The Dallas Cowboys are getting ready for their first pre-season game on Monday night at Oakland.

 

Cowboys center Phil Costa got hurt on Friday, so David Arkin got most of the work with the first team offense at training camp in Oxnard, California on Saturday.

The Cowboys may bring Andre Gurode back since their top three centers are hurt.

One of the areas that the Cowboys will focus on Monday night is the competition at the third wide receiver position.

Miles Austin is not available (and even if was, he wouldn't play much in the first game).

So look for guys like Kevin Ogletree, former SMU receiver Cole Beasley, and Tim Benford to play a lot.

Also on the list: Danny Cole and Andre Holmes as the Cowboys try to find a replacement for Laurent Robinson.
