The Titans placed K Sam Ficken (groin) on IR, knocking him out for at least the first 3 games of the season. Michael Badgley will kick in his place. He's a viable Week 1 fantasy option in a likely shootout vs. the Cardinals.

Titans K Sam Ficken (groin) was added to the injury report on Friday and is questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Cardinals. Tennessee signed K Michael Badgley, so there must be real concern about Ficken's availability. Avoid the situation in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

The Titans claimed K Sam Ficken off waivers. He was dumped by the Jets on Friday but will now compete with K Tucker McCann for the starting job in Tennessee. Avoid the situation in fantasy drafts until a winner emerges.

Jets K Sam Ficken (groin) is doubtful for Week 7. Practice-squad K Sergio Castillo figures to be promoted for Sunday’s game against the Bills. Avoid the situation in fantasy lineups.

The Jets have released K Kaare Vedvik and signed K Sam Ficken. Vedvik missed a FG and an XP in the Jets' 1-point loss to the Bills on Sunday. Ficken made just 3 of 6 FG attempts in fill-in duty for the Rams over the past 2 seasons. Look elsewhere for your fantasy K.

Packers ST coach Shawn Mennenga said Mason Crosby will battle Sam Ficken for the kicking job, adding “we’ll see who the best man will be.” A calf injury has kept Crosby -- Green Bay's kicker since 2007 -- out of training camp. Ficken, though, is just 3 for 6 on FG attempts through 2 seasons. A healthy Crosby should earn a roster spot, but his current status makes him someone to avoid in early drafts.

The Rams have released K Sam Ficken, who made just 1 of 3 FGs over the past 2 weeks. K Greg Zuerlein isn't ready to return from his groin injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, so we'll see who the Rams sign.

UPDATE: The Rams have signed K Cairo Santos. With a career 84.1% FG conversion rate, he'll be a viable spot starter for however long Zuerlein remains out.

The Rams have signed K Sam Ficken after K Greg Zuerlein injured his groin in pregame warmups yesterday. The Rams aren't expected to place Zuerlein on IR, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, but it looks like he'll miss time. Zuerlein owners need to add a replacement off the waiver wire this week.

UPDATE: Rams HC Sean McVay said Monday that Zuerline will be out “at least a few weeks.”
