Drew Bledsoe skipped his turn, running on the outside before heading to position drills. A veteran can get away with that, but if it were Terrell Owens, then much more would've been made about it. • Rookie nose tackle Samuel Taulealea, kicker Shaun Suisham and new kickoff guy Tyler Fredrickson took a dip in the hot tub before the evening practice. • Mike Vanderjagt missed two field goals Monday, giving him three in two days. Before his last miss even hit the ground, he groaned, "Oh, my God." • The hit of the day belonged to safety Abram Elam, who blew up tight end Tony Curtis on a run to the left. It was such a big hit that the whole secondary yelled Elam's name and prompted an "attaboy" from coach Bill Parcells. Later, Elam drilled receiver J.R. Tolver too hard and drew Parcells' wrath. • Parcells broke out a new T-shirt for camp. This one reads: Every day is hump day. It includes a picture of a camel. Parcells said the first five-day stretch of camp is the toughest on the players mentally and physically. • The play of the day belonged to rookie safety Pat Watkins . After initially biting on a run play, Watkins, 6-5, was able to cover enough ground on a flea-flicker to intercept a Tony Romo pass. • After rookie tight end Anthony Fasano was hit by safety Roy Williams, cornerback Terence Newman yelled, "That's a love tap, 47." Some love tap. • Tolver and safety Keith Davis got into a brief skirmish. Parcells hates those dust-ups because he doesn't think they are part of the game. Defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer got on Davis for it, too. • For the first time in training camp, Parcells' news conference didn't come with a question related to Owens. LINK T.O. Watch: Good blocking [SIZE=+1][/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]02:11 AM CDT on Tuesday, August 1, 2006 [/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]By TODD ARCHER / The Dallas Morning News[/SIZE] Keyshawn Johnson took pride in his blocking. He wasn't afraid to mix it up with defensive ends and outside linebackers on running plays. On Monday, Owens did a pretty good Johnson imitation. During a run, Owens put his 224-pound frame in the way of defensive end/linebacker Greg Ellis, who weighs 270 pounds, to open a hole. The block was so impressive that it drew a low-five from receivers coach Todd Haley. Later in the same drill, Owens had some words for Thomas Johnson after Johnson was beat on a run, "You're still in bed 92. You're not awake."
