Moorman says he has never missed a game, hopes not to now, as Cowboys consider punting options

Punter Brian Moorman said he is rehabbing aggressively to try to play against the Ravens after injuring his hamstring warming up for practice Wednesday.

“I haven’t ever missed a game,” he said. “I hope not to now. But that’s just how it goes. You’ve got to take those things in stride and hopefully bounce back quick. I’m an eternal optimist. I’ll try and stay optimistic and do what they tell me to do and look to try and get back as quick as I can.”

Coach Jason Garrett said the Cowboys want to bring in punters for a tryout in case neither Moorman nor Chris Jones (knee) is ready to go Sunday.

Place kicker Dan Bailey is another option, but the Cowboys would rather have a punter. Bailey punted in emergency duty last year against Philadelphia.

“He’s a very good athlete, and he’s a very poised guy, so if we need him to do that in a given situation, although not ideal, he’s capable of doing that,” Garrett said.
