With Injuries To O-Line Piling Up, Cowboys Bring In Familiar Faces

Montrae Holland, Derrick Dockery and Daniel Loper were brought in to work out for Dallas this week




    With interior linemen dropping like flies in training camp, the Dallas Cowboys brought in three familiar faces on Thursday to work out for the team and, potentially, provide some depth for the ever-thinning group. Montrae Holland, Derrick Dockery and Daniel Loper will all be brought in to audition for Dallas this week, and as you might remember, each spent time on the Cowboys’ roster in 2011.

    Of the group asked to work out, Holland has the most experience with Dallas, appearing in 10 games last season.

    Less than a full week into camp, the interior of the line has been hit hard by injuries. Bill Nagy (high ankle sprain) and Kevin Kowalski, both of whom were expected to battle Phil Costa for the starting center job are hurt, as is Mackenzy Bernadeau--who was favored to win the starting right guard job coming into camp, but instead has been sidelined and placed on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list along with Kowalski after undergoing offseason hip surgery.

    Projected starting left guard Nate Livings went down this week as well, with a hyperextended knee, but isn’t expected to miss a lot of time.
