The Dallas Cowboys practice was a spirited affair today, categorized as one of the more entertaining practices yet by one scribe. The defense was certainly pumped up, but one play in particular raised the temperature and got Dez Bryant to express some anger. Mo Claiborne went low to try and grab a pass that was headed for the ground and in the process accidentally rolled up on Dez Bryant's legs.

That could have been disastrous. Luckily no one end up hurt, but Dez was fired up after that.

And finally, some not so good news.
