OXNARD (105.3 THE FAN) - The Dallas Cowboys are returning to the practice field on Saturday and there will be a slightly different look to the defense: For the first time all training camp, linebacker Sean Lee will fully participate in a padded practice.

And for the rare time in two years, Randy Gregory will also be in pads, participaating in individual drills.

Following a day off following Thursday night’s preseason-opening loss at the 49ers, Dallas is ready to get back to work. The front office will busy itself working toward a couple of roster moves with the injury news on guard Marcus Martin and safety Marqueston Huff, who look to be sidelined for a time. The offense will be looking to build on the success yet established Thursday behind quarterback Dak Prescott.

And the defense? It looked like a speedy collection of playmakers on Thursday ... and now here come two more of those.

Lee, of course, is an established Pro Bowler and arguably the most important Cowboys player on that side of the ball. The defensive end Gregory, who donned pads for the first time prior to the game, has been doing strength and conditioning work since being reinstated by the NFL after a year-long drug-program ban and essentially a two-year absence.

Lee was a second-round pick in 2010 and you know what you get with him. Gregory was a second-round pick in 2015 ... and with just a week left in Oxnard, you are about to find out what you get with him, too.
