    Not happy about it, and wish him well, but at least that ends this.

    If this team ever gets back to one kicker and one punter, I don't know what I would do with myself.

    I guess his horsing around with Rowdy last week aggravated his injury.

    Interesting they re-signed Loper instead of moving Dwayne Harris (or another WR) to the active roster. I think (confirmation anyone?) Harris has been taking first team special teams snaps this week, indicating he is going to play on Sunday.

    I think they didn't want to release him, so they're using this injury as a way of shutting him down for the rest of the year without potentially losing him to another team.

    Wonder if they'll sign another kickoff specialist considering how much they value that position

    Do we really need to hold on to Buehler? So now we'll have two kickers on injury lists--and a punter likely heading there, meaning we'll have three kickers and two punters next offseason

    I question the validity of this 'injury', but hopefully this shuts the door on the two kickers fiasco once and for all.

    sometimes I question this organization with its moves or lack thereof.

    Wonder if Chris Jones can do it. Would make more sense to keep him in case Mcbriar's injury gets him again

    From NFLdraftscout:

    Analysis
    Positives: Right-footed kicker who gets power by taking an aggressive swipe at the ball. Gets plenty of height on kicks, even from 40-plus yards out. Solid 52-55 yard range. Consistent route to the spot, keeps his head still, clears his hips and follows through for maxium height and distance. Solid end-over-end ball movement with a slight draw. Equally dangerous from either hash mark, as well as down the middle. Mentally strong, does not let the pressure eat him up; kicked 51-yard game-winner against Oregon State in 2010 after missing from 46 and 49 yards earlier.

    Negatives: Accuracy dropped in 2010, going three-for-seven from 44-49 yards. Does not handle kickoff duties (though he did have 150 touchbacks in 188 kickoffs in high school). Gets tight with his swing on occasion, bringing his hips through too quickly and overhooking the ball. Lack of elite leg strength may hurt him in colder weather; his kicks lose trajectory in the cold, as well.
