In 2012, the Cowboys showed faith in his potential by not resigning McBriar, who was arguably the best punter in franchise history. He entered the season as the starter, but suffered a left knee injury on September 23 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, when he nearly had a punt blocked. On October 14 playing against the Baltimore Ravens, although he was still rehabbing the injury, he was forced to punt with a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament. He was placed on the injured reserve on October 24.
On August 24, 2013, during a preseason game, he was the second player (first Cowboys player) to hit the Cowboys Stadium high definition "jumbotron" scoreboard.
