Cowboys wake-up call: Day 5

OXNARD, Calif. -- Every day of Dallas Cowboys training camp we’ll offer up a wake-up call that offers a quick review of the previous day and a preview of the current day. Today’s schedule: The Cowboys will have their first off day of camp before returning to practice on Tuesday. Their second off day comes on Friday as they try to maximize their work before the Aug. 7 preseason opener against the San Diego Chargers with their mandatory practice schedule.

Dallas Cowboys’ projected roster

IRVING, Texas -- Examining the Dallas Cowboys' roster: QUARTERBACKS (2) Tony Romo Brandon Weeden Romo's health will be something that will be monitored throughout camp and perhaps it could force the Cowboys to carry a third quarterback on the 53-man roster as insurance. That would benefit Caleb Hanie, who joined the team in April, or undrafted rooke Dustin Vaughan. The Cowboys haven't kept three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster since 2011, but they don't want to get caught needing a quarterback if something were to happen to Romo and Weeden had to start.

Dallas Cowboys Training Camp News Day 4 – Revengeful Defense

It was a busy fourth day of Dallas Cowboys training camp. The weather was perfect for smash mouth football, yet the hard hitting of yesterday’s session did not carry over to today. This did not prevent a couple of Cowboys from getting banged up. Matt Johnson walked off the field with a tweaked hamstring, a sight that Cowboys fans are quite familiar with.

Cowboys to be patient with Murray contract

OXNARD, Calif. -- The Dallas Cowboys have let it be known they want to sign Dez Bryant and Tyron Smith to long-term contract extensions. They don’t have the same sense of urgency with running back DeMarco Murray. Murray is entering the final year of his rookie contract, just like Bryant. The Cowboys picked up the fifth-year option on Smith’s deal in the spring for 2015 but want to lock him up before they get to next season. Just because the Cowboys do not anticipate an extension for Murray does not mean he is not part of their future.

Cowboys Camp Report: Day 4

OXNARD, Calif. -- A daily review of the hot topics coming out of Dallas Cowboys training camp: Tony Romo averaged just 7.2 yards per attempt in 2013 as the field shrunk on the Cowboys. Through two padded practices Romo is looking to get the ball down the field. On the first play of team drills he connected with Dez Bryant on a deep ball after Bryant left cornerback Morris Claiborne. In seven-on-seven drills he led Terrance Williams for a big gain with Williams out-jumping B.

Jason Garrett gets under Dez Bryant’s skin

OXNARD, Calif. -- Head coach Jason Garrett pretty much guaranteed an elite performance by Dez Bryant during Sunday’s practice. Garrett made sure to get under Bryant’s skin the previous afternoon, throwing another log on the Pro Bowl receiver’s competitive fire. The head coach loudly provided some intentionally inaccurate color commentary after Bryant got wide open but was overthrown on a pass during 1-on-1s, barking that cornerback Orlando Scandrick had kicked Bryant’s butt on the rep.
