OXNARD, Calif. (105.3 THE FAN) – I noted to Cowboys secondary coach Jerome Henderson following Tuesday’s training-camp practice that largely featured just three cornerbacks, saying he “hands his hands full.”

“No,” Henderson quipped, “my hands are empty.”

That’s about to change in time for Thursday’s preseason opener at San Diego as the club is adding a couple of free agents, cornerback Korey Lindsey and safety Johnny Thomas.

These players epitomize the phrase “camp bodies.”

Lindsey was a seventh-round pick out of Southern Illinois in 2011 and has spent time with six NFL teams in his three years. Thomas played for Oklahoma State and went undrafted in 2012.

Dallas started the day with only four cornerbacks available for practice: veteran Orlando Scandrick and youngsters B.W. Webb, Terrence Mitchell and Tyler Patmon — who injured himself during practice.

“It was crazy,” Webb told me. “We sure got a lot of reps.”

That will be the case for the Cowboys against the Chargers, too, as the club waits for Brandon Carr’s return from his mother’s funeral and hopes for full health from Mo Claiborne (knee tendinitis).

“It’s like the third year I am missing time,” said Claiborne, who has indeed missed all three exhibition openers in his NFL career. “But I am in a better place than I was the last two years.”

Right now, the same can’t be said for the rest of Henderson’s guys.
