Cowboys LB DeVonte Holloman's career is likely over due to his latest neck injury.

Holloman, a sixth-round pick in 2013, suffered a spinal contusion in practice last season and missed seven games. He returned to start the final two games at middle linebacker and was in the mix to help fill Sean Lee's shoes this season, but now this embattled Cowboys defense takes another hit to its already brutal depth. Holloman hurt his neck during Saturday night's preseason game when a teammate made contact underneath his arm.

The Cowboys "have concern" about the neck injury LB DeVonte Holloman suffered in Saturday's preseason game.

The No. 185 pick of last year's draft, Holloman missed seven games with a spinal contusion. A serious injury would leave the Cowboys' legendarily thin linebacker corps even more short-handed. Along with Rolando McClain, Justin Durant and Anthony Hitchens, Holloman is part of the Cowboys' post-Sean Lee mix at inside linebacker.

Bryan Broaddus of the Cowboys' official website considers second-year LB DeVonte Holloman the "best first option" to replace Sean Lee (knee) at middle linebacker.

Holloman, the 185th pick in last year's draft, started the final two games at MIKE last season while Lee was on the shelf. He was in a bit over his head but was billed as a strong cover linebacker coming out of South Carolina. Other options to replace Lee could be rookies Anthony Hitchens and Will Smith.

Cowboys signed No. 185 pick LB DeVonte Hollman to a four-year contract.

A late-round sleeper per Rotoworld college prospects guru Josh Norris, Holloman has ideal strong-side linebacker traits at 6-foot-1 3/8 and 243 pounds with experience in pass coverage. Dallas has a long-term need at SAM linebacker, as current starter Justin Durant is only a short-term fix.

Cowboys selected South Carolina LB DeVonte Holloman with the No. 185 overall pick.

Holloman (6-foot-1 3/8, 243) played strong safety before moving to the "Spur" hybrid linebacker position as a senior. He registered seven tackles for loss, two sacks, and three interceptions in 2012, before running a 4.76 forty with a 1.62 ten-yard split in Indianapolis. Holloman's experience in coverage should serve him well as he projects to a reserve outside linebacker spot if he makes the Cowboys.
