Cowboys move practice to Highland Park High School

A cold rain forced the Cowboys to alter their practice schedule Thursday, and it could do the same Friday.

With the Cotton Bowl taking place at AT&T Stadium, the Cowboys ended up at Highland Park High School’s indoor facility.

“The rain and the cold and the field, all of those things put together, we just felt it was better for us to go over there and get a good workout inside,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. “I thought our players responded to it well. Just went to work, and we had a good practice.”

It marked the first time the Cowboys have had to move a practice from Valley Ranch since the ice storm Dec. 6, 2014. It was the 14th time the Cowboys have moved a regular-season practice since the collapse of their indoor practice facility in 2009.

“It really didn’t change much,” receiver Cole Beasley said. “We still got a lot of good work in today, and all it did was just shorten our early meetings, which is install. But everybody was focused in, and we executed everything we needed to today in practice. So it went well.”

The forecast calls for a 90 percent chance of rain Friday morning with a temperature of 39.
