OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - The Baltimore Ravens have cut kicker Steve Hauschka, who missed a 36-yard field goal and had a conversion blocked in Monday night's 16-0 win over Cleveland.
No replacement was immediately announced. Former Jets kicker Mike Nugent and former Cowboys kicker Billy Cundiff worked out for the team last week.
As a rookie last year, Hauschka was the backup to 40-year-old Matt Stover. The Ravens decided against inviting Stover to camp this summer. Stover is now kicking with the Indianapolis Colts, Baltimore's opponent Sunday.
Hauschka missed four field goals in nine games. The clincher came Monday, when his 36-yard try sailed wide left at the end of a 12-play drive in a scoreless game.
