David Buehler is out with a hip flexor and needs to return quickly to have any hope of securing kicking duties for the Dallas Cowboys.
Veteran Shayne Graham made a 38-yard field goal Saturday night against the Vikings, and the rookie from Oklahoma State, Dan Bailey, made two - from 37 and 41 yards. Graham sent three of his six kickoffs into the end zone.
Buehler is doing some light kicking as he recovers from his hip issue, but with one preseason game left, the competition for the kicking job is turning into a two-man race.
Given that Dallas should have a good offense this year, their kicker could prove to be a valuable waiver wire acquisition at some point during the season.
