Bailey (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Bailey will miss a fourth consecutive game, leaving Mike Nugent to handle kicking duties for Dallas. With the Cowboys playing on Thanksgiving, as always, it seems likely Bailey will miss at least one more game.

Bailey (groin) won't practicing Wednesday, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Monday that the team wasn't counting on having Bailey available for the Week 11 matchup with the Eagles, so the kicker's absence from practice seemingly supports that idea. Expect the Cowboys to officially rule Bailey out for the contest Friday following their final practice of the week, leaving Mike Nugent to once again handle the kicking duties.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett doesn't expect Bailey (groin) to return for Week 11 against the Eagles, Troy Hughes of CBS Radio Dallas reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Cowboys expected Bailey to miss at least four weeks, and Sunday's game against Philadelphia would mark this fourth straight absence. Mike Nugent missed a 38-yard field goal attempt in Sunday's 27-7 loss to Atlanta, but he's at least converted all eight of his PAT tries since joining the Cowboys.

Bailey still hasn't received clearance to resume kicking and is expected to need a few more weeks off to recover from a right groin strain, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey was on the field in full pads for the start of practice Wednesday, but it sounds like he'll mostly be limited to conditioning work for the foreseeable future as he waits for the groin to heal. In a radio appearance Wednesday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that Bailey was "probably looking at another month or so" before he would be able to kick again, according to Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News, a timetable that would be longer than what was initially anticipated when the kicker first suffered the injury Oct. 22 against the 49ers. Mike Nugent has converted all seven of his extra-point attempts and four of five field-goal tries through his two games as Bailey's replacement.

Bailey (groin) is expected to miss at least four weeks, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett was a bit more optimistic earlier this week, saying Bailey would miss at least a couple weeks. It now seems likely he'll be out until some point in December, leaving Mike Nugent as the Cowboys' kicker for an extended period.

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett confirmed Monday that Bailey (groin) would miss "at least a couple weeks," Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected Bailey's right groin strain will result in him missing game action, but with the injury seemingly of the short-term variety, it doesn't appear as though he's a candidate for injured reserve. The Cowboys are expected to work out a number of kickers Tuesday and sign one later in the day, with the victor of the job battle likely stepping into immediate fantasy relevance. Bailey had converted seven field goals and 16 extra points in six games prior to succumbing to the injury in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

Bailey is expected to miss "several weeks" with a groin strain, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

EDGE Analysis

We'll await official confirmation of such an outcome, but those who had been relying on Bailey in fantasy lineups are advised to seek a replacement for him in advance of Week 8. Per Field Yates of ESPN, the Cowboys are expected to work out kickers Mike Nugent, Jason Myers, Sam Irwin Hill and Younghoe Koo.

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett declined comment Monday when asked if Bailey, who exited Sunday's 40-10 win over the 49ers with a groin injury, would be out for an extended period, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports. "We'll just find out more [Monday] and see how [Bailey is] doing," said Garrett, according to Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site.

EDGE Analysis

With the Cowboys winning comfortably over the 49ers, Bailey's departure from the contest following Dallas' second touchdown ultimately didn't prove costly. In Bailey's stead, the Cowboys turned to safety Jeff Heath to handle placekicking duties for the team's final three extra-point attempts of the day, with Heath converting two of them. More information regarding the extent of Bailey's injury should be made available later Monday, but since there's a distinct possibility that the veteran could be held out of the Week 8 matchup with the Redskins, Garrett relayed that the Cowboys plan to work out some free-agent kickers in the upcoming days as a contingency plan, according to Phillips.

Bailey injured his right groin and won't return to Sunday's game in San Francisco, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear when exactly Bailey suffered the injury, but his last snap occurred on the kickoff after the Cowboys' second touchdown of the contest. On their next possession, he was in bad enough shape that head coach Jason Garrett opted for a two-point conversion attempt on the team's third TD. Shortly thereafter, safety Jeff Heath handled kickoff duties, but there doesn't appear to be an emergency option on the roster for extra points or field goals. Expect Garrett to touch on Bailey's health after the game, but Dallas may be in the market for a kicker in the near future.

Bailey connected on his only field-goal try and all three of his extra points in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

A two-point conversion attempt on the Cowboys' final scoring drive deprived Bailey of another extra point. He has yet to miss a kick this season, but a somewhat sluggish start for the Dallas offense has their kicker on pace for a career-low 24 made field goals through the first quarter of the season.
