Santos missed four field goals during the Titans' 14-7 loss to the Buffalo Bills, and that apparently was more than enough cause to make a move as Tennessee announced his release roughly 24 hours after Sunday's game.

The Titans will reportedly bring in former Chicago Bears kicker Cody Parkey as Santos' replacement, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Santos was blocked on a 33-yard attempt Sunday and missed from 36, 50 and 53 yards in Week 5, squandering his team's chance at a victory.

"It was a very painful, extremely disappointing day", Santos said after the game, per the Titans' official website. "I feel sorry for my teammates, my coaches and they deserve to win and I have just got to do a better job".

The measure announced October 7 targets providers of technology Washington says is being used to repress Muslim ethnic minorities. Reuters reported in August Hikvision receives nearly 30% of its 50 billion yuan ($7 billion) in income from in a foreign country.

It will mark Parkey's first shot at redemption after the Bears released him during the off-season following his "double doink" miss in the playoffs. He also has played for the Browns and Dolphins.

Santos, 27, has converted 4-of-9 field goals and all 12 of his extra points this season. Williams spent the past two seasons with the Edmonton Eskimos and led the CFL with 1,579 yards receiving previous year.

Santos had been signed September 4 when they put veteran Ryan Succop on injured reserve, a move created to let Succop gain strength after having surgery this offseason on his kicking leg. Succop remains three weeks away from being eligible to be activated off injured reserve.
