The Dallas Cowboys have cut placekicker Nick Folk and replaced him with Shaun Suisham.
Suisham previously kicked for Dallas in 2005 and 2006. He was
released on Washington on Dec. 8 after missing several kicks - the
same problem that cost Folk his job Monday.
Folk clanged the right upright on an easy 24-yarder that would
have put away Saturday night's 24-17 victory against the unbeaten
Saints. Instead, the Dallas defense had to make one more stand
against one of the league's best offenses.
Folk leads the NFL with 10 misses, going 18 of 28 and missing
seven of his past 11.
