MRI reveals hip strain for K David Buehler, will sit out against the Chargers on Sunday

 Cowboys kicker David Buehler underwent a magnetic resonance imaging exam on his ailing right hip. The results confirmed the original diagnosis of a hip strain and he will sit out Sunday's game against the Chargers, a source said.

It is a setback for Buehler, who is competing with rookie Dan Bailey and Kai Fobath for the kicking job. Bailey only kicked off in the preseason opener against the Broncos. An errant snap cost him a PAT opportunity.

Against the Chargers, Baily will get a chance to do it all and prove that he can handle the prime-time spotlight.

Buehler is listed as day to day. He has not kicked since injuring the hip Monday. So if things go well, he could be back kicking again next week.

Fobath has not kicked since the Cowboys signed him Aug. 2. He has a quadriceps injury.
