The schedule is out! No, not that schedule... we've known about that for a few months now. This schedule pertains to the action before the action; how the team will go about setting their depth charts and planning for the real deal. The 2013 Training Camp schedule has been announced and we now know the times for each of the Cowboys practices.

Notes: Although they are only listed for the first day, one can expect a normal regiment of a morning walk-through and a Garrett press conference on the majority of days in Oxnard. All times are PST unless otherwise noted. The final two preseason dates are Cincinnati @ Dallas Saturday August 24th, 7pm CST and Houston @ Dallas Thursday August 29th, 7pm CST.
I haven't seen an official announcement, but based on prior years I expect the following dates for NFL Roster Cutdowns.
Down to 75 Players: 4:00pm EST, Monday, August 26th
Down to 53 Players: 9:00pm EST, Friday, August 30th
