Bengals Replace Nugent With Bullock Ahead Of Steelers Game

A familiar face will be kicking for the Cincinatti Bengals on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

On Tuesday, the Bengals added kicker Randy Bullock to their roster just one day after he was waived by the Steelers.

Bullock, who was signed to the Steelers roster a week ago Saturday, made all three of his field goal attempts in Pittsburgh’s Week 14 home win over the New York Giants. He was signed due to Chris Boswell suffering an abdominal injury the Friday before the game against the Giants.

On Sunday, Boswell and Bullock were both active for the Steelers road game against the Buffalo Bills. Boswell, however, handled all of the kicking duties during that game.

“I really appreciate the contributions of Randy Bullock,” Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday. “He was a pleasure. He put his hand in the pile and delivered for us when called upon. Appreciate the spirit in which he approached the challenge that comes with being a guy in his position. Thankful for his contribution.”

To make room for Bullock on their roster the Bengals waived veteran kicker Mike Nugent, who has struggled this season.

Nugent has missed six field attempts and six extra-points this season.
