Dallas Cowboys training camp updates: Tyrone Crawford taken off of PUP, CeeDee makes a catch, and more



NFL: New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Day 1 of real practices is in the books at Cowboys training camp.

Friday was the first day that the 2020 Dallas Cowboys had a real practice together. The delay in getting real practices together was obviously due to the pandemic, and the way training camp is covered is also very different than ever before.

There is a limited number of reporters at every training camp across the league and there are strict rules on what can and cannot be shared. We have gathered a variety of tweets that encompass what happened at the first Cowboys shell practice of the season.

Get excited.

Tyrone Crawford has been taken off of PUP

This is very good news to hear. Tyrone Crawford has been taken off of the PUP list and what’s more is that he apparently got some work in at defensive tackle.

CeeDee Lamb made a one-handed catch and was working on punt returns

It sure would be nice to see CeeDee Lamb practicing in his Cowboys gear, but do your best to imagine a one-handed grab from him. He apparently went left on it, a reminder the team’s last number 88, Dez Bryant, was left-handed.

What’s more is Lamb was working on fielding punts. Dak Prescott said during his press conference on Wednesday that he overheard Lamb talking about how much he enjoyed special teams, we’ll see how much he’s used there moving forward.

He also fumbled…

It’s day one!

La’el Collins did not practice

It’s early. Don’t fret.

Donovan Wilson got the year’s first interception

The second-year safety seems ready for more opportunities.

Aldon Smith made a play as well

That seems very good.

Cowboys quarterbacks now wear red jerseys

There is no record of any Cowboys quarterback wearing a red practice jersey that I have ever been able to find. Two years ago I asked Pro Football Hall of Famer Gil Brandt why they never wore them, and he said that they just didn’t and he didn’t know why. That has changed in 2020.

Also it seems Dak Prescott might be using a visor on his helmet.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix spoke with the media

We haven’t heard from too many people as it relates to the Cowboys, but on Friday morning safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix spoke with the media over the phone.

There is a new drill for the offensive linemen

We have seen some interesting drills over the years from different position coaches. Apparently we are at the point where the offensive linemen need to work on ball security. You never know!


We are all navigating our new normal as best as we can. These updates are exciting and have us all itching for the real thing. While things remain a bit tentative we should have the annual blue and white scrimmage in a couple of weeks, and that is about the halfway point between now and the regular season.

It’s football season.
