Cowboys aren't concerned about their special teams, even though they have struggled

The Cowboys aren't concerned about their special teams. Everything, they say, will be under control once the season starts.

"No, I'm not concerned about our special teams any more than I am any place else," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said.

Rich Bisaccia is in his first season as the Cowboys' special teams coach. The Cowboys believe in his system. But they have not been less than special in the preseason.

"I think once everything gets finalized, we’ll be rolling pretty good," punter Chris Jones said. "I’m not worried. I don’t think Dan [Bailey], LP [Ladouceur], nobody that’s in our specialist unit is worried about anything. It’s just wait until crunch time, and we’ll get rolling pretty good I think."

The Cowboys allowed a 75-yard punt return for a touchdown, a 53-yard kickoff return, missed a 50-yard field goal and had a 10-yard holding penalty Saturday.

In the previous three preseason games, they had a field goal blocked, lost two fumbles on punt returns, allowed a 51-yard kickoff return and taken two 15-yard penalties.
