We are well into the second week of training camp for the Dallas Cowboys, but numerous questions still remain to be answered before the start of the 2013 regular season.
To this point, there's been a steady flow of both new elements and old, as the Cowboys attempt to avoid missing the postseason for a fourth consecutive year. This unfortunate development, if it comes to pass, would be a first for owner and general manager Jerry Jones.
Dallas has a total of five preseason games to play prior to hosting the New York Giants in the team's season opener on Sunday, September 8 in Arlington, Texas. Each of these games will determine the fate of newcomers to the franchise in addition to veterans that have been around for some time.
The following is a look at some of the top observations we have seen so far in Cowboys camp, with the first preseason game coming up this Sunday at Fawcett Stadium in Canton, Ohio. This has been a very competitive camp so far, and we can expect to see some surprises all the way to the very end.
