The Cowboys signed fullback Ryan Yurachek, who spent last season in Oakland's practice squad and was released in May following knee surgery. To make room for Yurachek, linebacker Justin Phillips was waived. The Cowboys now have two fullbacks on the 90-man roster with Jamize Olawale and Yurachek.

NFL suspends Cowboys' Gathers for one game

The one-game suspension for Cowboys TE Rico Gathers stems from his arrest for marijuana possession last season. If he makes the 53-man roster, he will miss the team's opener against the Giants.

Tight end Rico Gathers has been suspended one game for violating the substance abuse policy stemming from an arrest last year. Gathers is in a fight to make the 53-man roster and has been the fourth tight end during the offseason program behind Jason Witten, Blake Jarwin and Dalton Schultz.

Takeaways from Day 3 of Cowboys minicamp: Offensive coordinator Kellen Moore showed some aggressiveness in his playcalling. In a four-minute situation where the offense wanted to use a lot of clock, he called for a play-action pass on third-and-3 and Dak Prescott found Amari Cooper for a big gain. Later, Prescott hit Randall Cobb on a third-down slant to move the chains … Ezekiel Elliott was given a lighter load on the final practice. Rookie Tony Pollard took the situational work with the first team … Cornerback Jourdan Lewis did not practice because of a tight hamstring. With Byron Jones (hip) and Chido Awuzie (hamstring), not practicing, the top three corners were Anthony Brown, C.J. Goodwin and Chris Westry … Backup quarterback Cooper Rush finished minicamp with another good day. He hit rookie Jon'Vea Johnson with a perfect deep route in team drills, found Lance Lenoir with a go route in two-minute work that led to a pass to the corner to Cedrick Wilson for a touchdown. His best throw might have been when he was rolling left and threw across his body to Lenoir for another touchdown … Jason Witten had two touchdowns in practice, although he would have needed replay to overturn the call on the field for one. Witten appeared to get his feet down on a Prescott pass to the back pylon but the official ruled him out, much to the veteran tight end's chagrin.

As the years wore on, Jason Witten got into a familiar routine when the offseason program ended. He would decompress for a little bit with his friends and family. Now that he's returning from a one-year layoff, he said he will have a different routine. “Yeah, it's been a good offseason for me and making that decision at the end of February, early March, that helps me because I had the whole offseason, but I've still got a lot of work to do, clean up, knock some of the rust off,” Witten said. “These next 5-6 weeks will be really important for me to what I want to accomplish and what I can bring. It know that it's still building for me and I'll approach it much like I did when I was younger in my training in how I go about it.”

Jerry Jones was a spectator at Thursday's final minicamp practice, spending time watching his former position, the offensive line, but the owner and general manager left before the media could ask him questions.

Count Dak Prescott happy to see Carson Wentz receive a four-year, $128 million extension from the Philadelphia Eagles last week. “A guy that deserves it, a guy who has been great in this league. Had an awesome year and potentially without the injury wins the MVP,” Prescott said. “Congrats to Carson. Knowing him personally, he deserves it.” Will his contract happen sooner or later? “It happens when it happens,” said Prescott, who was sporting a Stetson hat after practice. “I've got my cowboy hat on, so I'm a Cowboy let's say that.”

Dak Prescott will get together with a number of receivers at some time in July before the Cowboys fly to Oxnard, California, for the start of training camp. He plans to take a break but not much. “I am not worried about losing the edge,” Prescott said. “I will take a little time off. During that time I will still be taking care of my body, doing the things I need to do. When you feel as I do physically and mentally, you are hungry to keep that going. And you are hungry to get better. The time off will be taken but trust me I will stay with it.”

The Cowboys conclude their offseason program today with their last minicamp practice. The Cowboys fly to Oxnard, California, for camp on July 25. "I think we've had a really good offseason," coach Jason Garrett said. "So many of our players were here well before the offseason program started, working out. The participation and effort level throughout the offseason program has been outstanding. We've laid a really good foundation for our team and we've given ourselves a chance really just because of the approach our players have taken."
