Stop us when you’ve heard this one before: High-scoring Cowboys veteran has back problem, may need someone to step in for him.
This time, however, it isn’t just Tony Romo.
According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Cowboys might need to bring another kicker in this week after Dan Bailey felt a back injury flare up against the 49ers.
They didn’t have a kicker tryout on tap when coach Jason Garrett talked to reporters, but that clown car might be rolling into Dallas soon.
“We don’t have anything scheduled right now,” Garrett said. “But that is certainly an option as the week goes on.”
Bailey missed a 47-yard field goal last week, his second miss in two weeks. He did hit a 22-yarder and all three extra points, but misses are rare for Bailey.
He’s hit 89.9 percent of his field goals in his career, best in the NFL — which makes him like the Dak Prescott of kickers, or something.
