Given the early looks in scout team, don't look for Ezekiel Elliott to play Saturday with Darren McFadden taking the first team work. Jaylon Smith is working as the first team middle linebacker.

The pads are coming off at Cowboys camp. They went through five team periods in pads and now will go with shells as the prep work for Indianapolis begins.

Jason Garrett called this Ezekiel Elliott look-a-like put to the field to lead the Cowboys in jumping jacks at the end of stretching. Marvin Thompson made the drive up from Los Angeles for practice in full Elliott garb. After a couple of missteps Elliott helped him out and gave him a chest bump when it was over.

Cowboys preparing for their final practice in Oxnard. It will be quiet. The speakers that blared music all summer have been sent on a truck to Frisco, Texas.

Six weeks (October 1) until the qualifying offer (QO) for restricted free agents expire (unless extended). There are still five players that can sign the QO; Nerlens Noel ($4.2M), Mason Plumlee ($4.6M), Nikola Mirotic ($7.3M), Alex Len ($4.2M) and JaMychal Green ($2.8M). A player will see still be a RFA past October 1 but with no qualifying offer on the table. A player signing the QO would have veto power to any trade.

Today's injury report at camp: Linebacker Anthony Hitchens suffered a bloody nose after getting hit in the face but was able to return without any issue. Rookie cornerback Marquez White (hamstring) returned to practice on a limited basis and recorded an interception. Defensive end David Irving missed his second straight day with an ankle injury.

Play of the day at camp: Cole Beasley had as productive a day as he has had all camp, but he might have made one of the catches of camp too. In seven on seven drills, Beasley was working the back line of the end zone and Dak Prescott threw behind him intentionally away from the defender. Beasley was able to twist backward, make the catch going to the ground and keep his feet inbounds.

Overheard at camp: Executive vice president Stephen Jones said linebacker Jaylon Smith will be on a "pitch count," of sorts when he makes his debut Saturday against the Indianapolis Colts. Jones said the Cowboys like everything Smith has done in training camp but the team wants to be smart with him as he plays his first game since the 2016 Fiesta Bowl.
