Cowboys news and notes

NFL Total Access sent a reporter to Big D to interview Bum, Wade and Wesley Phillips. It was more about family than football, but it was still interesting to watch all three together talking about life as a football coaching dynasty in Texas. Go to and look on the right hand side for the free videos.

Isaiah Stanback says he’s finally starting to get healthy and that he should be ready to practice at training camp.

"Two weeks ago, my foot was progressively getting better," Stanback said. "And then last week, it clicked. My foot was feeling good. I was cutting, running routes at full speed, not having any pain. Decelerating was the last thing to click for me and that's starting to feel good. It's just progressively getting better."

Stanback is immersing himself in the playbook, standing by the assistant coaches at the practices and talking to the veterans, all in an effort to learn his new position of wide receiver.

I'm going to work on everything," Stanback said. "I'm going to be working hard - conditioning, getting in shape, running routes, all of it. My hands are pretty good but you still have to worry about pulling the ball in, tucking it away. I've got to start from square one, and I've got a lot of work to do."

And the guy he talks to the most is the guy he should talk to, another former college QB-turned-WR, Patrick Crayton.

While Stanback admits he has learned a lot from his locker room neighbor - veteran Terrell Owens - he said the player who is giving him the most advice is fourth-year veteran Patrick Crayton, a player Stanback will likely be competing with for playing time this season.
