Report: Medlock Out, Rayner In as Cheifs Kicker


Justin Medlock’s days as the Chiefs’ kicker appear to be over.  There are reports that Medlock was released yesterday, one-day after missing his first real kick in the NFL.  Medlock missed a 30-yarder field goal attempt, wide left, nipping the Chiefs’ opening drive right in the bud.  They went on to commit four turnovers and dozens of flat-out blunders, losing 20-3 to the Texans.  Even though Medlock came back later to make a 27-yarder, it wasn’t enough to keep him in the team’s good graces.  Word is, they’ve signed former Packers kicker Dave Rayner.  “We’re contemplating that,” Herm Edwards said of a possible move. “If we do, we’re thinking about Dave Rayner.”  Medlock could return to the practice squad at some point, though.
