Cowboys | Vanderjagt: Sorry kicking

Tom Orsborn, of the Express-News, reports Dallas Cowboys PK Mike Vanderjagt (groin) would not blame his groin injury for his poor performance Thursday, Aug. 31. Asked if the sore groin that forced him to miss two of the Cowboys' four exhibition games had anything to do with the misses, Vanderjagt said, "I'm not going to put it on that. I'm certainly not 100 percent, but you should make a 32-yard field goal in your sleep. Write what you want. It was sorry kicking." The fans who stayed for the extra session certainly agreed. They showered Vanderjagt with boos after both misses and did the same when he jogged onto the field for the final attempt with 11 seconds left. "I don't make excuses for two (easy) field goals from the middle of the field," Vanderjagt said. Asked if Vanderjagt's injury was still an issue, head coach Bill Parcells said, "I don't think so. He kicked all week and he looked fine to me in warmups."
