Texans Released Kicker Matt Ammendola

Houston Texans signed kicker Matt Ammendola earlier this week. But his deal with the franchise only lasted a few days.

On Saturday afternoon, the Texans officially released Ammendola.

Ammendola missed one of his two field goal attempts on Thursday against the San Francisco 49ers.

He missed Thursday's preseason finale because of a short-term injury.

Now that Ammendola has been released.

He will be elsewhere for an opportunity.

Ammendola appeared in 11 games for the New York Jets last season. He was 13-of-19 on field goals and 14-of-15 on extra points.
