The Dallas Cowboys coaching staff has turned to Cory Procter as the starter for injured left guard Kyle Kosier.
I thought they would turn to Joe Berger, or even Montrae Holland, the veteran the Cowboys picked up last week.
But Procter gets the call.You can read a report here.
Procter is more of a utility lineman, while Berger plays right guard. Oddly, head coach Wade Phillips said he thought Procter was a better bit because Berger is more of a right guard.
“I felt the other guys did well, but Cory seemed like the best fit,” Phillips said. “He did well also, at guard and center. He’s played there before and we have a lot of confidence in him.”
Phillips is expecting Holland to help in a few weeks.
“He’s a bigger guy,” Phillips said. “Procter I think is a good player and I think he’ll do well for us, but Holland’s a little more of an anchor – a bigger guy, he’s 325 (pounds), and pretty strong guy. And that’s why we got him, we think he can help us.”
