The Dallas Cowboys took to the Oxnard fields for the final time before they return home to take on the Cincinnati Bengals. It was a short walkthrough of sorts before the Cowboys exited early to get ready to head home.
Opposites attract as Sean Lee is responsible for so many tackles and on the contrasting side, Ezekiel Elliott is responsible for so many missed tackles.

Let’s check on a few guys that got nicked up yesterday:
Leighton Vander Esch (groin) is not on the field for the Cowboys final practice in Oxnard. He was hurt Wednesday. Tavon Austin (hamstring) is in the field but he has not taken any team snaps yet. Travis Frederick (stingers) is not practicing and Tyron Smith is taking a day off.— Todd Archer (@toddarcher) August 16, 2018
These two are going to wreck shop on some offensive lines this year:

Randy Gregory and DeMarcus Lawrence are just glad that they don’t have to face these guys in real games:
It’s a tradition for Dak Prescott to lob it and today’s receiver with the dunk would be Rico Gathers because DUH!
Travis Frederick was out there doing some stuff during drills:

The Cowboys were working on a little late-game packages, like sending Tank out in coverage:

It was a low-key practice as the Cowboys didn’t work on much. For a good part of practice Dak Prescott wasn’t totally on his game.

Just when we thought this was going to be a bad day for the quarterbacks, Dak Prescott says “Hey Michael Gallup, let’s end this on a high note!”
Though practice was a short one, we appreciate you guys sticking with BTB throughout the Cowboys time in Oxnard, California. The Cowboys will be returning to Dallas to put the final stamp on training camp. Roster cuts are just around the corner but for now, we sign off from Oxnard!
