From the Cowboys website...

IRVING, Texas - Christmas miracle? The Cowboys' self-named running back trio of Smash, Dash and Tash could all be back together on Saturday night in Arizona.

And not just reunited in the sense that Marion Barber, Felix Jones and Tashard Choice all appear to be healthy and ready to play, but it would seem there is a decent chance this week that the Cowboys return to their 2009 tactic of using all three on offense throughout the game.


After practicing fully on Wednesday for the first time since before Thanksgiving, Barber looks close to a return from the strained calf injury that caused him to miss the last three games. The Cowboys will now have to decide what that means in their use of the other two backs.

"We just want to make sure we give each of them opportunities," Garrett said. "Felix has been the guy who's carried the most this season, so I don't see that trend changing, but we want to give Tashard opportunities and we want to see where Marion is physically, and if he's ready to go, give him some chances as well."


Even as the backfield tries to approach full strength for Saturday, Jones sat out practice on Tuesday and Wednesday with a shin contusion, Garrett saying he wants to make sure the runner is fresh because of the short week.
