Mid-Day Report: Heat Rising With Broncos In Town

Who's Hot:
Cowboys outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware hasn't been blocked very much by his own team here in training camp this summer. But the Broncos offensive tackles didn't have much of an answer either. Ware routinely blew past his opponents, whether it was one-on-one drills or the team period.

Who's Not:
Broncos offensive tackle Jacob Rogers had a chance to show his former team just what kind of player he actually can be. Rogers, a second-round pick of the Cowboys in 2004, was released in training camp in 2005 amid continuous knee problems. But instead of proving himself for a few days here at practice, Rogers is hurt again, suffering from a right knee injury.

You Should've Seen:
During a team drill in the morning practice, Broncos cornerback Domonique Foxworth thought he had an interception in his grasp until Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens jumped over the corner and snatched the ball away from him for a spectacular completion from Tony Romo.

Wade's Best:
"'I don't care what your contract says, if we don't win, we're getting fired.'" - Phillips recalling his first year in San Diego with his current defensive coordinator Brian Stewart and when the Chargers head coach Marty Schottenheimer told them in the very first meeting.
