Harrison Butker might not return for the Chiefs’ Week 4 game against the Buccaneers, but Matt Ammendola will not kick for Kansas City if Butker can’t.

The Chiefs waived Ammendola from the practice squad.

Kansas City lost to the Colts 20-17 as Ammendola missed a 34-yard field goal wide left and an extra point wide left. He made 26-yarder.

Butker injured his ankle in Week 1 and missed part of that game and the past two games. Safety Justin Reid took over some of the kicking duties in the season opener.

The Chiefs surely will work out kickers this week, signing one to the practice squad.

  1. Every KC fan just let out a sigh of relief. I couldn’t believe KC ran a fake FG until Ammendola’s next kick was a 34 yard miss (indoors no less). The next questions have to be about Dave Toub, special teams coach who has a great reputation but: 1) he chose to sign Ammendola over a plethora of other kickers; 2) he put Sky Moore back there who made 2 mistakes on punts in the 1st half; and 3) he had to be the one who greenlighted the fake. Thats a lot of bad decisions that I don’t want to see show up during the playoffs

  2. Chiefs’ GM Brett Veach should raise h ell with Roger Goodell about the appalling field conditions at the Arizona Cardinal stadium which led to Harrison Butker’s injury.;;there is simply no reason it should not be safe. The initial response from the Cardinal front office was nonresponsive and lame.
