    Cowboys punter Mat McBriar has surgery to remove rare cyst
    By Carlos Mendez

    Dallas Cowboys punter Mat McBriar said he should make a full recovery and be ready to play again in the fall after having surgery this week to remove a cyst in his left knee, found two weeks ago, which apparently led to the "drop foot" that caused him to end the season on injured reserve.

    McBriar underwent the surgery on Tuesday at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
    Dr. Robert Spinner, who performed the surgery, said it was a rare condition.

    "He's lucky, and I'm lucky because this is what I've been interested in," Spinner said. "There are lots of reasons why people have drop foot. Most are not related to tumors or this type of cyst."...

    I was hoping we would get Wing, the Aussie punter from LSU, if McBriar was done. But I'll take a healthy McBriar any day.

    I still wonder if we re-sign him or go with our new Punter, Jones, for next year.

    I know we signed Jones to a three year deal, which probably means nothing due to guaranteed money, but IMO the fact we gave him a long deal must mean something.

    Then add in McBriar is a very good punter, and will ask for a Top punter money... Makes me wonder
