You can hear a lot of things at training camp.
You don’t often hear Jason Witten’s voice ringing out in anger from the huddle: “Shut the —- up!”
But anybody within 100 yards of the huddle on Thursday heard just that. Stunned, everyone wondered, “What was that about?”
“Aw, nothing personal. It’s just part of being in the huddle,” Witten said after practice. “I don’t really want to talk about it.”
Well, coach Jason Garrett did say he wanted vocal leaders. Witten is vocal. But the well-respected “Senator” isn’t often vocal like that.
Of course, 12 days of camp with three to go before a game can add stress to any practice.
“Hey, look. It’s time to compete, it’s time to go,” Witten said. “Wasn’t anything personal. Just excited to be out there playing.”
Sure was a lot of excitement for one practice.
