    ARLINGTON – Communication issues are the reason why the Cowboys are having so many pre-snap penalties, coach Jason Garrett said.

    Six of the Cowboys’ 13 penalties in Sunday’s 16-10 win over Tampa Bay were for false starts (right tackle Doug Free had three, tight end Jason Witten had two and Tyron Smith had one).

    “The communication at the line of scrimmage, we just have to clean up,” Garrett said. “I think some of the other penalties that have happened were almost effort penalties, guys trying to do too much and getting hands up in a face mask or some things that occur in a ballgame. You have to address those as well. We constantly address ‘do your job,’ and sometimes a guy wants to do their job well and get themselves in trouble. The pre-snap penalties we’ve just got to eliminate. We’ll keep working as a coach staff on it.”

    Center Ryan Cook agreed that cleaning up the penalties has to be a priority in practice this week.
