5 sounds of music

Cornerback Brandon Carr’s music playlist contains more than 10,000 songs. He has been downloading since he was in high school.

“I love my music,” Carr said. “I put music as different times in my life. I am always surfing the net for new music.”

Here are five of his favorites:

1“I like Drake’s Take Care. His album.”

2“Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail.”

3“Kendrick Lamar. Good kid, m.A.A.d city.”

4“I still love Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne.”

5“Chris Brown’s song Don’t Think They Know, featuring Aaliyah.”

Not so jolly

A cherry-flavored Jolly Rancher was to blame. Safety Barry Church said he was chewing away happily on his prized candy recently when his tooth chipped.

It was no big deal at first. “I felt it a little, on and off, but it was nothing crazy,” Church said.

Until Monday. When he woke up.

“The pain was crazy,” he said.

Next stop: the dentist. The procedure: a root canal. The result: a day away from practice Monday.

Given the choice, Church said he’ll take a day of camp over a root canal.

But the day away had everybody poking fun.

“I took the punches and kept going,” Church said, smiling.

Church likes his candy. He just won’t be eating Jolly Ranchers anymore.

“I have to stick to the soft stuff — Starburst, Skittles, stuff like that,” he said.

He returns to the dentist for more work Monday.

Memories of Allen

Tony Romo and Jason Witten were rookies when Larry Allen was in his 10th season. Allen, who goes into the Hall of Fame on Saturday, didn’t say much even then, but when he did, players listened.

“Larry would make us go get the stuff that he needed for different times, whether it was can of dip or whatever it was,” Romo said. “‘Hey, Romo, you got that dip? Nah, I’ll go get it right now.’ He was great. He was always good to us.”

Romo, now in his 11th season, was asked if he orders rookies around now like Allen once did to him: “No. I try to keep that to a minimum ... Just Witten.”

Quote board

“I’m probably just blessed most of all. Just blessed to have this opportunity I have in front of me. I just don’t want to be the person that had it in front of him and then blew it. I’m going to take the best strides I can to be the best and be prepared for it and be ready to go when my number’s called.” — Rookie safety J.J. Wilcox, after getting some first-team snaps in practice

“Tomorrow, actually, I turn 31. Everybody says, ‘He’s 31. He can’t still do what he needs to do.’ But just turn the practice tape on and let that carry over into the game and proving a point to yourself day in and day out that you still can do it. The age might be going up, but ... I’m still young.” — Defensive end DeMarcus Ware, on turning 31 Wednesday
