Cowboys post open practice slate for Ford Center

Dallas schedule at The Star also includes week-long "Back to Football" event

The Cowboys' training camp will be in Oxnard, Calif., for three more weeks, so most Dallas-based fans will have to wait a bit to see the team up close.

Here are the details from the Cowboys official team site.
