OXNARD, Calif. — Dak Prescott threw two interceptions just a few plays apart in a training camp practice, including an ill-advised pass across the field to a receiver just a few yards from the line of scrimmage. Those picks, and the decisions that go with them, are under more scrutiny after the Dallas Cowboys' quarterback followed his remarkable rookie season with a somewhat pedestrian encore. And Prescott is among those doing the scrutinizing — each night at camp in the film room. By Pro Football Writer Schuyler Dixon. SENT: 800 words, photos.


ST. JOSEPH, Mo. — The fastest member of the Kansas City Chiefs was drafted in the fifth round a couple of years ago. Second-fastest? He went in the sixth last spring. Now, if defensive back Tremon Smith can perform anything like Tyreek Hill during the Chiefs' preseason opener against Houston on Thursday, general manager Brett Veach and coach Andy Reid will have hit on something special. Both Smith and Hill were from small schools. Smith was an overlooked-if-undervalued quarterback coming out of high school who landed at Central Arkansas because bigger schools were unwilling to give him a chance. Hill began at Oklahoma State before a domestic violence incident landed him at West Alabama. By Dave Skretta. SENT: 730 words, with photo.



— BKN--MAVERICKS MOVES — The Dallas Mavericks have waived Chinanu Onuaku as expected four days after acquiring the center in a trade with Houston. The Mavericks also signed free agent guard/forward Ryan Broekhoff. SENT: 100 words.
