Texans add kicker with Ka’imi Fairbairn hurt

Houston Texans kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn is unlikely to be recovered from a strained quadriceps before Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals, leading the team to add Matt Ammendola to the practice squad on Tuesday.Ammendola participated in a workout with the team on Monday as a contingency for Fairbairn, who exited Houston’s Week 9 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the leg injury.Running back Dare Ogunbowale, the Texans’ emergency kicker, gave Houston the lead with a 29-yard field goal in the fourth quarter last week. He was the first non-kicker to make a field goal since 2004 (Dolphins wide receiver Wes Welker).
