IRVING, Texas -- Making instant evaluations off two rookie minicamp practices can be dangerous to a person’s health, but here are some observations from the Cowboys sessions Friday:

** Kyle Wilber is active. That’s what the Cowboys thought they were getting in the Wake Forest linebacker. He has a quick first step off the ball and was able to track down running back Darrell Scott from behind in the morning practice.

** Defensive end Tyrone Crawford had a would-be sack of Nathan Dick in the first workout thanks to being unblocked, but he was able to get up the field in more competitive situations.

** Linebacker Caleb McSurdy was able to knock away a Larry Smith pass to tight end James Hanna but on the next play was not as fortunate, with Hanna getting a step on him on an out cut.

** Troy Woolfolk is listed as a cornerback but he played safety Friday. He intercepted a pass that was tipped by linebacker Adrian Hamilton. On the next play Wilber deflected a pass that Lionel Smith intercepted.

** It was difficult to get a read on the wide receivers and tight ends because the timing of the passing game was a mess.

**Tight end Andrew Szczerba made a nice one-handed grab down the middle of the field in the morning practice but was unable to finish the session because of an injury. He practiced in the afternoon. Wide receiver Donavon Kemp sat out of the afternoon workout.

** Cornerback Isaac Madison made a nice breakup of a deep ball from Smith to Cole Beasley.

** Like he did at training camp and all through last season, Jason Garrett had officials at practice. At different times flags were flying, including a handful for lining up offside.
