The Cowboys re-signed Montrae Holland to help shore up their injury depleted guard position after rookie starter Bill Nagy was placed on injured reserve with a fractured ankle.
Holland was one of three lineman brought in for tryouts on Tuesday. The other two were Daneil Loper and Masnfield Wrotto.
The Cowboys were more comfortable with Holland because he had been with the team the past three seasons before being released before the start of the season. Holland had been tabbed to replace Leonard Davis in the starting lineup but missed much of camp with back and hamstring injuries.
The Cowboys also felt he came to camp out of shape, forcing them to go with the rookie Nagy as the opening day starter. They then cut Holland and signed veteran Derrick Dockery to the roster.
Dockery has missed the last month with a sprained knee and fractured tibia. With him out another week or two and Nagy out for the season, the Cowboys found a need for Holland again.
He had been working out since his earlier release and proved that he was healthy and in shape with a strong work out on Tuesday.
