  • Cowboys' Dan Bailey: Expects to suit up Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bailey (groin), who is questionable for Thursday's game against the Chargers, expects to play in the contest, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports. "Hopefully I'll be back out there," Bailey said Wednesday. "I mean, I had a good week in practice last week, obviously kicked before the game Sunday just to get the work in, so I'm feeling pretty good." Indeed, the first inkling Bailey was trending toward a return happened prior to Sunday's loss to the Eagles, when he attempted field goals during pregame warmups. He proceeded to practice on a limited basis this week, but his availability Week 12 may come down to a game-time decision. Even if he ends a four-game absence Thursday, his replacement, Mike Nugent, may still be active as an insurance policy.

  • Cowboys' Dan Bailey: Questionable Week 12
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bailey (groin) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Chargers, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. Recent trends indicate a return is possible for Bailey. First, he attempted field goals during warmups ahead of Sunday's eventual loss to the Eagles. In ensuing practices, he was listed as a limited participant Monday through Wednesday. A pregame warmup may be the final test to achieving active status Thursday, but if Bailey is held out again, Mike Nugent will handle all the kicking reps for a fifth straight game.

  • Bailey (groin) was able to test the strength of his leg on field-goal attempts during warmups Sunday prior to the Cowboys' 37-9 loss to the Eagles, Matthew Martinez of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. "I'm definitely better than I was," Bailey said after the game. "It's still kind of a day-to-day thing." Bailey missed his fourth straight game in Week 11, with veteran Mike Nugent once again handling kicking duties for the Cowboys. Nugent has been a capable replacement with a 7-for-9 mark on field-goal tries and an 8-for-8 success rate on extra points, and could stick on the Cowboys' roster to handle longer kicks and kickoffs if Bailey's leg isn't at optimal strength once the latter is deemed ready to return. Before Bailey's status for the Thanksgiving Day game against the Chargers is determined, however, the Cowboys will likely want to see how he fares during practices this week.

  • Cowboys' Dan Bailey: Ruled out again
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bailey (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports. As expected, Bailey will miss a fourth consecutive game, leaving Mike Nugent to handle kicking duties for Dallas. With the Cowboys also playing on Thanksgiving as customary, it seems likely Bailey will miss at least one more game.

  • Cowboys' Dan Bailey: Not practicing Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bailey (groin) won't practice Wednesday, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports. 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 in the coming days, leaving Mike Nugent to once again handle the kicking duties.
