Dan Bailey ruled out with groin injury

Dan Bailey ruled out with groin injury”

The Dallas Cowboys are without a kicker for the remainder of Sunday after Dan Bailey suffered a groin injury that has ruled him out against the San Francisco 49ers.

Cowboys strong safety Jeff Heath had mighty big shoes to fill when Dan Bailey, one of the best kickers in the National Football League, went down with a groin injury in the first half Sunday against the 49ers.

And safety Jeff Heath's extra point is GOOD. He has been nothing short of ideal this season, having successfully drilled all 16 extra-point attempts and opening the year 7-for-7 as a field goal kicker.

Since Dallas brought Bailey aboard as an undrafted free agent following the 2011 NFL Draft out of Oklahoma State, he has failed to miss a game. The starting strong safety for the Cowboys did well on his first attempt, kicking it to the goal line where it was returned to just the 14-yard line. Bailey was flawless on two previous extra-point tries as the Cowboys built a 20-3 lead.

Heath kicked in high school, according to ESPN, including a 49-yard game-winner for Lake Orion (Michigan) High School.
