    Now that the Cowboys preseason schedule has been announced, the big question is how will it affect the team's training camp practices in California.
    The Cowboys open the preseason with a game at the San Diego Chargers during the dates of Aug. 7-10. The final dates and times of the first three preseason games have yet to be announced.
    This game against the Chargers is in keeping with the tradition of playing the early preseason games on West Coast to accommodate the team's training camp practices in Oxnard, Calif.
    The Cowboys usually have their first two preseason games out west while they are there for training camp and then have the last two at home at AT&T Stadium.
    But AT&T Stadium threw the Cowboys a curve a few months ago when the contracted the One Direction concert during the time usually slated for the third preseason game.
    So the Cowboys will return to Texas for the second preseason game against Baltimore the weekend of Aug. 14-18.
    At issue is whether the Cowboys return to Oxnard for training camp after the Ravens game or stay here and finish camp at the team's Valley Ranch training facility.
    The Cowboys have yet to release their training camp schedule but odds are that they will have a short camp in Oxnard and stay here after the Ravens game because the third preseason game is at Miami the weekend of Aug. 21-24.
    It doesn't make financial nor logistical sense to fly from California to Miami.
    The Cowboys will then close out the preseason at home against the Denver Broncos on Aug. 28
