Looking Good! Cowboys Veterans Like What They've Seen

The Dallas Cowboys are entered their second full week of camp in Oxxnard, California on Monday and as far as the players are concerned, so far so good.

Veterans said compared to years past, they can already see the level of strength and potential in this year's team.

"I'm pleased for the first week," tight end Jason Witten said. "I think this team has really come together. We have continuity from within. These next couple of weeks, if they can bee as productive as the first week was, we really will be able to build from this team."

"We've got a veteran kind of group in a lot of areas so when we start going we'll go 15 or 16 plays without having a mistake," quarterback Tony Romo said. "That's exciting because you are going to need that when the games start."

Cowboys Camp Headlines... 

* Terrell Owens missed Monday morning's practice to get some more rest but Owens did return to the field for the afternoon practice.

* Terence Newman was reportedly seen jogging on the field Monday. He is still out with that groin injury but showing signs of improvement.

* Veteran outside linebacker Greg Ellis was back in team drills for the first time since last Friday. Ellis has had back problems.

    The John Tyler Lions always seem to look sharp in their uniforms. But thanks to East Texas lawyer Keith Miller, the Lions will look better and play safer. Helmets that advertise lowering the impact of hits, and possibly reduce the amount of concussions, come with a hefty price-tag. Miller's donation of 7,500 dollars, will go to help the lions cover that cost. "Keith Miller's been a big sponsor of John Tyler High School football program for years now.  I know it's...More >>
