For the third time this year, the Giants are going to have a different kicker when they take the field on Sunday.
CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports that free agent kicker Robbie Gould will join the Giants in London for their game against the Rams. Gould will be playing in place of the beleaguered Josh Brown, who's still with the team.
Gould has been a free agent since Sept. 5 when he was surprising cut by the Bears. Gould was the Bears' all-time leading scorer and had been in Chicago since 2005 when he got released in favor of Connor Barth.
The Giants' new kicker is flying to London Thursday night and is expected to be with the team when they practice on Friday in England.
The Giants' kicking situation took an ugly turn this week after the King County Sheriff's Office in Washington released new documents regarding the situation between Brown and his now ex-wife, Molly.
After the documents were released, the Giants decided just hours before their flight to London took on Thursday that Brown wouldn't travel with the team.
Team owner John Mara said on Thursday that Brown could end up being placed on the commissioner's exempt list as the league and the team both continue to investigate the latest evidence in Brown's domestic violence case.
Brown was suspended for the first game of the 2016 season after the NFL finished its investigation into an arrest from May 2015. The arrest occurred after an incident with his wife in Washington, which led to Brown being charged with fourth-degree domestic violence.
