Play of the day: Wide receiver Brice Butler ended practice catching a fade pass on third and goal from the 4 from Kellen Moore. Cornerback Duke Thomas was looking for an interference call but Butler was able to beat his jam and go up for Moore's pass for the touchdown.

Today's injury report at camp: Tight end Rico Gathers suffered a concussion after an inadvertent helmet to helmet collision with safety Kavon Frazier. Gathers and Frazier were going for a Cooper Rush pass and came together in the middle of the field. Gathers remained down for a little bit but was able to walk off the field. His status for Saturday's game is not clear.

Overheard at camp: Dez Bryant is hoping Ezekiel Elliot will be able to play at the start of the season even as the runner faces a suspension. "You can't rule Zeke out just yet," Bryant said. "He's got an appeal and we're going to wait and see about that. Zeke's still out here practicing, still going hard. We're still preparing (as) if we're going with him and that's what we're going to do."

Dak: No added pressure with Zeke suspension

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott believes that veteran RBs Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris will make the most of their opportunity with Ezekiel Elliott being suspended.

The Cowboys worked out cornerbacks Dejaun Butler, John Green and Julian Wilson. The Cowboys are dealing with a number of minor injuries at cornerback and need numbers to help get through practices.

The Cowboys will sign tight end M.J. McFarland, who had been with the team in the offseason program. Connor Hamlett will be waived/injured with a broken fibula. With Jason Witten not practicing three consecutive days and James Hanna and Geoff Swaim working back from surgeries, the Cowboys needed depth at the position to help get through practice.
