DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) – “Let me just say this: I’m frustrated because you would expect players to, and I understand injury, but he has known all along how to prepare and how to get in shape and how to prepare himself and be ready to be a kicker,” Jones told Josh & Elf on his weekly Jerry Jones Show on The Fan.
The Cowboys placed Buehler on injured reserve Thursday, a day after Buehler re-aggravated the injury. The kickoff specialist had been back for only two games after missing the previous four.
“Now it’s frustrating to have your kicker injured. So he’s a valuable asset, especially with the rules as they are right now, we’re going to be playing some key away games out in the weather. We’d like to have him kicking in them because he is a better kickoff guy than [Dan] Bailey. So I’m very frustrated. It is his job to stay ready to play and prepare himself so those kinds of things for what he’s got to do don’t come up.”
