The Cowboys continue their training camp practices with their third practice in Frisco today.

The third day of practice has been “veteran's day” so far in camp, and if the Cowboys continue to give their key veterans a day of rest, Jason Witten, Sean Lee, Orlando Scandrick, Dez Bryant, Darren McFadden, and Tyron Smith could all get a day of rest.

Practice is scheduled to start at 3:30 p.m. CT / 4:30 p.m. ET, and there's this to look forward to:

Yesterday saw the return of Luke McCown, Cedric Thornton, and Byron Bell to practice, but Charles Tapper (neck strain) and Chaz Green (cramps) had to leave practice. Here's the full injury list.
