Cowboys kicker Nick Folk is recovering from surgery to repair a torn cartilage in his hip. The Cowboys said today that Folk should resume light kicking work in about eight weeks. They’re hopeful he can handle full kicking work in 12 weeks, around the start of training camp.

The Cowboys picked USC kicker David Buehler in the fifth round of the draft last month. Folk had surgery Tuesday in Colorado to repair a right hip labral tear, which can be caused by repetitive motions like kicking. He didn’t miss a game the past two seasons.

Folk has the best field goal accuracy rate among active kickers, making 46 of 53 field goals (86.8 percent) in his career.
