Cowboys, Chargers to practice together

GRAPEVINE, Texas -- The Cowboys will close their California portion of training camp on Aug. 21 in San Diego following two days of practice against the Chargers.

Owner and general manager Jerry Jones said a few logistics, like lodging, need to be ironed out.

“I don’t see anything there that would keep that from being a done deal,” Jones said.

The Cowboys and Chargers meet in Week 2 of the preseason on Aug. 18 and after a day off the teams will practice Aug. 20-21 at San Diego’s facility. The Cowboys will return home Aug. 22 and are expected to hold a night practice at Cowboys Stadium on Aug. 23, leading up to the preseason home opener against St. Louis on Aug. 25.

The Cowboys and Chargers practiced against each other at Valley Ranch and Cowboys Stadium leading up to a preseason game in 2011.
