Not good for the Dallas Cowboys their backup quarterback Kellen Moore broke his ankle while in their training camp. According to reports, while they are at practice he dropped back to pass and got his ankle rolled up on. He was helped off the field since he was not able to stand by himself. His right ankle was put into a soft cast and he was carted off the field.
Third-string quarterback Dak Prescott was the next man up during drills. He took over the second-team offense for the Cowboys at camp.
The injury happened near the end of the team practice. Also Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain has not yet reported to training camp and there are doubts that he will play in the NFL again since it has been confirmed that his suspension for 10 games is not for a failed marijuana test but for an opiate commonly referred to as "purple drank" (Sprite, cough syrup and codeine).

It's certainly not good news for the Cowboys since they are losing good people and they needed all the help they can get behind Tony Romo.

Westbrook averaged 23.5 points and 10.4 assists last season, in what was the most efficient year of his thus far tremendous career.

As per tradition, a group of UC Berkeley students ran through Moffitt Library and Main Stacks the Wednesday of dead week naked.
The UC Berkeley Naked Run happens every semester during the week leading up to final exams, fearless UC Berkeley students shamelessly streak through main library while shouting and blowing horns as onlookers cheer them. It seems for these students exposing their privates is about celebrating their freedom on the UC Berkeley campus. It last for 20 minutes.
Others complain about the noise and disruption, and most complain about the naked runners smell. The university has a well established tradition of nude activism, that originated in large part from a push for sexual liberation on campus that occurred around the same time as the Free Speech Movement. Since the 1960s, students have used nudity to make statements on a variety of issues, ranging from rape culture to the clearing of trees near campus.
