DC.com Blog: OTA Practices Wrapping Up This Week

Posted by jellis at 6/9/2009 9:45 AM CDT on truebluefanclub.com

This summer's month-long stretch of Organized Team Activity practices end Wednesday at Carrollton's Standridge Stadium, with what will be the 12th practice in four weeks.

We'll have our final look at OTAs today, as tomorrow's workout is closed to the media. Next week the Cowboys will have a mini-camp back at Standridge, allowing us access to each of the three practices.

Today we'll be paying attention to Felix Jones, and whether he's getting any better fielding punts. He could be a real threat back there, but he's going to have to be more smooth bringing in the ball than he was when we first saw him last week.

Of course with the Pacman Jones talk that sprung up over the weekend, and Jerry Jones' denial yesterday, it'll be interesting to watch the cornerbacks, Orlando Scandrick and Mike Jenkins, who are battling for a starting job. They've both looked pretty good so far. And here's hoping Jerry will address the media for a third straight week, because you can bet he will get some Pacman questions.

Maybe we even get to see the Cowboys practicing their 'Razorback' set. We'll have the full rundown of practice for you a little later on.

One more thing. If you're the tweeting variety, you can follow Derek Eagleton of The Lunch Break. He'll be posting updates as soon as practice begins at 10:30 a.m. on Twitter.com (@DerekEagleton).
