Gavin Escobar battling shoulder injury

IRVING, Texas -- When the standard is Jason Witten, it can be difficult to measure up. Witten has played through a number of maladies in his 11 seasons, missing just one game as a rookie because of a broken jaw. He returned earlier than many suspected from a ruptured spleen two years ago. In last week’s preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, Witten’s fellow tight end, Gavin Escobar, suffered a shoulder injury after making a 37-yard catch.

Tony Romo ready for season

IRVING, Texas – How much Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo plays Saturday against the Miami Dolphins has not been finalized, but Romo feels like he is ready for the regular season. Romo saw 16 snaps of action last week against the Baltimore Ravens in his first action since undergoing back surgery in December, completing 4-of-5 passes for 60 yards and a touchdown. Typically the Cowboys’ starters do not play in the final preseason game, which means this will be Romo’s final action before the Sept.

Melton (groin) needs preseason action

IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Henry Melton will play at some point this preseason. The question is whether that happens this weekend in Miami or in the preseason finale against the Denver Broncos. The Cowboys believe Melton needs the work because he is coming off a knee injury that sidelined him for the final 13 games last season with the Chicago Bears. The Cowboys sat Melton for the preseason opener as a precaution, and a groin injury sidelined him for Saturday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

ARLINGTON, Texas – Tony Romo’s first action since undergoing back surgery on Dec. 27, 2013 has to be deemed a success and not just because he was able to make it through 16 snaps, including penalties, of action unscathed.   The Cowboys lost 37-30 to the Baltimore Ravens, but Romo completed four of his five passes for 80 yards in two series of work in the first quarter, including a 31-yard touchdown to Dez Bryant.   There was a fumble on a handoff exchange with DeMarco Murray that Courtney Upshaw returned 26 yards for a score on the first drive.

Colin Kaepernick needs to play more in the preseason

Colin Kaepernick at the 49ers’ practice with the Ravens on Sunday. (AP)What stood out in the 49ers’ 23-3 loss in Baltimore was not the team’s overwhelmed defensive line. Because of injury and the need to rest players, that part was predictable. However, the 49ers’ quarterbacks inability to scan the field was an issue. That’s why the 49ers need to play Colin Kaepernick more in the upcoming preseason games. Kaepernick might need to carry this team while two of their best players in linebackers, NaVorro Bowman and Aldon Smith, are out. With those huge pieces missing, the 49ers can’t...

Ahmad Dixon impressive vs. Chargers

OXNARD, Calif. -- So much of training camp for young players fighting for a roster spot is momentum. Rookie safety Ahmad Dixon built momentum based off his 12-tackle performance in the Dallas Cowboys' preseason loss to the San Diego Chargers last week, but a concussion has kept him out of practice the last few days and coach Jason Garrett said the team hopes to have him “back by the end of the week.” That would allow Dixon, one of the team’s five seventh-round picks, to possibly play against the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday, but without any practice time.

Notes: Staley vs. Suggs; ‘brotherlies’ between teams; injury news

Joe Staley. (AP) OWINGS MILLS, Md. – What’s the best part of practicing against the Ravens? The answer is easy for 49ers left tackle Joe Staley, who routinely faces an All-Pro outside linebacker: “It’s good to go against someone besides Aldon (Smith),” he said. When it noted that he still had to go head-to-head against Baltimore outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, a six-time Pro Bowler, Staley smiled. “Yeah, it’s good to go against someone besides Aldon,” he said. “Aldon’s the best in the NFL.” Suggs may not be Smith, at least in Staley’s estimation, but the 31-year-old...
