The Cowboys will once again have to do battle without left guard Kyle Kosier. Jan Hubbard of the Star Telegram reports that the veteran lineman is out roughly a month after spraining his right knee again. Kosier missed the season opener and final two preseason games with problems in the same knee. He is scheduled to have an MRI Monday.
In the meantime, journeyman backup Montrae Holland will fill the void. Holland is not a liability, but he certainly does not offer Kosier’s level of run-blocking mobility.
In other “sore knee news” with the Cowboys, tight end Jason Witten has a sprained MCL. He told Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas that everything is fine, though Witten’s status for practice this week is up in the air.
