OXNARD, Calif. – Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum is a dinosaur in many ways, and it is the only stadium in the NFL that features a baseball infield.

Calvin Watkins joins Galloway and Company live from Oxnard, Calif., to discuss the latest news from Cowboys training camp.

Cowboys coach Jason Garret said field condition will not play into the game plans for the offense or kickers. But he will have a message for the players.

“Well, the approach is to remind them to get out there early and get your shoes right; don’t let equipment beat you,” Garrett said. “That’s an important thing.

"Having played there, it’s different when you’re on the grass and then get on the dirt. It’s different, so you have to make sure you’re wearing the right stuff to keep your feet and function the way you want to function. As for as substitution, I don’t think it’s going to impact our substitution pattern at all.”
