Report: Montrae Holland to Return Monday

The Rocky Mountain News is reporting that last year's starting right guard Montrae Holland will return to practice on Monday. Holland has been the but of more than a few jokes around the Bronco message boards, but has persevered through his own private hell. Holland's efforts working one-on-one with strength and conditioning coach Rich Tuten led to him losing anywhere from ten to twenty pounds in two weeks.

This isn't good news to everyone, Chris Kuper has been filling in for Montrae Holland while he was out. Kuper was the expected starting right tackle going into training camp, with Holland out Kuper was pushed over and second-year tackle Ryan Harris jumped at the opportunity for first-team reps on the offensive line.

My best guess is that Montrae Holland will not return immediately to the first-team and Chris Kuper will continue to take reps, maybe even beating Holland out. However, if Chris Kuper is not able to push Holland from his starting position, he still stands a fighting chance of locking Ryan Harris out at right tackle.
