Tommie Harris isn’t out for revenge this week even if Marc Colombo can make it back on the field and put Alex Barron out of his misery.
The Dallas Cowboys are desperately hoping that Colombo can return as their right tackle for Sunday’s game vs. the Chicago Bears at Cowboys Stadium. Colombo underwent arthroscopic knee surgery to remove some loose cartilage a month ago and his replacement Barron was awful in Dallas’ loss at Washington.
The plan is for Colombo to practice for the first time since surgery on Wednesday. Provided he doesn’t have any setbacks, he could be in the lineup on Sunday. The last time the Bears and Cowboys tangled, in Week 3 of the 2007 season at Soldier Field, Colombo got away with a nasty leg whip that injured Harris’ left knee. No penalty was called on the play but it didn’t go unnoticed in the league office as Colombo, a former Bear, was fined $12,500.
“Honestly, I don't think about that at all," Harris told Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune. "He apologized to me after the game. He beat me to my car in the parking lot. There's no bad blood.
“That man is trying to feed his family, just the same way I am," Harris said. "I don't take that junk personally. All those boys out there (on the offensive line) play dirty. That's what they have to do to stop me. Even if he didn't apologize, I don't care," Harris said. "I don't have any respect for any lineman, but I respect his apology."
We’ll see if they meet on the field again Sunday.
