The Dallas Cowboys have released Kosier, a 10-year veteran who spent six seasons in Dallas.|||||||
The move Monday wasn't a big surprise. The Cowboys last week signed a record seven free agents, including offensive guards Nate Livings and Mackenzy Bernadeau to multiyear contracts. Kosier started all 80 games he played in Dallas since arriving from Detroit in 2006. The 33-year-old guard played one season for the Lions after opening his career with three seasons in San Francisco.

Veteran Montrae Holland took Kosier's place during the morning workout and would start if Kosier doesn't return for the preseason game Saturday night in San Diego.
The Cowboys placed Kosier on injured reserve Saturday. Kosier will probably have surgery this week on his fractured right foot.|||||||
