IRVING, Texas (AP) â€” Dallas Cowboys punter Micah Knorr will be sidelined three to six weeks because of a fractured lower left leg.
He is the fourth starter Dallas has lost in the last three weeks and the only one who might return before the season is over.
The team plans to bring in Barry Cantrell, who competed with Knorr for the punting job during training camp, and possibly others leading to Sunday's game against Baltimore.
Knorr sustained the hairline fracture during the Cowboys' 23-6 win over Cincinnati last weekend. Bengals defensive end Reinard Wilson ran into Knorr while trying to block a punt during the second quarter.
Knorr also kicked off was the holder on field goals and extra points.
He joins defensive tackles Chad Hennings and Leon Lett, wide receivers Joey Galloway and Raghib Ismail and safety George Teague on the bench.
