  Chiefs | Cairo Santos placed on IR    Tue Sep 26, 06:33 PM

Kansas City Chiefs PK Cairo Santos (groin) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Sept. 26.

Footballguys view: Santos could be brought back later in the year if healthy enough to play. They'll be without Santos for at least eight weeks, putting a potential return near the fantasy playoffs. He was perfect so far this year, but the groin injury that caused him to miss three games in the preseason just wouldn't clear up. In the meantime, rookie kicker Harrison Butker gets an opportunity with the Chiefs while Santos is out.

  Broncos | Denver extends Brandon McManus    Mon Sep 11, 02:49 PM

Denver Broncos PK Brandon McManus agreed to a four-year extension Monday, Sept. 11.

Footballguys view: McManus has a powerful leg and is especially prolific when playing at altitude. He's hit 82.9 percent of his field goals during the last few years with the Broncos. They moved on from safety T.J. Ward, an unpopular move for the fan base, but it freed up money to get something done with McManus.
