Randy Bullock Lands on Injured Reserve

Patrick D. Starr

Head Coach Gary Kubiak gave a bit of bad news pertaining to rookie kicker Randy Bullock, when he informed the media Sunday afternoon that Bullock would be placed on injured reserve. Bullock's season will come to an end before it ever started and the starting kicking job might go to Shayne Graham, barring any moves within the week.

An injured groin, described as "black and blue" by Kubiak, is what sent Bullock for tests this morning. According to reports, Bullock has been battling this injury since camp started and kicking through the pain. Bullock did the majority of the kicking last night and was 3 of 3 on extra points and kicked a 33 yard field goal against the New Orleans Saints.

Bullock was drafted in the 5th round (161st overall) in the 2012 NFL draft out of Texans A&M, where he was an All-American and the 2011 Lou Groza Award winner for the best kicker in the country.
