The chances that Dallas Cowboys' offensive tackle Mark Tuinei will play Sunday against the Miami Dolphins are probably better than 50-50, coach Barry Switzer said.

Tuinei said yesterday that he plans to play Sunday and "see how long I can go."

"I feel pretty good," Tuinei said. "There haven't been any setbacks this week."
