  • Rams waive Sam Sloman after latest missed FG
    Rams waived K Sam Sloman. 

    Advice: He will be replaced by veteran Kai Forbath, whom the Rams signed last week. Monday night was Sloman's last chance, and he responded by missing a 48-yard field goal in domed SoFi Stadium. The No. 248 overall pick of the draft finishes his Rams tenure 8-of-11 on field goals, having also missed three extra points. He was apparently also irking by coach Sean McVay by failing to hit his kickoffs out of the back of the end zone. Still only 23, Sloman will presumably become a fixture on the workout circuit. It is common for kickers to bomb their first NFL gig. Yesterday, 12:01 pm

  • Joey Slye activated, ready for Week 7
    Panthers activated K Joey Slye from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

    Advice: This confirms Slye will play Sunday against the Saints. Slye has made 16-of-18 (89%) field goals this season. Friday, 9:31 am

  • Josh Lambo (hip) activated, will play vs. LAC
    Jaguars K Josh Lambo (hip) was activated from the designated to return list. 

    Advice: Lambo is expected to play this week against his former team, the Chargers. The Jaguars have struggled to find playable kickers in Lambo's absence. He doesn't shape up as a great fantasy option in a game where the Jags are heavy underdogs. Thursday, 1:59 pm

  • Sam Sloman could play Monday vs. Bears
    Rams K Sam Sloman could play Monday against the Bears even after the team signed K Kai Forbath. 

    Advice: Rams head coach Sean McVay said because of the league's COVID-19 protocols, Forbath won't join the team until Sunday, just 24 hours before LA is set to take on the Bears. That leaves Sloman -- who's made seven of nine field goals while missing three extra points this year -- as the team's likely Week 7 kicker. It's a great matchup against a Bears team allowing the NFL's most field goal attempts through six weeks. Thursday, 1:21 pm

  • Panthers place Joey Slye on COVID-19 list
    Panthers placed K Joey Slye on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

    Advice: They also placed backup OL Trent Scott on the list. Neither player has tested positive but were added due to close contact. The Panthers will need to sign a kicker if Slye can't get cleared for Week 7. Wednesday, 8:33 am

  • Rams sign Kai Forbath; Sam Sloman still on roster
    Rams signed K Kai Forbath. 

    Advice: For now, seventh-round rookie Sam Sloman remains on the 53-man roster. The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue believes it may be a "motivational move." Sloman has converted 7-of-9 field goals but shanked 3-of-18 extra points. There could be a mini competition in this week's practices before coach Sean McVay decides on a starter for Week 7 against the Bears. Perhaps not coincidentally, it had been Chicago where Forbath was on the practice squad. Tuesday, 10:51 am
