  • Cowboys practice report From padded practice to one with no helmets

Last month, Jones spoke with reporters at his annual news conference in Oxford, California to open training camp, and was asked if he would support players staying in the locker room during the national anthem.

TMZ caught up with Jones, who told them he is "so proud" of Prescott and "the way he leads the team".

The Cowboys quarterback has come under fire since stating he does not believe the anthem is the time to protest, music to Jones' ears. He responded, "No", explaining, "Our policy is that you stand at the anthem, toe on the line".

Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday that despite going through his first full offseason with the team, Garoppolo wouldn't be treated differently than any other veteran starting quarterback.

And while some hoped Prescott would critique his owner's comments, he did the opposite. "The game of football has always brought me such at peace and I think it does the same for a lot of people playing the game, watching the game and a lot of people that have any impact of the game. It takes away from the joy and to the love that football brings a lot of people".

Regardless of what you think of Prescott's comments - and one way or another, you feel strongly - he's not backing away from them. According to Sports Illustrated the QB said, "I made my statements. It is what it is".
