Andre Holmes returns to practice squad

IRVING, Texas – Released from the active roster over the weekend, the Cowboys re-signed wide receiver Andre Holmes to the practice squad after he went unclaimed through waivers on Monday.

Holmes played in seven games, seeing most of his action on special teams. He caught two passes for 11 yards.

To make room for Holmes on the practice squad defensive linemen Tevita Finau was cut.

The Cowboys cut Holmes in order to make room for Anthony Armstrong. With Danny Coale lost for the year because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament, the Cowboys wanted to keep two wide receivers on the practice squad in Tim Benford and Holmes.
