The team took a day off yesterday, but it’s a new week and a new day of practice for the team as they head back out to field at Oxnard for Week 2 of practices.
This year’s first-round draft pick looks like a house in his pads. Good luck offensive linemen!

Always pay attention when a QB and a skill position player use their hands when they communicate.

With the pads on, Mike McCarthy looks to remain safe with the rehab players.
Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said RB Tony Pollard (leg) and RT Terence Steele (knee) will be “very limited” in team drills today during padded practice. “We just want to be smart. Those guys are coming off major injury.” Also better chance to evaluate younger players.— Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) July 31, 2023
This is the first time we get to see both kickers go at it. One the focus points for todays will be the kicking competition.
Tristan Vizcaino and Brandon Aubrey went 5 of 7 apiece on their first FG attempts of camp. Vizcaino missed from 33 and 45 yards. Aubrey missed from 43 and 45 yards.— Todd Archer (@toddarcher) July 31, 2023
Special team work continued on punt returns and KaVontae Turpin gets down for the return.
The big three at cornerback get in on some defensive drills. Good to see Trevon Diggs do some drills after sitting out previous drills with a foot injury.
Could this mean we see more running plays for Dak?
Looks like the #Cowboys are practicing some read-option stuff right now.— Marcus Mosher (@Marcus_Mosher) July 31, 2023
A good look at the varying body types at running back.
CATCH OF THE DAY
Deep cross by Simi Fehoko in traffic (full team drills), Dak escapes pressure to the right and hits Simi in stride for first down and more.— Patrik [No C] Walker (@VoiceOfTheStar) July 31, 2023
Simi cooking today. #Cowboys
PICK OF THE DAY
One important note to monitor over the next day.
Sam Williams spent time talking to head athletic trainer Jim Maurer before heading into the locker room. Did not appear to be limping or anything.— Todd Archer (@toddarcher) July 31, 2023
