OXNARD, Calif. (AP) -- The Dallas Cowboys will play their preseason opener without at least six expected starters.
Rookie cornerback Morris Claiborne, their first-round draft pick, will not play Monday night at Oakland. He was back at practice Saturday, but had missed a week because of a sprained left knee and has practiced in pads only twice.
Also out against the Raiders will be two-time Pro Bowl receiver Miles Austin (hamstring), Pro Bowl nose tackle Jay Ratliff (foot), defensive end Jason Hatcher (groin), linebacker Anthony Spencer (hamstring) and center Phil Costa (back).
Receiver Dez Bryant is uncertain to play after leaving practice early Saturday because of hamstring tightness.
The Cowboys plan to be cautious with Bryant, though he did take part in a walkthrough session Sunday before the team left Oxnard for Oakland.
BEST OF MAXIM
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett wasn’t particularly pleased with how his offense performed last night in a 3-0 win over the Oakland Raiders. As reported via Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas, Garrett was short in summary, “We didn’t play with great rhythm.”
“It took us a couple of drives to make some first downs,” Garrett said. “Dez made a good play, a completion...
The time finally arrived last night. It was a long wait, but we finally got to see the Cowboys play their first preseason game of 2012. So what can someone really take out of the first preseason game? It was a game that many starters didn’t play in and many of those who did play won’t even make the team come the final cuts. So, do we go crazy that the offense couldn’t do...
Cowboys VP Stephen Jones Frustrated with Claiborne
Stephen Jones stepped out of the bland world of politically correct and non-revealing football quotes on Friday and made a public statement regarding the toughness, or lack thereof, of Morris Claiborne, the Cowboys' 2012 first round draft choice:
Our young guys got to get healthy," Jones told...
OXNARD, Calif. -- Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones can't envision his legacy without at least one more Super Bowl title. And surely part of that desire involves the thought that most Cowboys fans believe that Jimmy Johnson played a more significant role than Jones in those three titles in the 90s.
Johnson didn't hang around for that third title, but he certainly played...
The Dallas Cowboys open their preseason tomorrow night at Oakland. It makes some sense to head over to DallasCowboys.com for the latest team news.
However, if you visited there at 12:20 a.m. Central time, you would have discovered that the Chicago Bears had taken over the entire site. Here’s a look:

Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway won a Super Bowl at 38, something that is extremely rare by NFL standards. Quarterbacks are usually in their prime during their late 20s and early 30s.
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo turned 32 in April. How much longer will he be in his prime? Could he play as long as Elway, who retired at 38?
Romo told CBS 11's The Score with Babe Laufenberg...
The Dallas Cowboys' 3-0 victory Monday night over the Oakland Raiders to open the 2012 preseason was certainly better than losing 3-0. However, beyond that, let's just say that there are very few things that can be learned that we should take too much stock in for the parts of the roster that significantly decide your season.
From a standpoint of this starter's performance...
Cowboys take on Raiders in NFL preseason action.
What did we learn last night from the Cowboys-Raiders disaster? Both teams have plenty to work on this morning and that you should never gamble on preseason football unless you take the UNDER. The Cowboys won, 3-0, on a 3rd quarter field goal.
Didn’t watch the game? Then you didn’t see the mess that is the Cowboys offensive line. The real bad news for Tony Romo – he gets the...
