IRVING, Texas -- The window for Kai Forbath possibly kicking for the Cowboys this year officially closed today even if it never really was open.
The Cowboys will keep Forbath on the reserve/non-football injury list for the season after his 21-day practice window expired today. The Cowboys signed Forbath in training camp despite a quadriceps injury that prevented him from kicking through the summer and early in the regular season.
Forbath, who will continue to rehab and is signed for 2012, was the 2009 Lou Groza Award winner as a junior but dipped as a senior, making 13 of 18 attempts.
Forbath was the Cowboys’ top choice as an undrafted kicker once the lockout ended, but the quadriceps injury led the Cowboys to Dan Bailey. All Bailey has done this year is make 27 of 28 field goal tries, including 26 in a row, which is one shy of tying the team record.
