    OXNARD, Calif. -- The Cowboys worked in helmets and shoulder pads again Wednesday. Most of the practice was devoted to what the Houston Texans, Saturday's fourth preseason opponent, do.

    Here are the highlights.

    *Stephen McGee ran the scout team offense vs. the first-team defense. McGee, whenever he faces the first team, is always under pressure. McGee made some good throws under pressure and moved well in the pocket. He avoided a sack to complete a pass to Scott Sicko. Following practice, Tony Romo and Jon Kitna helped McGee on his pocket presence.

    *Alex Barron started with the first team at right tackle while Robert Brewster worked with the second team at left tackle. Barron, who is returning full time to practice after a sprained ankle, received most of the reps with the first team.

    *In the hurry-up offense, Romo misfired on two strong throws, slants, to Roy Williams and Patrick Crayton in the end zone. But he did find Williams on a slant for a touchdown. Kitna was almost picked off in the end zone, but Barry Church dropped the interception.

    *Martellus Bennett did a nice job of beating his defender and catching a back-shoulder fade pass from Kitna.
