Today is the seventh day of practice in Oxnard, and the third of four consecutive practices allowed under the current CBA.

There will be one more practice tomorrow before the team heads off for an extended stay in Canton to play in the Hall of Fame game on Thursday and attend the Jerry Jones enshrinement ceremonies over the weekend. They'll be back and practicing in Oxnard on Monday, August 7.

Here's an overview of the entire remaining training camp schedule (all times are Pacific Time):
