NFL World Reacts To Monday's Kicker Release News
The Kansas City Chiefs released a kicker on Monday afternoon. The team announced that Matt Ammendola has been cut from the practice squad. That came after he struggled mightily against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday afternoon. Ammendola missed an extra point at the beginning of the game, which caused the Chiefs to go for two when they scored their next touchdown. He then missed a 34-yard field goal after making a 26-yard one shortly after he missed the extra point. That led to head coach Andy Reid calling a fake field goal later on in the game, which didn't go as planned.
