BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Veteran punter Brian Moorman has signed with the Dallas Cowboys a day after being released by the Buffalo Bills, the player's agent says.

Ron Raccuia said Moorman travelled to Dallas and signed with Cowboys on Wednesday night. Moorman is expected to fill in for Chris Jones, who was injured on a roughing-the-punter penalty in a 16-10 win over Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Dallas hosts Chicago on Monday night before entering its bye week off.

Moorman is a two-time NFL Pro Bowl selection who spent his entire 11-plus seasons in Buffalo before being abruptly cut by the team.

Moorman set two career franchise records in Buffalo by averaging 43.92 yards a punt and handling the most punts (862).
