Leonard Davis misses the mandatory

IRVING, Texas -- Cowboys starting right guard Leonard Davis missed the second day of the mandatory minicamp due to a personal manner.

Davis was given an excused absence because he had to attend a funeral.

The Cowboys used several different players in Davis' place, including starting center Andre Gurode. But coach Hudson Houck said don't read anything into Gurode replacing Davis. It was just for practice and won't be used for a game. Kyle Kosier got some first-team reps at center and Pat McQuistian played both guard spots.

Davis is expected to return on Sunday, the last day of the mandatory minicamp.
