Stock Report: Church up and centers down
Barry Church. When the Cowboys released Brodney Pool it sent a message to Church. You're the starting safety. Church made plays in camp -- interceptions, pass breakups and being in the right place. Pool didn't do that. Church kept his head down and just made plays, something the head coach likes.
|Cowboys S Barry Church talks about getting the starting nod after the team released Brodney Pool, playing under Rob Ryan and more. |
Andre Holmes. The favorite to become the No. 3 receiver is sliding. He can't pull down high catches, and despite running pretty good routes, is inconsistent. Kevin Ogletree got run with the first team with Miles Austin out and Holmes is getting beaten out by Tim Benford and Cole Beasley.
Miles Austin. Hamstrings, hamstrings, hamstrings. The Cowboys lead receiver is out for a while as he nurses his hamstrings. It's hard to say whose fault it is. Is it Austin's for not communicating with the training and coaching staff? Is it the coaches for not monitoring Austin's reps in practice? Maybe it's genetics.
