Cowboys 2015 Training Camp, Practice Number Five: A Video Diary

A summary of Tuesday's fifth training camp practice, in the form of a compendium of short video clips.

Stan Liu-USA TODAY Sports

As I noted in my practice summary, I thought I might change things up a bit to help alleviate the same-thing-different-day nature of training camp and the subsequent reports. So, instead of offering you the full blow-by-blow to read, I thought I'd offer one to see. Here, for your visual delectation, therefore, is a "video diary," organized by the various periods in a typical practice session.

A necessary disclaimer: I'm neither a cameraman nor the owner of quality video equipment (this is all taken with my iPhone), so allow me to apologize in advance for the lack of zoom. That said, I must give a shout out to the great YumaCactus, who arrived in Oxnard, dusted himself off, and promptly began to contribute a lot of great video. It's his camera that got the better close-ups. Salute!
