Phillips Happy With Offense

It is  Jason Garrett's second year as the Cowboys offensive coordinator. In his first season, the Cowboys finished as the third ranked offense in the NFL.

But there is always room for improvement.

Only a week into camp and the Cowboys are trying to find a compliment for Terrell Owens at receiver and tweak Tony Romo's throwing. However, the head coach is already giving his offense an "A."

"I'm comfortable with where we are as far as our offense, as far as execution," Coach Wade Phillips said. "I think you could see Tony and Terrell, Tony and Witten. They are certainly coming out and clicking. They are even in midseason form, it looks like to me with those guys."

COWBOYS CAMP HEADLINES:

* The big buzz in Oxnard Thursday was not a current player but a former player. Quincy Carter. The quarterback hit the field with the Miami Dolphins in a form of a tryout. Carter was released from the Cowboys in 2004 after testing positive for drug use. He currently has played arena ball.

* DeMarcus Ware did not practice Thursday. Ware suffered a hit to the head in practice yesterday and had some dizziness. DallasCowboys.com reports that it is not a concussion.

* Marcus Spears played at nose tackle, with Jay Ratliff at defensive end for a third straight day. Coaches say it is not permanent, they are trying to create more depth.
