With a veteran guard still working to get back into the mix and his backup ready to go on injured reserve, the Cowboys are looking for some outside help to patch up the guard position.
Veteran Montrae Holland is among three players who will be working out for coaches, scouts and team officials on Tuesday at Valley Ranch. Six-year veteran Daniel Loper has played for several teams in his career and will be looking to add the Cowboys to the list. The Cowboys will also work out Mansfield Wrotto, a five-year veteran who started seven games last year for the Bills.
Holland, who entered training camp as the starting right guard, but he wasn't in the best shape coming out of the lockout. He missed about a month dealing with both knee and back issues, while also working on his conditioning.
In the meantime, the Cowboys got plenty of looks at rookies Bill Nagy and David Arkin, with Nagy winning that battle and starting the opener. However, they also signed Dockery, who started one game before suffering a sprained MCL/broken tibia. Dockery said he's getting close to a return, but obviously the Cowboys are looking for help right away.
