The Dallas Cowboys appear intent on creating ways to have the upper hand on their NFC East opponents.
A large number of Dallas players are forming a separate virtual training camp bubble at a hotel near the team's practice facility to prevent spreading COVID-19, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Todd Archer.
While the bubble could help fight the pandemic in their community, players also believe it will help preparations under new head coach Mike McCarthy.
One source told ESPN the majority of Cowboys would be staying at the five-star Omni Hotel. Players are not mandated to stay at the hotel, but it was strongly suggested by coaching staff.
Dallas joins the New Orleans Saints as two teams setting up its own bubbles to help keep themselves and cities safe.
Receiver Jon'Vea Johnson and cornerback Saivion Smith landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list since league-wide testing began, but both players rejoined the active roster this week. Star running back Ezekiel Elliott also tested positive for the coronavirus in June.
