Knee scope could keep Marc Colombo out a month

Marc Colombo will be sidelined up to a month after he undergoes arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that owner Jerry Jones said it will take just minor surgery to repair the damage suffered in Sunday’s practice. Per the report, the Dallas Cowboys right tackle will be out two to four weeks, which could put his availability for the Sept. 12 season opener in question.

It could be an opportunity for Alex Barron, the former first-round draft pick of the St. Louis Rams, to get a shot but he is currently sidelined with a sprained ankle. Sam Young, a sixth-round draft pick from Notre Dame, is also an option, as is Robert Brewster.
