INDIANAPOLIS The Dallas Cowboys are expected to split their 2017 training camp between Oxnard, Calif., and their new headquarters, The Star in Frisco, vice president Stephen Jones said Tuesday.
With owner Jerry Jones going into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the team will actually conduct practices in three locations.
The Cowboys will open training camp in Oxnard and train there for two weeks before kicking off the preseason with the Hall of Fame game against the Arizona Cardinals on Aug.3.
They will play on Thursday, have Friday off and conduct a light practice prior to Jones' induction ceremony on Saturday on Aug. 5 in Canton, Ohio.

They will return to California on Sunday and resume camp preceding their second preseason game, likely to be scheduled on the West Coast.
They will then go to Texas and finish camp at The Star in Frisco.
“Not totally decided yet,” Jones said. “But I see us probably more than likely coming back after the second preseason game, the first one out there. We’ll probably play one out on the West Coast and head back this way.”
This will be the third time the Cowboys have split camp. They started in Wichita Falls and finished in Oxnard in 2001. They started in San Antonio and finished in Oxnard in 2010.
The Cowboys finished 5-11 and 6-10 during those seasons, respectively.
