Cowboys Quick Hits: August 18th, 2011


Let's take a quick turn around the web for the latest in Cowboys goodness.

-- Miles Austin's slightly injured hamstring looks like it might be too much to bear in the inter-squad scrimmage with the Chargers on Thursday. [ESPN]

-- Tony Romo's feeling good about the phase of his career he's getting ready to enter. [DMN]

-- Felix Jones talks a little to The Ticket. [DMN]

“This off-season I had a lot of time to focus on different aspects of my game,” Jones told Norm Hitzges. “As far as doing my footwork drills or speed training, being away from the facilities and doing the regular things that we do there, I had more time to focus on what I wanted to do. I believe that helped me out a lot this summer.”



-- Victor Butler had a radio gig on Wednesday and shared the following quick hitter on his play in the upcoming season:

"With Rob [Ryan] and another year under my belt, guys like [DeMarcus] Ware and Anthony Spencer and Bradie James just told me, 'Hey we expect big play out of you, we want to win games, we've got all the tools to do it and we want you to be a part of it ... and with the ability that you have, we need you to step up.'"[ESPN]

-- Then Ol' Vic relaxes and gets breezy with Ben & Skin. [SportsDay]

What kind of TV shows and music do are you into?

When I’m not footballing, I watch a lot of the old NFL Films-type things. First of all, I like the soundtracks. Whoever is narrating the old NFL films (John Facenda), I love him. He’s so passionate about football. I like watching True Blood. My mom got me into it. I’m a big Dexter fan and I like cartoons.

-- Stephen McGee is learning from Jon Kitna and is cool where he's at for the minute. [NBCDFW]

-- DE Sean Lissemore is getting in wherever he can fit in. [ESPN]

-- Meanwhile, DE Igor Olshansky says he's not worried about losing his starting job. Is he part of film study? [NBC DFW]

-- For all of you folks that are buying second hand tickets for Sunday's tilt against the Chargers, yes they are legitimate even though they have Saturday's date on them. DMN with the public service post.
