We'll keep this thread open throughout the day to track any interesting developments from the Dallas Cowboys first organized team activity practice this week. All eyes will be on Tony Romo, the defensive line, where the rookie draft picks fall into the rotation, and various other storylines.
You should keep refreshing this thread periodically as we add tweets or other notes from Valley Ranch. Latest updates will appear at the top (below the dotted line).
------------------------We have a thread up to discuss the Sean Lee injury, here. We don't know exactly what it is yet, some kind of leg injury.
A unicorn sighting.

Romo taking it easy.
Romo now taking it easy during full offense routes in air. Brandon Weeden working with the 1s. No Kyle Orton— Todd Archer (@toddarcher) May 27, 2014
More on Melton and Tyrone Crawford.
Melton, Crawford both in uniforms getting work in for OTAs. Melton moving pretty well with ones in individuals. Encouraging. Wilber with LBs— Rowan Kavner (@KavnerDC) May 27, 2014
Gotta like #50 being back.
No pads, but Sean Lee doesn't look remotely hindered by injury. Practicing with the same murderous rage as usual.— David Helman (@HelmanDC) May 27, 2014
Turns out Henry Melton is at the practice, how much will he participate?

Zack Martin is running with the 1's at RG.
First-round pick Zack Martin is plugged in at right guard with the starters. Mackenzy Bernadeau working at LG with 2s.— Tim MacMahon (@espn_macmahon) May 27, 2014
Tony Romo is present at the first OTA and is throwing the ball.
I'll try to keep the live tweeting of OTAs in check some, but Romo is here throwing, Spencer watching near weight room, no Orton— Rowan Kavner (@KavnerDC) May 27, 2014
Also, it's good to see Sean Lee back on the field and getting ready for practice. Sure, the defensive line was beat up last year, but when Sean Lee went down, a bad situation went to really bad. Unfortunately, as noted earlier, neither Henry Melton or Anthony Spencer are ready to participate. Melton will be brought along slowly with the hope he can participate in training camp. Spencer is likely a PUP candidate.
