Zane Gonzalez Released By The 49ers

Tuesday, September 5, 6:14 PM

San Francisco 49ers kicker Zane Gonzalez (calf) has been released by the team in order to clear some cap space on Tuesday. The 49ers placed the veteran kicker on IR last week as they pared their roster down to 53 players and he is now free to sign with any team, although, that may be difficult with his current injury. 2023 third-round pick, Jake Moody (quad) is expected to be the 49ers starting kicker once the regular season begins but he's dealing with an injury himself. San Francisco signed Matthew Wright as a backup if Moody can't suit up on Sunday at Pittsburgh. The 49ers are loaded at pretty much every position group on their roster but kicker, as it stands right now, is not one of them. They may need to bring in another reliable veteran kicking option if Moody's recovery takes longer than expected.

Younghoe Koo Will Kick In Week 12

Friday, November 24, 1:34 PM

Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo (back) upgraded to a full practice on Friday and has been removed from the final Week 12 injury report. Koo will be active and kick for the Falcons despite not practicing on Wednesday with a back ailment. The Falcons even signed kicker Matt Ammendola as insurance earlier this week in case the 29-year-old Koo wasn't able to play this Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Koo is one of the most reliable kickers in the NFL, as he's missed just one field-goal attempt and one extra point this year. However, due to the Falcons' sluggish offense and instability at the quarterback position, Koo has mostly been a low-end kicking option in fantasy lineups. Hopefully Desmond Ridder returning under center for Atlanta will help them move the ball more consistently.
