Cowboys Camp: Morris Claiborne shining; Alfred Morris to start preseason opener at RB

OXNARD, CA (KLTV) -

It's not 100 percent clear whether or not Dez Bryant and fellow stars Tony Romo and Jason Witten will play a series in the Cowboys preseason opener on Saturday in Los Angeles against the Rams. But, we do know running back Darren McFadden won't play as he continues to recover from elbow surgery.

Rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott likely won't suit up because the fourth overall pick is slowly working his way back from tightness in his hamstring.

That means Dallas fans will get a good look at Alfred Morris. A two-time pro bowler, the former Washington Redskin was acquired this off-season. Morris admits the Cowboys offense hasn't come easy, but first team reps on Saturday should continue to help him out.

    Moody Magic, a term coined by the Abilene Christian faithful to describe a supposed mystical aura around Moody Coliseum that gives the Wildcats a winning edge, is something the Stephen F.

Wednesday night, the 'Jacks cast a spell of their own - one of the defensive variety - to make sure their intrastate rivals wouldn't obtain a second-straight win in the series.
