This week marks the final week of practices in Oxnard.
The Dallas Cowboys were back in practice after their first preseason game on Saturday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Yesterday’s practice was more relaxed with a lot of drill work and walk-throughs.
Walk-thru mock game for the #Cowboys today. No sign of Nashon Wright or Malik Jefferson at practice today that I can see at the moment. McCarthy told us there is “nothing concrete” - Malik has a chance for Saturday while Nashon would be “hard pressed” to go this week pic.twitter.com/enxBDPtlic— Hailey Sutton (@_HaileySutton) August 14, 2023
Here are some of the highlights and plays at today’s practice.
Zack Martin is officially back after a brief spell away as the Cowboys agree to a reworked contract for the future Hall of Fame lineman.
The starting offensive line got together for the first time.
We have a kicker update for Brandon Aubrey. He made both extra point attempts which is a plus.
Brandon Aubrey went 7/8 in FG attempts to start practice — his longest made/attempted being 40 yards (also the distance of his lone miss that went narrowly outside).— Patrik [No C] Walker (@VoiceOfTheStar) August 15, 2023
2/2 from XP distance. #Cowboys
Defense got to work and with 26 days until kickoff, number 26 made some plays.
The Cowboys pass rush came to town.
DeMarvion Overshown keeps showing up.

On the opposite side, Jalen Tolbert continues to make his case for the WR4 position.
And snapping at his heels is Jalen Brooks.
He’s the people’s choice after the weekend, and he keeps making plays today.

Tony Pollard came in as well to get some work.
Brandin Cooks makes an impressive play.
CATCH OF THE DAY
And finally some roster news to end the day.
Micah Parsons said he got kicked in the leg and he’s going to get it looked at.— Calvin Watkins (@calvinwatkins) August 15, 2023
Of note, WR David Durden is back on the practice field today after suffering a concussion earlier in training camp. #DallasCowboys— Nick Harris (@NickHarrisDC) August 15, 2023
Ronald Jones (groin) will be limited, at best, in today’s padded practice— per MM. Sounds like an uphill battle to be available vs. the Seahawks.— Patrik [No C] Walker (@VoiceOfTheStar) August 15, 2023
