Titans cut Santos after missed FGs; Parkey to sign

Micah Hyde, Jordan Phillips, Matt Milano and Marcus Mariota will all play key roles in Sunday's game

A former CFL all-star is about to make his National Football League regular season debut.

Buffalo Bills starting quarterback Josh Allen has been cleared from the NFL's concussion protocol and is expected to play against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Santos missed kicks of 50, 36, 53 and 33 yards against the Bills. One of those kicks was blocked.

It is good to see that the front office and coaches weren't afraid to make the move here and fans know that if Santos is flawless during his two games in Nissan Stadium (or if he just misses one on Sunday) then Tennessee would be sitting at 4-1 instead of wallowing in the pits of despair at 2-3.

The #Titans have released kicker Cairo Santos. Succop was placed on injured reserve due to a knee injury, and is not eligible to return until after Week 8.

The 27-year-old Parkey has made 99 of 118 field-goal attempts in a career that included stops in Cleveland and Miami. To replace him, they're bringing in former Chicago Bears kicker Cody Parkey, as first reported by Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. The team is flying Parkey, who worked out for Tennessee last month, in Monday night and he is expected to sign Tuesday. But he is more infamously known for missing a would-be game-winning field goal in last year's NFC Wild Card round.

Will Santos find another National Football League (or even XFL) team in 2019?
