The Tennessee Titans placed Ryan Succop on injured reserve and signed kicker Cairo Santos, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Wednesday.
The Titans, who open the season on Sunday at Cleveland, have not yet made the transaction official.
Succop opened training camp on the physically unable to perform list after having offseason knee surgery, but returned for Tennessee’s final two preseason games.
The 32-year-old will be ineligible to play until Week 9 should he head to injured reserve.
Succop converted 26 of 30 field goal attempts and 28 of 31 extra-point tries in 16 games last season. He is 235 for 281 (83.6 percent) in field goal attempts and 314 for 323 on extra-point tries in his career with the Kansas City Chiefs (2009-2013) and Titans (2014-18).
Santos spent the offseason with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but was cut in favor of rookie Matt Gay.
Santos was 9 of 12 on field goals and 17 of 17 on extra points with the Buccaneers in seven games last season.
