The Dallas Cowboys are planning to make a change on the offensive line to cover for injured right tackle Marc Colombo. Doug Free is expected to make his first career start Sunday against Washington in place of Colombo, who has started 57 consecutive games. Colombo had surgery Monday, a day after he broke his left leg and suffered ligament damage in his ankle against Green Bay. The Cowboys had considered moving Leonard Davis from guard to tackle, but that would have meant a new position for Davis and having to find a replacement for him. Davis was a left tackle for Arizona before signing in 2007 with Dallas, where he has been a Pro Bowl guard both seasons.
