Dallas offensive linemen Marc Colombo and Kyle Kosier are active and starting the Cowboys' home opener. Colombo, the right tackle, and Kosier, the left guard, sustained knee injuries in training camp and missed the season opener. Both went through a full week of practice before Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.
Pro Bowl linebacker DeMarcus Ware also starts for Dallas after leaving the season-opening loss at Washington early after taking a shot to the head. Bears linebacker Nick Roach was inactive for the Bears, but linebacker Lance Briggs started after being bothered by an ankle. Rookie linebacker Sean Lee (hamstring) was also inactive for the Cowboys, as was linebacker Brandon Williams.
