  • Matt Ammendola: Stint with Arizona over

    The Cardinals waived Ammendola on Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    In a corresponding move, DeAndre Hopkins was reinstated from his six-week suspension. The move suggests regular starting kicker Matt Prater (hip) is nearing a return ahead of Thursday's game versus New Orleans, but Arizona will now have to find another option if that's not the case.

  • Cardinals' Matt Ammendola: Signed to active roster

    The Cardinals signed Ammendola to the active roster from the practice squad Wednesday, Tyler Drake of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    Ammendola handled kicking duties in place of Matt Prater (hip) for Arizona this past Sunday, when he converted one of two field-goal tries and both his extra-point attempts in a 20-17 loss to Philadelphia. The team's decision to sign Ammendola to the active roster Wednesday likely hints that Prater isn't trending toward playing Week 6 versus Seattle.

  • Matt Ammendola: Heads back to practice squad

    Ammendola reverted to the Cardinals' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Ammendola signed with Arizona's practice squad last Tuesday and was activated ahead of Sunday's game against the Eagles with starting kicker Matt Prater (hip) sidelined. After making both his PATs and a field goal during the first four quarters against Philadelphia, the 25-year-old missed a game-tying 43-yard field-goal attempt with 22 seconds remaining. Ammendola has now gone 4-for-6 on field-goal tries and 2-for-3 on extra-point attempts over three games with Kansas City and Arizona this season.

  • Cardinals' Matt Ammendola: Will suit up vs. Philadelphia

    Arizona activated Ammendola from its practice squad Saturday ahead of Sunday's game versus the Eagles.

    With regular starting kicker Matt Prater (hip) out, it's Ammendola that will handle kicking duties for the Cardinals in Week 5. He has converted on 75 percent of his field-goal tries and 75 percent of his point-after attempts through two games in 2022.

  • Cardinals' Matt Ammendola: Handling Week 5 kicking duties

    Arizona head coach Kliff Kingsbury confirmed Wednesday that Ammendola will be elevated from the practice squad and will handle kicking duties Sunday against the Eagles, Kevin Parrish Jr. of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Expect Arizona to officially promote Ammendola to the 53-man roster Saturday while he steps in this weekend as a replacement for Matt Prater (hip), whom Kingsbury has already ruled out for Sunday's contest. Ammendola previously filled in for an injured Harrison Butker in two games with the Chiefs earlier this season, converting three of four field-goal attempts and three of four extra-point tries.

  • Matt Ammendola: Joins Arizona's practice squad

    The Cardinals signed Ammendola to their practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

    Ammendola recently filled in for Harrison Butker (ankle), but after he missed a field goal and an extra point in his second game, the Chiefs opted to go with practice-squad kicker Matthew Wright and terminated Ammendola's contract. However, the Oklahoma State product quickly got another opportunity with the Cardinals, who may be without Matt Prater (hip) for Week 5.

  • Chiefs' Matt Ammendola: Let go by Chiefs

    The Chiefs terminated Ammendola's practice squad contract Monday, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.

    In Kansas City's 20-17 loss to the Colts on Sunday, Ammendola -- who was filling in for Harrison Butker (ankle) -- missed one of his two field-goal attempts and his lone extra point try. Per Sweeney, the Chiefs may sign another kicker in the coming days to provide insurance in case Butker isn't ready for Week 4 action.

  • Chiefs' Matt Ammendola: To fill in for Butker again

    Ammendola is slated to be the Chiefs' placekicker Sunday at Indianapolis with Harrison Butker (ankle) unavailable for a second game in a row, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Butker sprained his left ankle in the season opener and hasn't practiced or played in the meantime. Ammendola filled in for the six-year pro Week 2 against the Chargers, making both field-goal attempts and all three of his point-after tries. Considering he's attached to the high-power Kansas City offense, Ammendola is a decent fill-in option for as long as Butker is sidelined.

  • Matt Ammendola: Fills in admirably in Week 2

    Ammendola nailed two of two field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point tries during Thursday's 27-24 victory versus the Chargers.

    Ammendola made a spot appearance for the Chiefs with Harrison Butker (ankle) out of commission Thursday and made the most of the opportunity. While Kansas City may move on from him once Butker is clear of injury, Ammendola likely will stick around on the team's practice squad until Butker is healthy.

  • Chiefs' Matt Ammendola: Up from practice squad

    The Chiefs elevated Ammendola from the practice squad ahead of Thursday's game against the Chargers.

    With Harrison Butker out with a left ankle injury, Ammendola will handle Kansas City's kicking duties Thursday, which gives him some Week 2 fantasy streaming appeal while he's supported by a Patrick Mahomes-led offense. Butker will target a potential return to action Week 3 in Indianapolis.

  • Matt Ammendola: Will kick for Chiefs on Thursday

    Ammendola is expected to be elevated from the practice squad to handle kicking duties for the Chiefs during Thursday's matchup against the Chargers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    The Chiefs have ruled Harrison Butker (ankle) out for the contest, so Ammendola, who was signed to the practice squad Monday, will get an opportunity to make his Kansas City debut. The Oklahoma State product attempted 19 field goals for the Jets in 2021, making all 11 of his tries within 40 yards but just two of eight tries from 40-plus yards. He lacks Butker's experience and reliability, but Ammendola will benefit from being attached to one of the top offenses in football, making him a viable Week 2 steaming option.
