Kicking Saga Over With Release Of Grammatica

mgramaticagame.jpgMartin Grammatica was released from the injured reserve list on Tuesday officially giving the job to rookie kicker Nick Folk.  He was placed on the list during preseason injuring his hamstring in the game against the Texans.  Grammatica was signed late last year after a disappointing Mike Vanderjagt was released and made six of eight field goals in five games, the most memorable being the winning field goal against the Giants that saved their chances to make the playoffs.

 The veteran kicker was released without an injury settlement and can sign with any other NFL team, however he isn’t eligible to be re-signed by the Cowboys for 10-weeks due to being placed on their injured reserve list. 

In other news, CB Anthony Henry was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts Sunday night against the Bears.  Henry had two interceptions returning the second one 28-yards for a touchdown giving the Cowboys a commanding 27-10 lead they would never relinquish.  Henry also deflected four passes and had four tackles in the game.  He now leads the NFL with four interceptions giving him 26 in his career and six multi-interception games.   He also shares an elite Cowboys record with the great Everson Walls of making two interceptions in back-to-back games.
