Cowboys dial back Saturday's practices after a rash of injuries

The Cowboys changed the schedule for their rookie minicamp after a rash of injuries in Friday's two practices. The rookies worked without helmets in the two-a-day practices Saturday, with each practice lasting only 45 minutes.

The walk-through-type practices came after several players missed Saturday's work with injuries. The Cowboys added Texas defensive end Reggie Wilson as a tryout player before Saturday's practices. 

“We just want to make sure the numbers were right,” Garrett said of the scaled-back practices. “We could’ve functioned in practice today and pushed them through it but felt it was better just to make sure we got the quality work in.” 

Garrett said the plan is to dial things back up for Sunday morning's practice, with the rookies again wearing helmets.
