Even in a Cowboys walkthrough, the headlines still rolled in.

On Saturday, it will be a padded practice. On Saturday, the intensity will be high, and there will be contact. On Saturday, the 2022 Dallas Cowboys will be grueling it out in preparation for their first preseason game nearly a week from now.

However, on Friday, none of the above occurred. The ninth training camp practice was a walkthrough as a way for the players to get simulated reps without straining themselves. There was still media attention, interviews, and one new face. But there were no pads, contact, or speed in Oxnard today. Here is how the day progressed.

Today started with the news that Friday’s practice would be slightly less intensive than usual.

But before the players took the field, Kellen Moore sat down with 105.3 The Fan to discuss the nuances of play-calling.

We then got an update on Jabril Cox, with news that Jeremy Sprinkle and Jake Ferguson would be working on strength training instead of participating in the walkthrough.

Then the practice started. Since it was low effort, there are not a lot of takeaways from today’s action. But the WR corps once again looked solid, and Dennis Houston is solidifying a connection with Dak Prescott.

In case you were wondering what a “walkthrough” looks like, here is an example of one play.

There was still a major headline from Oxnard today. The newest Cowboy, Anthony Barr, was at camp.

And for now, Barr will be rocking the number 51.

The practice itself was uneventful. But the media portion of today’s camp brought some great insights. Can you guess who the star of today’s interviews was?

Barr is not tempering his expectations for the 2022 Cowboys season and what he can do with Dan Quinn.

But other Cowboys received attention as well. Such as Joe Whitt Jr. speaking highly of one Dallas safety.

Simi Fehoko appears to be impressing coaches.

In a relaxed practice such as today, it was the perfect opportunity for some family time with the star of last year’s season of Hard Knocks.

But rest assured, tomorrow’s practice will be back to normal.
