Buccaneers waive struggling kicker Kyle Brindza

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Kyle Brindza has missed his last kick for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The young kicker's struggles the past two weeks cost him his job Monday, a day after the rookie from Notre Dame missed two field-goal attempts and an extra point during a 37-23 loss to NFC South rival Carolina.

Brindza also missed three field goals and an extra point the previous week in a 10-point loss at Houston, making him 2 of 7 on field goal tries with two missed extra points against the Panthers and Texans.

The Bucs (1-3) will look at potential replacements Tuesday and sign Brindza's successor before practice Wednesday.

Tampa Bay hosts Jacksonville (1-3) on Sunday.
