    Calvin Watkins ESPNDallas: Abe Elam has taken the field for the first time in training camp. He's wearing No. 24.

    Calvin Watkins ESPNDallas: Andre Gurode, all 334 pounds of him, playfully knocked down Orlando Scandrick.

    toddarcher: Every OL is accounted for so far except Montrae Holland. Tight lower back knocked him out of walkthru. Not considered serious. [via

    espn_macmahon: Seventh-round pick Bill Nagy is working with the starters at right guard. Montrae Holland (back) isn't practicing

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Team drills about to starter. ... It's the starters, ball on minus-40.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): D comes out in traditional 1-3-7 look. ... Romo hits Ogletree on underneath crossing route. ... Assume this is late-game/half situation simulation

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Romo checkdown to Felix is incomplete. ...Bradie James is lined up 15 yards off of Ball.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Checkdown to Felix. ...

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Strangest prevent D I've ever seen. Ratliff and James are closest defenders to ball, and they were 15 yards back ... Offense ran hook-and-lateral and think went into Cal vs. Stanford mode. ... Play blown dead when Romo got the ball, which is too bad because entertainment had just begun

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Kitna to Martellus on seam route for 30 yards vs. second D. Bennett got open between Church and AOA.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Kitna out to Jesse Holley for 15 yards in front of Abe Elam.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Ball broke up Hail Mary to Bennett in the end zone.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): 1-on-1s and inside run.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Scandrick got his helmet knocked off on the jam and still broke a deep ball to Ogletree ... Austin should have scored on back-shoulder deep ball from McGee. Ball never saw the ball

    toddarcher: Even after losing helmet Orlando Scandrick makes play on deep ball to Kevin Ogletree.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Pretty fade from McGee to Dez for 6 over McCann. ... Crowd gets excited about Miller turning the corner, but there aren't any cornerbacks over ther.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Lee shoots the gap and drops Miller. ... Radway stumbles out of break and can't hang on to out ...

    BryanBroaddus: With Free and Smith on the edge, Phillips and Witten too, offense will do a much better job of getting ball outside and down hill. Athletes.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Nice cut by Miller to get upfield, inside of Albright. ... Witten jukes Elam but fails to make one-hand catch. ... Leong turns around Butler and gets wide open on slant.

    toddarcher: Nice lead block by Shaun Chapas on Phillip Tanner run. Kept his feet moving on Kenwin Cummings.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Ogletree makes a sweet catch on a deep ball vs. Scandrick. Controls it with his right hand on ball thrown behind him and pulls it in. ... Holley goes over Sensabaugh for 6 on a fade. ... Austin gets wide open on crossing route vs. Ball.

    BryanBroaddus: Coleman is stout at the point, If Young doesn't play lower he is going to get stuffed all day. Upper body strength for Coleman impressive.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Goal-to-go in 1-on-1s ... Dez catches hook in front of Randle. ... Romo fade is too far for Cleveland to get it.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Another Romo-to-Dez hook, short of the end zone. ... Team drills again.

    BryanBroaddus: Just noticed Orie Lemon in this inside drill, nice job of reading the block, shedding the guard and filling the hole square and with power.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Romo throws wheel route to Bennett, but Bennett doesn't look until too late.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Romo out to Holley in front of Ball. Spears got good pressure, but Romo stepped up in pocket.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Pressure blows up screen to Felix.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Ratliff gets outside the hash marks to stop Miller in the backfield.

    toddarcher: I have a feeling we are going to say Look at where Jay Ratliff us lined up a lot this year.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Razzle-dazzle doesn't look good. Bryant/Austin handoff on reverse is botched. Chapas recovers for 15-yard loss.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Kitna rolls right and throws to Phillips for a short gain.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Poots adds to stink by dropping a screen.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Butler would have had sack. ... Water break.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Romo goes deep to Ogletree with blitz coming. Good coverage by Ball. Incomplete.

    BryanBroaddus: McCann , Ball and Scandrick in the nickel. Scandrick on the slot blitz gets home clean. He has a real feel for how to get things done. [via Twitter]

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Romo throws hot to Austin. Elam is there to make stop short of sticks.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Alan Ball flagged for holding. Radway still should have caught crossing route.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Randle comes clean on blitz for would-be sack.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Radway drops another one. This ball was low from Kitna, but he needs to catch it.

    BryanBroaddus: Watching Elam double on the outside with Ball, he saw the route quick enough but didnt drive quick enough. Scouts talked about this with him

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Harris can't make catch on corner route. Not a good session for the rookie receivers. He had to extend to get it, but it was a catchable ball.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Another drop. Manny Johnson does it this time after getting open on seam route. Pretty pass from Kitna.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Kitna dumps it to Tanner, who makes a nice adjustment to catch a ball behind him.

    calvinwatkins: No mike Jenkins during these team drills. He's battling a stinger, shoulder might be giving him trouble.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Smoke route to Radway. ... Leong makes a juggling catch on a deep crossing route from McGee. Problem is, he shouldn't have juggled it.

    Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas): Butler beats Young to get to McGee.

    I thought the team looked sharp today, especially Romo and Bryant. I'll give a more detailed summary later when I'm not on my phone.

    I like these recaps, because I don't have to filter through all the garbage in the chats. It is much better to read, anyway. However, I still don't trust ESPN/DMN Dallas to report everything objectively and without bias. I know better.
