there.
