In and out: Hauschka out, Rosas to kick


The Jaguars have a new kicker. Again.

Aldrick Rosas, elevated from the practice squad Saturday, will handle kicking duties for the Jaguars against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday. The team deactivated kicker Stephen Hauschka ninety minutes before kickoff Sunday morning.

Those were the latest in a series of recent moves at kicker for the Jaguars, with the team placing kicker Josh Lambo on injured reserve with a hip injury 11 days ago and waiving/injured Brandon Wright – Lambo's replacement – after Wright sustained a groin injury in his NFL debut against the Miami Dolphins on September 24.

The Jaguars signed Hauschka, a 13-year veteran, this past Monday. He was listed as questionable with knee soreness entering the weekend.

Rosas, a fourth-year veteran, kicked for the New York Giants from 2017-19 and made 48 of 62 career field goals and 86 of 95 career extra points; he was a Pro Bowl selection following the 2018 season after converting 32 of 33 field goals.

The Jaguars also on Sunday deactivated rookie quarterback Jake Luton, wide receiver Dede Westbrook, rookie cornerback Josiah Scott, rookie cornerback Luq Barcoo, center Brandon Linder (knee) and defensive tackle Daniel Ekuale (knee).

Wide receiver DJ Chark Jr., who missed the Dolphins game with a chest/back injured, will play against the Bengals as expected.
