Greg Zuerlein placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

FRISCO, Texas – The Cowboys placed kicker Greg Zuerlein on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Tuesday.

Currently, the club does not have a backup kicking option on the active roster or exhibition squad heading into Sunday’s game against the Falcons, but it is clear that they will try to tackle their draft at some point this week.

It is unclear if Zuerlein has a chance of being back in time for Sunday’s game. His timeline to return to the active roster depends in part on whether it’s a positive test or a close contact situation. The Cowboys did not disclose that information.

Kicker Lirim Hajrullahu was put on training camp late in the preseason and again with the training squad for a week after Zuerlein missed two field goals and an extra point in the season opener against Tampa Bay.

In eight games this season, Zuerlein scored 14 of 18 field goals (77.8%) and 21 of 23 extra points.
