Undrafted rookie Travis Coons has won the Tennessee Titans kicking job, at least for the time being.

Coons is on the roster, while Maikon Bonani is being cut, per Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

We’ll have to see how it pans out from here. Tennessee had three veteran free-agent kickers in for workouts recently. Jay Feely played for Ken Whisenhunt in Arizona. Rian Lindell and Garrett Hartley were also in Nashville.

It’s possible that the Eagles’ kicker for the 2014 season is not currently on their roster.

They are obviously not totally sold on Alex Henery, who has missed from 47 and 31 yards this preseason.

Cody Parkey was acquired from the Colts for running back David Fluellen on Wednesday and will get a brief tryout for the job. If the team isn’t satisfied with either option, they’ll look to the outside for help.

Fantasy Impact:

There are some big names available should the Eagles decide to go that direction. Mentioned on the list were Rob Bironas, David Akers and Rian Lindell among others. It's a situation to keep an eye on because the Birds will put up points this season, and place their kicker in situations to put up points, too - but they'll have to trust him first.

Bills release Rian Lindell

Bills announced the release of veteran K Rian Lindell.

Fantasy Impact:

Buffalo drafted Dustin Hopkins in the sixth round this spring, despite Lindell making 21-of-24 in 2012. Hopkins should get a bit of a bump up the rankings with this news and will only be helped with EJ Manuel back healthy and running the offense.

Bills RB C.J. Spiller did have 22 carries for 91 yards and three catches for another 39 yards, but there were still times when coach Chan Gailey's use of his star running back could easily be questioned.

In 11 plays run in the red zone (not counting Rian Lindell field goals), for example, Spiller touched the ball just once. Backup Tashard Choice got two red-zone touches.

"I think I said it earlier in the week that Choice would play because [Spiller] gets winded, and then when we're trying to throw the football sometimes we'd rather have Choice in there to protect when we know we're going to throw it," Gailey said in explaining why Spiller was on the sidelines for an extended stretch near the end of the first half, a sequence that ended in a 19-yard field goal by the Bills.

"So we'll stick Choice in there some plays. It just happened that it worked that way. It wasn't an injury."
