Baylor Bears Making Strides at Cowboys Minicamp

Frisco, TX - Terrance Williams was not present on Wednesday when mandatory mini camp opened at the Star in Frisco, as he continues to rehab from his ankle injury suffered last season.

With Williams recovering from injury another former Baylor receiver K.D. Cannon is getting a few extra reps during practice, trying to find his way as a Cowboy.

"K.D's doing a nice job," head coach Jason Garrett said. "We got him at the end of last year. He probably practiced with us for a week or so. He's got really good speed. his biggest challenge is understanding his assignments as he's learning this new system."

Cannon feels like he's starting to grasp what is expected of him in Dallas.

"I'm picking it up a lot better than previous team's I was on, so that's a plus," he said. "I'm really just taking notes every day, and just studying every day."

Another former Baylor athlete Rico Gathers continues to make strides transitioning from basketball, and coach Garrett likes his progress.

"Rico's made a lot of progress," Garrett said. "In some of the route-running that comes more naturally, I think he's learning more about schemes, our schemes, the scheme's he's facing. The blocking schemes as well as the technique."

The Cowboys will have two more days of Mini camp before breaking up prior to training camp.
