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.
