Cowboys placed K David Buehler (groin) on injured reserve, ending his season.

It was no longer feasible for the Cowboys to carry both Buehler and Dan Bailey on the roster. And with Bailey 20-of-21 on the year, the decision was easy. The Cowboys, who are infatuated with Buehler's big leg, will likely give him another chance to battle for the job next season.

Cowboys declared declared K David Buehler, QB Stephen McGee, FB Tony Fiammetta, G David Arkin, G Derrick Dockery, DE Jason Hatcher, and DE Clifton Geather inactive for Week 6 at New England.

Tony Romo is expected to take another pain-killing shot while wearing a kevlar vest to protect his ribs. After putting in full practices all week, Miles Austin, Dez Bryant, and Felix Jones are as close to 100 percent as they've been in nearly a month.

Cowboys K David Buehler (groin) is not expected to return until after Dallas' Week 5 bye.

Rookie Dan Bailey will handle field-goal duties for the second straight game against the Lions this weekend. You should be able to do better for a Buehler fill-in.

Cowboys declared K David Buehler, WR Miles Austin, CB Orlando Scandrick, OG Derrick Dockery, DE Clifton Geathers, RB Phillip Tanner, and OG David Arkin inactive for Week 3 against the Redskins.

Stephen McGee is active, so the Cowboys have three quarterbacks "up" in the event Tony Romo aggravates his rib injury. Rookie K Dan Bailey will handle kickoffs and long field goals with Buehler down. Buehler tested his strained groin during pre-game warmups, but didn't show enough to the medical staff.

David Buehler might attempt some long field goals for the Cowboys.

Dan Bailey has won the placekicker job, but the Cowboys won't let Buehler's big leg go to waste. This kicking situation is one to avoid in fantasy.

Owner Jerry Jones hinted Thursday night that K David Buehler (hip) will make the final roster.

Jones wants every kickoff in the end zone, which is Buehler's specialty. What's not certain is whether the Cowboys will also carry Shayne Graham or Dan Bailey as a field-goal specialist. Dave Rayner appears to be out of the running after missing two kicks in the finale.

David Buehler (hip flexor) is losing ground quickly in the Cowboys' kicking competition.

Shayne Graham and Dan Bailey both had impressive showings Saturday with Buehler sidelined. It's noteworthy because Buehler remains high on many non-Rotoworld cheat sheets even though this competition is "turning into a two-man race," according to ESPN Dallas.

Cowboys K David Buehler has been diagnosed with a right hip strain after missing practice time this week.

Buehler is listed as day to day, and the Cowboys hope to have him back next week. Fantasy leaguers should steer clear until Dallas' kicking situation clears up. Buehler is competing with rookie Dan Bailey.

David Buehler is expected to compete with undrafted rookie Dan Bailey of Oklahoma State now that Kris Brown has been released.

Bailey converted 50-of-63 attempts for the Cowboys, including 20-of-22 in 2010. It's a vote of confidence for Buehler, who figures to be the odds-on favorite entering training camp.
