After bailing on kicker Michael Badgley Monday, the Titans are turning to their expected contingency plan. The team has promoted kicker Randy Bullock from the practice squad.

Badgley got the first shot to replace Sam Ficken, but he struggled during Tennessee’s loss to the Cardinals on Sunday. The 26-year-old finished the game missing his lone field-goal attempt and converting only one of his two extra-point tries. As a result, the team decided to waive the former Chargers kicker.

So, in comes Bullock, who recently joined the organization’s practice squad. The veteran kicker spent the past four seasons with the Bengals, where he converted 84.9 percent of his field-goal attempts and 95.4 percent of his extra-point attempts. The 31-year-old has also had stops with the Texans, Jets, Giants and Steelers. Bullock signed a one-year deal with the Lions this offseason, but he was cut by the team at the end of the preseason.

The team made another move on Tuesday, placing safety Amani Hooker on injured reserve. The defensive back suffered a foot injury during Sunday’s loss. The 23-year-old got into all 16 games for the Titans last season, collecting 51 tackles and four interceptions. He started Sunday’s game against Arizona, compiling five tackles and a surprise six-yard reception (on a fake punt).
