  • Chargers' Ty Long: Relieved of kicking duties

    After the Chargers signed Chase McLaughlin, Long will no longer serve as the team's kicker, Gavino Borquez of USA Today reports.

    Long was a decent placeholder for the first four games with Michael Badgley (groin) out, connecting on seven of nine field-goal attempts and all nine extra points. Long's a punter, though, so McLaughlin was brought in to take over as the placekicker for the duration of Badgley's injury.

  • Chargers' Ty Long: Connects on 51-yard field goal

    Long connected on all three of his field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point attempts in the 30-10 win over Dolphins on Sunday.

    Long filled in for Michael Badgley (groin) for a fourth consecutive week and once again performed admirably, even making his first 50-plus yard field goal in the blowout win. Keep track of Badgley's status leading up to what figures to be a lucrative fantasy game against the Broncos in Week 5.

  • Chargers' Ty Long: Will kick again

    Long is set to handle kicking duties for the Chargers once again in Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

    Long will fill in for MIchael Badgley (groin) for the fourth consecutive week. He rebounded from a rough Week 2 by nailing both of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point attempts in last week's loss to the Texans.

  • Chargers' Ty Long: Posts perfect afternoon

    Long made both of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point attempts in the 27-20 loss Sunday to the Texans.

    Long rebounded after a tough Week 2, filling in once again for Michael Badgley (groin) to the tune of a perfect afternoon. Considering Badgley's status appears to be week by week in nature, it's imperative Long's fantasy managers keep track of the former's practice status throughout the week.

  • Chargers' Ty Long: Kicking for Chargers

    Long will handle the kicking duties with Michael Badgley (groin) inactive.

    Long struggled last week, converting only one of three field-goal attempts but making his lone extra-point try. He is a utility man for the Chargers' special teams, as Long works as the punter as well.

  • Chargers' Ty Long: Slated to kick again Week 3

    Long is expected to handle kicking duties for the Chargers in Sunday's game against the Texans after Michael Badgley (groin) was downgraded to doubtful for the contest, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Badgley's groin injury continues to linger longer than anticipated, as Long will pull double duties on special teams for the third straight week. In addition to serving as Los Angeles' punter, Long has drilled all four of his extra-point tries and connected on two of four attempts from the field.

  • Chargers' Ty Long: Two misses in loss

    Long made just one of his three field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point attempt in Sunday's 13-10 loss to the Lions.

    The Chargers' multi-season kicking nightmares resurfaced Sunday, as Long's second-half misses from 39 and 41 yards ultimately cost the team the win. Starting kicker Michael Badgley is expected to be healthy for Week 3 following two straight absences due to a groin injury, so it's likely Long will slide back to his role as punter for the foreseeable future.

  • Chargers' Ty Long: Confirmed as Week 2 kicker

    Long (groin) will handle the kicking duties Sunday against the Lions with Michael Badgley (groin) inactive.

    As anticipated, Long will serve as the Chargers' punter and kicker in Week 2 with Badgley out for a second straight contest. Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Chargers anticipate that Badgley will be ready to kick Week 3 versus the Texans, so Long isn't expected to perform double duty on special teams beyond Sunday's contest.

  • Chargers' Ty Long: Slated to kick again Week 2

    Long is expected to serve as the Chargers' placekicker Sunday against the Lions with Michael Badgley (groin) likely to be inactive for the contest, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    For the second straight week, Long will handle both punting and kicking duties while Badgley remains hobbled by the injury. Long got the job done in the 30-24 overtime win over the Colts in the season opener, knocking down all three of his extra-point attempts in addition to nailing a 40-yard field goal. Rapoport relays that Badgley is expected to be ready to play against the Texas in Week 3, so Long isn't expected to see any further kicking opportunities beyond Sunday.

  • Chargers' Ty Long: Posts perfect afternoon

    Long converted all three of his extra-point attempts and his lone field-goal attempt in the 30-24 overtime victory Sunday over the Colts.

    Shockingly, the former CFL two-way specialist dramatically outplayed his someday Hall of Fame counterpart, Adam Vinatieri, posting a perfect kicking performance in relief of Michael Badgley (groin). As a result, Long, the Chargers' nominal punter, became the first specialist since 2011 to have a punt, field goal and extra point in the same game. The Chargers certainly weren't nervous to use Long, either, which should give fantasy owners some confidence if Badgley's injury continues to be a nuisance.
