Steelers carrying extra kicker

Posted by Chris Brown on December 7, 2016 – 4:51 pm

Last week Pittsburgh K Chris Boswell sustained an abdominal injury late in the week and was unable to kick last Sunday, prompting the Steelers to carry K Randy Bullock on their roster. He kicked in last Sunday’s win against the Giants contributing three field goals on three attempts and an extra point in the Steelers’ 10-point win.

Bullock may have to be at the ready again this week. Boswell did not practice Wednesday as the abdominal injury is still an issue.

Ben Roethlisberger was limited in practice Wednesday, but it was not injury related.

Player Pos Injury Participation Wednesday
Chris Boswell K Abdomen DNP
Ramon Foster G Not injury related DNP
Javon Hargrave DT Concussion DNP
Darrius Heyward-Bey WR Foot DNP
Shamarko Thomas S Concussion DNP
Ben Roethlisberger QB Not injury related LP
DeAngelo Williams RB Knee LP

Jets sign K Bullock; Folk to I-R

Posted by Chris Brown on November 10, 2015 – 4:41 pm

The Jets knew they had to sign a kicker this week after Nick Folk went down with a strained quad in his kicking leg last Sunday against the Jaguars. On Tuesday the Jets signed free agent K Randy Bullock.

Bullock was last with the Houston Texans, but lost his job due to inconsistency and was replaced by Nick Novak. Folk was surprisingly moved to injured reserve, as initial reports did not believe the injury to be season ending.

New York is also expected to activate CB Dee Milliner off the short term injured reserve list at some point before Thursday night’s game against the Bills.
