Bills release kicker Rehkow

Schmidt, Hauschka likely to handle kicking duties

Orchard Park, NY - The Bills released K/P Austin Rehkow and designated TE Jason Croom as waived/injured. Croom was in a walking boot after Thursday's preseason game in Philadelphia. 

In their place, Buffalo signed tight end Rory Anderson and safety Adrian McDonald. 

The Rehkow move makes placekicker Stephen Hauschka and punter Colton Schmidt the only kickers left on the roster. 

There was thought about Buffalo possibly keeping Rehkow for his big leg and his versatility to kick and punt, but the Bills are staying with the experienced options for now. 

Anderson was a 7th round pick by the 49ers in 2015 who did not make the team. He spent some time on the Bears practice squad last year. His nickname is "Busta". 

McDonald entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2016 with the Chargers. He spent last year on their practice squad, but was released last Sunday.
