Overheard at camp: Over the last two seasons Jason Garrett leads the players in jumping jacks at the end of pre-practice stretching period. It's a little old school, but the coach wasn't pleased with the performance Thursday morning and made the players do them twice. "Ninety guys need to be doing jumping jacks," Garrett said. "If 89 guys do it, we are going to do it again."

Rookie report at camp: Fourth round pick Ryan Switzer left practice early after straining a hamstring while making a catch of a Kellen Moore pass during seven-on-seven drills. Switzer had to reach for the pass and grabbed for his leg as he made his way back to the huddle. He was taken to the medical tent for observation and did not return. Jason Garrett was not sure of the severity of the injury. First-rounder Taco Charlton suffered what could have been a slight stinger early in practice. After taking some time to rest, Charlton took some reps in pass rush deals as well as 11-on-11 work.

Play of the day at camp: Anthony Brown opened training camp a year ago with a pick of Tony Romo. On Thursday, he was able to get Dak Prescott in team drills. After a run fake to Ezekiel Elliott, Prescott was looking for Dez Bryant on a slant but he was nudged slightly as he made the throw causing the pass to sail. Brown came down with the interception and crisscrossed his way down the field as the offense pursued.

College Football Hall of Famer Johnnie Johnson is quick with witty commentary when it comes to his sons, Kirk and Collin, playing at their beloved Texas. "I do tell them all the time, everywhere around you at the University of Texas, you have to be careful because there are pictures on the wall of your dad watching you every step of the way," Johnnie Johnson said. "They hate it when I tell them that."
