Cowboys guard Ronald Leary got some looks with the first team offense on Monday, just days after coming off the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.
With first round draft pick Zack Martin in the fold at right guard, Leary will compete with his friend Mackenzy Bernadeau for the starting left guard spot. Last year, Bernadeau started on the right side for most of the season, and Leary was a 16-game starter on the left.
The position battle between the two pals couldn’t start until Leary returned from a strained hamstring, suffered during the players-organized conditioning test at Valley Ranch.
“Just getting acclimated, trying to get his feet up underneath him,” head coach Jason Garrett said of Leary, per ESPN Dallas. “I think he’s had a couple of good snaps in the pass-rush drills. But you also see some rust he’s trying to knock off and gradually get him back in there competing for that spot. I think he has done some good things.”
