Bailey connected on two extra points and all three of his field goal attempts, including a 53-yarder, in Sunday's dramatic 35-30 win over the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Dallas got into a strange two-point conversion battle with Pittsburgh (the two teams were a combined 0-for-6 on them) which resulted in Bailey losing out on a couple of PATs, but otherwise it was another productive game for the nearly automatic kicker. As long as Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott are the engine powering the Cowboys' offense, Bailey should continue to see plenty of scoring chances.

Bailey converted all three of his field-goal attempts as well as each of his three PATs against the Packers on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey didn't even get a chance to kick a field goal in Week 5, but received three of them Sunday, his second-most this season. He's now 11 of 13 on the season, tied for 10th in the league in field goal conversions, and hasn't missed any of his 18 PATs all year. He's now set to enjoy the Cowboys' bye week, but Bailey will be back in action against the Eagles in Week 8.

Bailey (back) is listed as active Sunday in Green Bay, Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey played in Week 5 after a back injury contained him to just one limited practice. This week, he logged full showings in each session, so there wasn't much worry about his availability. Field-goal chances should be aplenty Sunday against a Packers defense that has allowed 2.5 attempts per game this season.

Bailey (back) is listed as active Sunday against the Bengals, the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Practicing in a limited capacity Friday, Bryant must have convinced the coaching and training staffs that his sore back would hold up to game action in Week 5. If he suffers a setback during the contest, safety Jeff Heath is the Cowboys' emergency kicker.

Bailey (back) is expected to play Sunday against the Bengals, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Cowboys elected to proceed without signing another kicker throughout the week as Bailey feels well enough to kick Sunday. It appears it'll take some sort of pregame setback to keep the kicker out of the Week 5 contest.

Bailey (back) was a limited practice participant Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, David Helman of the Cowboys' official website reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coming off back-to-back absences, Bailey at least managed to get in a partial practice Friday, suggesting he still has a shot to play in Sunday's game. However, the Cowboys have been working out other kickers, so it's no sure thing Bailey will play. Even if he does suit up, Bailey may not have his usual range for longer field-goal attempts.

With Bailey dealing with a back issue, the Cowboys plan to work out Robbie Gould and Kai Forbath, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey's back issue kept him out of practice Wednesday, so his Week 5 status is worth monitoring as Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff against the Bengals approaches. If the Cowboys end up adding another kicker, Bailey would then become a risky lineup option this weekend if his situation turns into a game-day call.

Bailey (back) was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Bailey has struck true on all 11 point-after attempts this season, he has missed one field goal in both of the past two games. In the aftermath of Sunday's win at San Francisco, owner/GM Jerry Jones said that the culprit was back tightness, which reveals why the ever-reliable Bailey has been less so of late. According to head coach Jason Garrett, the Cowboys are giving Bailey a day off Wednesday with improved health the end game. Whether that comes to pass remains to be seen, but Bailey has two practices left this week to prove himself to the training staff.

Cowboys owner/GM Jerry Jones expects Bailey (back) to play in Sunday's game against the Bengals, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones recently revealed that Bailey has been playing through a back injury, perhaps explaining why one of the most accurate kickers in league history missed a field-goal attempt both of the past two weeks. While his range may be somewhat limited, Bailey figures to continue playing through the issue, making him a usable option in most leagues. However, owners may find they can do a bit better at the position, at least until Bailey is back at full strength.

Bailey missed a 47-yard field goal for the second consecutive week in Sunday's win over the 49ers, and after the game Cowboys owner/GM admitted that the kicker has been dealing with back tightness, The Dallas Morning News reports. "We were very concerned before the game," Jones said of Bailey. "Not surprised at all that he missed the field goal. Thought that was a pretty good time to check it out. Might not have wanted to try another one during the game -- a long field goal. There's no question that he had a limitation there."

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old has been one of the most reliable kickers in the league throughout his career, but with Bailey at less than 100 percent right now you may want to look to the waiver wire for another option, particularly in leagues that award bonus points for longer FGs.
