ESPN: Former Oklahoma State kicker Dan Bailey out for ‘weeks’

Dan Bailey, former Oklahoma State kicker and current Dallas Cowboy, will miss significant time with a groin injury, according to ESPN’s Todd Archer.

Bailey suffered the injury while practicing on the sidelines Sunday against San Francisco.

While at Oklahoma State from 2007-2010, Bailey was a major weapon for the Cowboys. He won the Lou Groza Award for Best Kicker in 2010, and was the Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Year that season. Bailey still holds the school record for consecutive made PATs (181) and shares the single-season FG completion percentage record (100).

Bailey currently holds the NFL’s career record for field goal accuracy, at 89.999 percent. He has never missed an extra point in his NFL career.

Dallas is working out Mike Nugent, Jason Myers and Sam Irwin-Hill to fill in for Bailey, Archer’s report said.
