Montrae Holland has surgery
Holland suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of last week’s 20-7 loss to Philadelphia. Holland, who will be a free agent in 2012, faces 3-4 months of rehab.
Holland was among the Cowboys’ final cuts coming out of training camp but was re-signed after Bill Nagy suffered a broken ankle. He started 10 games and help the Cowboys running game improve with the insertion of DeMarco Murray in the lineup.
Veteran Derrick Dockery, who suffered a knee injury in his only start of the season, Sept. 18 at San Francisco, has worked with the first team this week and will start Sunday vs. the New York Giants.
Holland, who is one of three offensive linemen to be a free agent, could return next year. Nagy started four games this year before ankle surgery ended his season. He has said his rehab is going well and will be 100 percent for the offseason program. David Arkin, the team’s fourth-round pick this year, has been inactive for every game this year, but the team believes he can be a starter in the future.
