Hamstring Injury Costs Holmes Roster Spot

For two straight days, it looked as if wide receiver Andre Holmes was finally going to get that shot to be on the 53-man roster.
The practice squad receiver worked with the special teams units on Wednesday and Thursday, a good indication he would be called up since he’s in the game plan for this week. But near the end of Thursday’s practice, Holmes suffered a strained hamstring that will likely keep him out of action for a few weeks.
It’s actually the second time this year Holmes has injured his hamstring on the week the Cowboys were considering signing him to the roster....
There's no right way to do the wrong thing.
