Play of the day: Cornerback Orlando Scandrick came up with an interception of a Dak Prescott pass in the final 11-on-11 drills where the first-team offense and defense competed against each other. Prescott was looking to fit a tight pass into Cole Beasley, but the pass deflected into the air to Scandrick. It was the sixth interception in 14 padded practices for Prescott, who had 219 passes in team and seven on seven drills in camp.

Today's injury report at camp: Defensive end David Irving was back to practice after missing time with an ankle injury. With DeMarcus Lawrence limited, Irving could start Saturday vs. Indianapolis. The following players did not practice: S Xavier Woods, CB Jourdan Lewis, LB Sean Lee, DE Tyrone Crawford, DT Cedric Thornton, DE Benson Mayowa, WR Ryan Switzer, QB Luke McCown, TE Rico Gathers. All but Mayowa are expected to sit Saturday.

Overheard at camp: "The tempo is terrible." Midway through practice, the Cowboys removed their pads and went with shells as they worked through preparing for Saturday's game against Indianapolis. Coach Jason Garrett was not pleased with what he was seeing and let his players know. It was also interesting to hear defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli cheer on the scout-team offense.

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.
