The Jaguars have decided on a kicker for Thursday’s game.


Josh Lambo, the kicker for the Jacksonville Jaguars, has struggled mightily this season, missing three field goals and two extra point attempts. Lambo was unable to practice for the Jaguars on Monday and Tuesday due to personal reasons. The team then ruled him out for Week 4 against the Cincinnati Bengals on Wednesday. With Lambo out for Thursday’s game against the Bengals, the Jaguars have decided to entrust their kicking duties to Matthew Wright. On Monday, he was added to the team’s practice squad. The Jacksonville Jaguars have elevated K Matthew Wright to the active/inactive list for today’s game via standard practice squad elevation and activated WR Tavon Austin from the reserve/injured-designated for return list to the active roster, according to the team.

Wright made all four field goal attempts for the Pittsburgh Steelers last season. In addition, he made all seven of his extra point attempts. Lambo’s struggles this season have been a major issue, despite the fact that he has been a very productive kicker for Jacksonville since 2017.

Maybe this brief respite will allow Lambo to refocus and get back on track. He had made 95 percent of his field goal attempts for the Jaguars prior to this season.
