Holloman has neck examined, LB added
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas -- Already thin at linebacker with Sean Lee and Justin Durant out with hamstring injuries, rookie linebacker DeVonte Holloman is getting his neck looked again after some soreness from Wednesday's practice.
Holloman has missed the last four games with a spinal contusion. He returned to practice last week but Wednesday was his first full-padded workout since getting hurt prior to the Oct. 20 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
He was slated to start at strong-side linebacker in Durant's absence. The Cowboys moved Kyle Wilber to linebacker last week and also have Kyle Bosworth and Cam Lawrence available.
The Cowboys also signed Orie Lemon off the Arizona Cardinals practice squad. Lemon spent parts of the 2011-12 seasons with the Cowboys, mostly on the practice squad after signing with the team as an undrafted free agent.
To make room for Lemon on the 53-man roster, the Cowboys will have to make a roster move.
