What stood out in the Dallas Cowboys final camp practice?
Monday was the final practice of training camp for the Dallas Cowboys and the last practice session open for the media. The Cowboys will now prepare for their 2020 season opener in Los Angeles against the Rams on Sept. 13.
So far in camp, there has been no shortage of stories. New head coach Mike McCarthy has put his stamp on the franchise as he’s been making small tweaks such as putting the quarterbacks in red jerseys and having a live scrimmage played with no names or numbers on the jerseys.
These might not seem like big things but considering how much this differs from what has happened in the past, it’s a great sign that means the Jones family is allowing their coach to be the decision-maker on the field.
And on the field, there has been plenty to enjoy watching as well during camp. Here we look back one last time at the team’s final session of camp and point out three big takeaways.
Quick Hitter: Something is up with Amari
The Cowboys keep telling us all that everything is fine but everything is not fine. Amari Cooper has been limited in three-straight practices, which is discouraging considering he was battling quad injuries throughout 2019.
To his credit, Cooper played through the pain and had his best season as a pro. However, the hope was he would come into this campaign at 100 percent and ready to really take off. With the season less than two weeks away now, it’s a bit worrisome that he’s not going all out in practices.
