The Cowboys have Monday off and return to the practice field on Tuesday.
"We're taking that under consideration. His legal issues are over now, (and) all of that has been determined. I've been observing him and taking into consideration how I think that he's handled the situation personally. We're going to give him more reps this week, and make that decision on Friday," said Gundy.
"At some point, I would like to put it to rest, just like with Victor (Johnson). It's dangled out there for a long time. It's time to put it to rest. He's gotten his punishment, how many ever games he sits out, and whatever he got internally within our program, and he needs to move forward and we need to move forward, and everybody needs to give him a chance to move forward. So, we'll make that determination on Friday."
"He said that the quarterback (Weeden) looked decent and the running back (Kendall Hunter) is the best in the country, and he's seen (Hunter) up close and personal. Two years ago we saw it up close and personal. He's got a tremendous amount of respect for Kendall. I didn't throw the ball a whole bunch but he said that he didn't blame me very much," Holgorsen said of his telephone conversation with Leach.
Holgorsen was asked what Leach thought of the Cowboys' new diamond formation in which two fullbacks line up beside Weeden in the shotgun and Hunter is lined up behind them similar to the I-formation. "We didn't talk about that. You know, you get on the phone with Mike and it's a minimum of an hour anyway. If we'd got into that conversation it would've been two to three hours," Holgorsen said with a grin.
"Kendall is a good player but I have a hard time comparing players to Barry," said Gundy, who played with the Pro Football Hall of Famer during the 1987 and '88 seasons.
