Report: Folk could be exiting Dallas

From Ed Werder of ESPN.com:

The Dallas Cowboys' concerns regarding erratic place-kicker Nick Folk have forced the team to again consider potential options for replacing him, according to team sources.

Folk has missed a league-high 10 field-goal attempts, and his failure on a 26-yarder in New Orleans that could have clinched Saturday's upset of the Saints has reinforced internal concerns that Folk's issues are mental. Some within the organization think his miss demonstrates that he cannot be trusted on kicks of any length, the sources said.

The Cowboys are reluctant to release Folk because they believe he can eventually be effective again. Since he underwent offseason hip surgery, the team might consider placing him on injured reserve so that he might work through his current problems and return next season.
