Iffy Vanderjagt Causes Trickle-down Effect On Cowboys Roster

IRVING, Texas (AP) _ As angry as Bill Parcells was over Mike Vanderjagt missing two short field goals in the preseason finale, the coach says he never considered releasing his new kicker. But the misses did have an impact on the rest of the roster. And there's a chance Vanderjagt will miss the opener Sunday at Jacksonville. The Cowboys opted to keep a second kicker on the 53-man roster. That was something Parcells hated doing because of the domino effect it had. Parcells says he felt he had no choice but to keep backup kicker Shaun Suisham after Vanderjagt said he wasn't 100 percent when he missed kicks of 32 and 33 yards in overtime against Minnesota. Vanderjagt has been dealing with a groin injury most of training camp.
