Dallas Cowboys Minicamp Updates From Day 1 Of Practice

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

We'll keep a running tab on what is going on out at Valley Ranch today as the Dallas Cowboys participate in their minicamp. Today marks the first day of the mandatory practices and this time the press is allowed in.

So far we've noted that both Rolando McClain and Ronald Leary will be present at the minicamp. But, given their absence at the OTAs, the Cowboys will be slowly working them into practice.

We also posted the unfortunate injury news about Darren McFadden (fractured elbow) and Benson Mayowa (knee scope).

Others who are partial participants in today's practice:

Helman was impressed with the progress made by Lance Dunbar and Gavin Escobar.

As for who played where, a few nuggets from Bryan Broaddus on Twitter. David Irving took over at LDE as the starter. Randy Gregory and Michael McAddoo worked the main reps on the right side. Backing up Irving on the left side were Charles Tapper and Ryan Russell. Jack Crawford also got a lot of work at defensive end but Broaddus didn't make clear exactly where and what amount of reps he got.

BUT, Jon Machota says that Russell was getting first-string reps on both sides.

This is an interesting note.

Elliott also got the majority of the snaps with the first-string.

And finally, this from Todd Archer.
