Cowboys | Vanderjagt doing better

Rob Phillips, of, reports Dallas Cowboys PK Mike Vanderjagt (groin) is doing better. Vanderjagt kicked in practice for the second consecutive day, Tuesday, Aug. 29, and Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells is hopeful Vanderjagt can play in Thursday's preseason finale against Minnesota, Aug. 31. "I'm hoping he could do field goals for sure, maybe not all of them," Parcells said of Vanderjagt, who sat out the last two games as a precaution. "And I would really like for him to see if he could kick off, maybe at least once. But I don't want to do that at the risk of kind of putting him back where he was. That's going to be his call." The head coach said Vanderjagt kicked off 10-15 times at "80-85 percent" in practice. Parcells wants to see if Vanderjagt can handle kickoffs and prevent the Cowboys from using an extra roster spot on a specialist, likely PK Shaun Suisham.
