Mon, Mar 10, 2014 01:04:00 PM "would expect" Chris Jones to return as the Cowboys' punter in 2012.

A partially torn ACL sent Jones to injured reserve in Week 8. Veteran Brian Moorman filled in, but is now a free agent. Jones is signed for an affordable $555,000, making it likely he'll be back.

ESPN Dallas has reported that the Cowboys will not sign a punter and will stick with Chris Jones (knee) heading into the Sunday game at Baltimore.

With Brian Moorman (groin) out and Jones banged up, Dallas worked out three punters, Daniel Sepulveda, T.J. Conley and Chas Henry, to prepare themselves in case Jones wasn't available. None of them were signed, and Jones punted during the open media portion of Friday's practice indicating he's likely to play. The Cowboys leave themselves with no safety net in case Jones reaggravates his knee sprain.

The Cowboys reportedly believe Chris Jones has a chance to be a "special" punter.

Dallas signed Jones to a three-year deal upon promoting him from the practice squad late in the season. The inference is that free agent Mat McBriar, coming off surgery to remove a cyst in his leg, may have lost his job for good.

Cowboys promoted P Chris Jones from the practice squad.

On the roster for two games earlier this year, the rookie out of Carson-Newman will handle punting duties for the Cowboys' most important game of the season after Mat McBriar landed on injured reserve Saturday.

Cowboys waived P Chris Jones.

It's a sign that Mat McBriar has recovered enough from nerve damage in his left foot to handle punting chores in Week 11. Jones averaged 43 yards on three punts against the Seahawks two weeks ago.

Cowboys promoted P Chris Jones from their practice squad.

Starter Mat McBriar (questionable) suffered a left foot injury in last week's game against the Eagles, and the Cowboys do not want to risk having Dan Bailey handling punting duties again.
