(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By SCHUYLER DIXON AP Sports Writer The Dallas Cowboys are hoping the first two days of training camp aren't a trend.
It looks a lot like last year when injuries decimated a defense that couldn't hold up late in a season that ended just short of the playoffs.
Defensive end Anthony Spencer can't shake a troublesome knee problem, and backup Tyrone Crawford is out for the season after tearing his left Achilles tendon during the first full workout of camp.
Defensive tackle Jay Ratliff strained a hamstring during the conditioning test.
Tony Romo's starting guards - Mackenzy Bernadeau and Nate Livings - are sidelined for now. So is backup Ronald Leary.
But defensive lineman Jason Hatcher says worrying about a replay on injuries is like a ''cancer for the team.''

Earlier today there was a lot made about Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo being listed 236 pounds, his heaviest since entering the league back in 2003.
Romo down played the weight gain, saying that the figure wasn’t too accurate. He would go on to say that he normally weighs between 227 and 230 lbs. depending on the day. Others like head coach Jason Garrett also down played...

Tony Romo: No-brainer at this position. But as always, Romo enters the season striving to meet expectations that have yet to be fulfilled, despite finishing up his fourth 4,000-yard passing season in the last six years. (One of those two years he missed 10 games with injury.) Romo seems to always have to prove something to someone, and granted its not...
Brandon Carr knows the Dallas Cowboys need to create more turnovers, and that high-priced cornerbacks are expected to provide their share.
Carr says he isn't putting pressure on himself in the second year of a five-year, $50 million contract with $25 million guaranteed.
But he is expecting a big year. He says it's time to ''turn the corner as a player''...
Brandon Carr knows he is the high-priced cornerback for a Dallas defense that tied a franchise low for interceptions in his first year with the Cowboys.
He understands Dallas changed everything but the players on defense, replacing coaches, switching schemes and putting a stronger emphasis on turnovers.
Carr's cool with it - as in calm and seemingly confident.
I’m ready to get at it T…

A whole new season is nearing, and every team and player is anxious to shake off the rust and be in contention for the big show in February. Unfortunately, DE Tyrone Crawford’s first day back to work could be his last for the season before it even starts.
The Dallas Cowboys open up training camp in Oxnard, California. Crawford was doing some tackling...
As training camp is just getting started, I would like to do a quick synopsis of the Dallas Cowboys 4th round draft pick from a year ago, Matt Johnson. Johnson was drafted out of Eastern Washington and at the time, the coaching staff thought that he could have some impact in the secondary. Well unfortunately the injury bug that ravaged the roster got ahold of Johnson and he missed...

The Cowboys are a team loaded with play makers such as Miles Austin, Demarcus Ware, Jason Witten and the very under rated QB Tony Romo, and yet, they haven’t been able to make the playoffs since 2010 and...
Media sessions in training camp are usually a pretty straightforward endeavor. Reporters ask coaches how they think the offseason has gone, and the coaches say how much they're looking forward to the season and they feel great about their teams. Rarely do we actually get a gem from such a session, but that's what happened in Oxnard, CA at the Cowboys' training camp.
With Tony Romo back on the field for the first time since undergoing back surgery in April, the first practice of the Cowboys’ 2013 training camp had all the markings of a feel-good event for the club.
But that was before defensive end Tyrone Crawford was carted off the field Sunday afternoon with what the club fears is a season-ending torn Achilles’ tendon.
A 2011 third-round...

The star quarterback showed up at Cowboys camp on Sunday, weighing just a little bit heavier than in past seasons in this year’s media guide. The team listed Romo at 236 pounds on this year’s camp weigh-in, six pounds heavier than last season.
Romo entered the 2012 season at 230 pounds, which at the time was also the...
