Here are all the highlights from today’s practice out in Oxnard, California.

NFL: Dallas Cowboys Training Camp Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome back for another edition of training camp highlights, let’s just get the business side out of the way. Here’s the list of guys that did not practice today but these are just some veteran days off:

It looks as if Dak Prescott is quite excited for practice to start:

Though he will miss the first two games of the season, he’s been the perfect Cowboy since being signed as a free agent.

A couple of updates on some guys that have been dealing with a few nagging injuries:

Look at Mr. Twinkle Toes...aka...Terrance Williams.

With all the guys not practicing, here’s the starting defensive line:

The wide receivers had a great day yesterday, they were looking pretty smooth in drills:

You’re not alone, Pat. Most of us would struggle through this:

Tank Lawrence has really been good in training camp, let’s hope that continues. Here are the edge rushers going through drills:

You could argue that Byron Jones has been the very best player at training camp:

Now, we’re here to show everyone’s favorite part of camp; the compete period!

The defense was doing well for the most part.

Can we talk about Rod Smith? He’s been incredible and super tough to get after.

Zeke came back to make a heck of play, nice throw by Dak.

Nice hands, Sammy!

Uh oh! Mark Nzeocha is about to be in O.C.C.’s doghouse:

Oh...wait...nevermind, O.C.C. is in love:

Here’s a name we don’t hear very much about, Duke Thomas making a good play:

Guys, these defensive backs have been bringing it on every single play. Seven days in and they’re still rocking with the receivers:

Noah Brown gets the catch but White wraps him up here:

Damn, Andy! He just went up and grabbed it from Chidobe Awuzie!

This was a pretty confusing but good play, Brown on the sweep? Okay now I see it:

Zeke is carrying over from the great day he had yesterday:

Dak Prescott with a great throw and awesome catch by Brice Butler:

Dak with the out for this linebacker disguised as a quarterback:

Butler has been quite consistent in these camp practices, he may be in for a solid season:

Another guy who just exudes consistency, Dan Bailey:

Speaking of consistency, these two veterans, just chilling.

Lance Lenoir has been showing well as a receiver but his best way to make the team is via special teams, someone may need to remind him:

Good news! We may have a kick returner for the preseason:

Scott Linehan dialing up the offense by two-way radio...whatever it takes, I guess:

Maybe Jonathan Cooper might have a little competition in ‘Jumbo’ Joe Looney:

Like I said when he was signed, Stephen Paea will make you forget about Terrell McClain. Two years with teams like the Browns and Redskins using him wrong has him ready to roll:

After two picks, Dak Prescott is staying away from Chido!

Kellen Moore and Andy Jones get denied from the standout corner, formerly of Colorado:

Chido is winning the day after struggling with receivers yesterday. Nice to see the rookie bounce back, here he is taking on Terrance Williams:

After starting out hot then getting cold, La’el Collins is dominating again:

Dez Bryant apparently loves himself some gummy candy...

Overall, it was by the far the most sloppy practice today with many dropped passes, muffed punts, etc.

Still, today’s camp had some solid takeaways. First and foremost, is how the defense has continued to perform well. Usually, camp starts out favoring the defense but this offense starts winning quite early.

Though there has been a lot of both, the defense is doing something they haven’t been known to do in recent memory and that’s play consistently. That’s certainly been encouraging, stay tuned to BTB for any training camp updates. We’ll be on top of anything and everything.
