Cowboys' Witten: 'Jitters were real' in return

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten made his preseason debut on Saturday after coming out of retirement and admitted to having "jitters" in his first game action since Dec. 31, 2017.

After last week's preseason opener against the San Francisco 49ers, Jerry Jones said Tony Pollard has shown he could be an every-down back. On Sunday, the owner and general manager was asked if Pollard is the best negotiating ploy the Cowboys have in talks with Ezekiel Elliott. “Zeke who?” Jones joked. Pollard had 51 yards on the Cowboys' first drive that ended with his 14-yard touchdown run. “He knows exactly what to do, and he knows how to do it, so it is, he goes out there and he plays to that level,” Jones said. “If he continues this through the next several weeks, he's going to be right in the middle of it early, and that will really complement what we're doing with Zeke. Not replace that. And I mean that, not replace that. Nobody's getting cute here, but it'll certainly be a great complement … I can picture those guys same sets at the same times out there and really giving those defenses fits.”

The Cowboys have ended a five-game preseason losing streak with their 14-10 win against the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday. Cooper Rush did his best to win the backup quarterback job behind Dak Prescott with a touchdown pass to Devin Smith. Next up for the Cowboys: a flight home and their first training camp practices in Texas starting on Tuesday.

Devin Smith with a 6-yard touchdown catch on a fade pass from Cooper Rush is just a continuation of what has been a strong past week for the receiver. The former second-round pick of the New York Jets has made the most of his opportunities with Amari Cooper nursing a sore heel and days of rest that have been given to Tavon Austin and Randall Cobb while in Oxnard.

Jason Witten on his first game action since the 2017 regular-season finale: “It felt really good. I was very anxious to get out there and play. It is just the next step in the comeback,” Witten said in halftime quotes from the team. “I worked really hard to get back in shape. I hold myself to a high standard, so I can say it was not perfect. I got a little antsy early but had a big third down conversion on an option route. That was big. Thirteen plays, it was a good drive for us offensively. I think this is just the next step.”

Mike White's first two preseason appearances have not gone well. He was sacked three times last week vs. San Francisco and was intercepted in the third quarter vs. the Rams to end his night with 30 yards on 7-of-13 passing. In the preseason, he is averaging 3.5 yards per attempt. The battle to be Dak Prescott's backup Cooper Rush has not materialized but could the Cowboys look for help elsewhere?

The Cowboys trail the Los Angeles Rams, 10-7, at halftime. The Rams' touchdown came off a muffed punt. Brett Maher hooked a 52-yard field goal attempt wide. The defense gave up three pass plays of 10 yards and the backup defenders missed too many tackles. On the good side: Dak Prescott completed 5-of-5 passes, Tony Pollard had 51 yards of total offense, including the 14-yard touchdown run and Jason Witten had a third-down catch. For all of the bragging the Cowboys do on their depth, it never really reveals itself in the preseason.

Dak Prescott completed all five passes for 64 yards on his only drive of the night with the highlight coming on a 31-yard deep ball to Michael Gallup. He mixed the ball to his running backs, receivers and tight ends on the drive. He also took one sack. Prescott is now 9-of-9 for 87 yards in two preseason games, 21 plays.

Put those points on Reggie Davis' muffed punt but couple interesting thoughts on the defense: Jaylon Smith was not on the field at the end of that drive. Perhaps he had a small play count because of knee soreness that knocked him out of one practice. The Cowboys are alternating Anthony Brown and Jourdan Lewis in the slot with the first group in the nickel defense.

Jason Witten's first catch for the Cowboys in his return picks up a first down on third-and-6. Same as it ever was. On the next play, Tony Pollard runs 14 yards for a touchdown. The rookie running back touched the ball six times on the drive. He had five runs for 42 yards and one catch for 8 yards.

Jason Witten will play tonight for the first time since the 2017 regular-season finale when the Cowboys take on the Rams. Before the game he was able to catch up with his former head coach, Wade Phillips, now the Rams defensive coordinator.

Checking in early from Aloha Stadium where the Cowboys play the Rams in their second preseason game. The Cowboys starters are set to play a certain amount of snaps but the Rams left 20 of 22 starters in California. One thing to watch: the heat. It's in the upper 80s and humid and the Cowboys' sideline will be on the sun for most of the game.

Tyron Smith did not take part in the last padded practice in Oxnard, California, and he did not make the trip to Honolulu with the Cowboys. Smith had been getting days off during camp as he has battled back, elbow and knee injuries in the last few seasons. With a long flight from Los Angeles to Hawaii and then back to Dallas after Saturday's preseason game, the Cowboys opted to send their Pro Bowl left tackle home with Pro Bowl guard Zack Martin, who is also dealing with a back issue. Cameron Fleming will replace Smith Saturday.

Cowboys' camp notes: The Cowboys concluded their 12th and final full-padded practice of their time in Oxnard on Wednesday. The team will have a closed practice Thursday morning before flying to Hawaii for Saturday's preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams … Unofficially, Dak Prescott completed 149 of 236 passes in team and seven on seven drills while in Oxnard and was intercepted five times. Prescott scored a touchdown on a quarterback keeper on fourth down, much to the dismay of the defense because they can't tackle the quarterback. One thing that stood out about Prescott on Wednesday: his accuracy on the move. He completed three of four passes outside the pocket … Before getting into a scuffle with Cameron Fleming, Taco Charlton was in a long conversation with coach Jason Garrett during practice. Charlton and Fleming went at it briefly before being separated. It was just the second “fight” of camp … Corner Chidobe Awuzie made a diving interception of a low throw from Prescott to Michael Gallup a play after a pick by Xavier Woods was wiped out because of a penalty … Donovan Olumba worked with the first team nickel defense at cornerback with Anthony Brown limited in the practice … With Jeff Heath getting a day of rest, Kavon Frazier started at safety next to Woods … Brett Maher made all six kicks in special teams' work and a point-after attempt in team drills. He ended camp by making 14 straight attempts.
