Titans' veteran kicker fine-tuning timing after busy camp

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Working with three different snappers and two holders during training camp is tough on a kicker, even if he's 1 of the most accurate in NFL history.

The carousel has Tennessee's Rob Bironas a little off his game.

Bironas already has missed as many kicks (two) in three preseason games as he did all of last season, and that doesn't count his misses in practice the past month.

The 7-year veteran is the NFL's fourth-most accurate kicker, having connected on 85.6% of his attempts.

But things appear to be returning to normal.

After Monday's roster cuts Bironas is back working with his regular long-snapper Ken Amato and usual holder Brett Kern.

Bironas said Tuesday he's busy fine-tuning his motion to be in rhythm by the opener Sept. 11.
