The Dallas Cowboys had their final day of padded practice at training camp, and things got chippy.
Dallas Cowboys Training Camp Practice Report
A Chippy Practice
Multiple videos showed two scrums breaking out with various fights between the team.
The most notable names involved were Micah Parsons, Tyler Biadasz, and Sam Williams.
Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn would eventually de-escalate the situation. It is important to note that although these fights were intense, no one was hurt.
Head coach Mike McCarthy talked to the team about knowing better at the end of practice. Patrick Walker’s tweet shows Parsons’ response after that talk.
The most intense practice of #Cowboys camp in Oxnard has ended — two fights and a ton of intense matchups later — all coming together.
McCarthy: “We f*cking know better, fellas. Don’t we? We know better.”

Star of the Show
Today’s star of the show was wide receiver Simi Fehoko. Although Fehoko had a slower start to camp, he is building himself back up.
He hauled multiple catches today and received attention for his play on the field.
Fehoko has put the work in all offseason to build chemistry within the offense, and at this point, it could be a matter of finding his confidence again.
Seeing more of Fehoko in the team’s second preseason game wouldn’t be surprising.
