Jaguars' Matthew Wright: Converts game-winning kick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright made all three field-goal attempts and both PATs during Sunday's 23-20 win over the Dolphins.

The Jaguars entered Sunday's contest without a made field goal on the season, but Wright came through three times in London, inlcuding the game-winning kick from 53 yards as time expired. He also converted from 40 and 54 yards. Josh Lambo remains on the roster for now, but the kicking job should be Wright's job moving forward following his Week 6 performance.

Jaguars' Matthew Wright: Retains kicking job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright will serve as the Jaguars' kicker Sunday against the Dolphins in London with Josh Lambo (coach's decision) inactive for the contest, Mia O'Brien of First Coast News Jacksonville reports.

For the second straight week, Wright has won out in the competition for kicking duties with Lambo, who has been forced to battle for his job since his Week 4 absence due to a personal matter. Though he converted on only one of two extra-point tries and hit the crossbar and missed on a 53-yard attempt in last week's loss to the Titans, Wright could build up some more job security with a stronger showing in London.

Jaguars' Matthew Wright: Signs on with Jacksonville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright signed a contract with the Jaguars on Saturday, John Shipley of SI.com reports.

It sure seems like Josh Lambo's tenure with the team could be coming to an end, and at least for the immediate future expect Wright to once again handle the primary kicking duties. Wright has attempted just one field goal over the last two weeks as a starter, but he's at least gone 4-for-5 on extra-point attempts over that stretch.

Matthew Wright: Reverts back to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright reverted back to the Jaguars' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Wright operated as the primary kicker Sunday, as Josh Lambo (coach's decision) was inactive. However, he failed to take advantage of the opportunity, as he hit the upright on a PAT during the first quarter and left a 53-yard field goal short.

Jaguars' Matthew Wright: Misses PAT
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright made one of two PATs and missed his lone field-goal attempt during Sunday's 37-19 loss to the Titans.

Wright hit the right upright on a PAT during the first quarter, and he also came up short and hit the crossbar on a 53-yard field goal. The 25-year-old won the kicking competition with Josh Lambo last week, but he was unable to fully take advantage of the game opportunity. Lambo and Wright are a combined 0-for-4 on field-goal attempts as the Jaguars have yet to convert one this season. Wright was a gameday elevation Sunday and will revert back to the practice squad, and it's uncertain if he'll receive another chance to kick for Jacksonville.

Jaguars' Matthew Wright: Handling kicking duties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright is active for Sunday's game against the Titans and will handle kicking duties.

Wright was elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's game and will operate as Jacksonville's kicker with Josh Lambo (coach's decision) inactive. Wright made his team debut last week and made all three of his PAT attempts.

Jaguars' Matthew Wright: Elevated for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright was elevated from the Jaguars' practice squad Saturday.

Wright will join the active roster for a second straight game after he converted all three of his extra-point tries last week. Josh Lambo could be active, but Wright seems to have a good chance to handle kicking duties against Tennessee.

Matthew Wright: Reverts to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright has reverted to the Jaguars' practice squad per the NFL's transaction log.

Wright replaced Josh Lambo (personal) on the team's active roster for Thursday's Week 4 loss to the Bengals. He converted all of his PATs and did not attempt a field goal during the contest.

October 1, 2021 12:16 PM
Jaguars' Matthew Wright: Converts three PATs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright made all three of his PATs and did not attempt a field goal during Thursday's 24-21 loss to the Bengals.

The 25-year-old was promoted from the practice squad to kick Thursday with Josh Lambo (personal) unavailable, and he delivered on the few opportunities he had versus Cincinnati. Wright is poised to revert to the practice squad, but he could receive a longer look from the Jags given Lambo is 0-for-3 on field goals and 5-for-7 on PATs through three games this season.

Jaguars' Matthew Wright: Officially promoted for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars elevated Wright from their practice squad ahead of Thursday's game against the Bengals, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

As expected, Wright will at least temporarily join the Jaguars to handle kicking duties while Josh Lambo (personal) misses the Week 4 matchup. Jacksonville hasn't indicated that Lambo will miss additional time beyond Thursday's game, but a solid showing by Wright could put Lambo's job on notice in any case. Through the Jaguars' first three games, Lambo has missed all three of his field-goal attempts and has converted on only five of seven extra-point tries.

Jaguars' Matthew Wright: Kicking for Jacksonville in Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars will elevate Wright from their practice squad to handle kicking duties Thursday against the Bengals, J.P. Shadrick of the team's official site reports.

He'll be summoned as a replacement for Josh Lambo (personal), who was been ruled out for the contest. Assuming Lambo's absence from the team isn't a long-term concern, Wright will likely revert to the practice squad shortly after Thursday's contest. Wright's previous NFL action came in three games with the Steelers last season, when he connected on all four of his field-goal attempts and all seven of his extra-point tries.

Matthew Wright: Joins Jacksonville's practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars signed Wright to their practice squad Monday.

Wright was with the Lions during training camp, but he was waived in favor of Zane Gonzalez. Josh Lambo, Jacksonville's current kicker, has had a rough start to the season. He has missed all three of his field-goal attempts (two of which were beyond 50 yards) this year, and he missed two extra points during Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. Wright may be looking at an elevation if Lambo continues to struggle.

Matthew Wright: Let go by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright was waived by the Lions on Tuesday.

Wright inked a reserve/future contract with the Lions in January but will be let go after opening camp with the team. Zane Gonzalez was signed in a corresponding move to compete with Randy Bullock.

Lions' Matthew Wright: Gets deal with Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Detroit signed Wright to a reserve/future contract Friday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Wright appeared in three games with the Steelers in 2020, starting place of Chris Boswell while the latter dealt with a groin injury. In that span, Wright converted all four of his field-goal tries and all seven extra-point attempts. Matt Prater is set to hit free agency this offseason.

Matthew Wright: Heads to practice roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright reverted to the Steelers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Wright played the last two games in place of Chris Boswell (groin). In that stretch, Wright connected on all three field-goal attempts and all five extra-point tries. If Boswell's healthy, he'll be the Steelers' starting kicker in Sunday's wild-card game against the Browns. Otherwise, Wright will get the nod again.

Steelers' Matthew Wright: Perfect once again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright converted on all three of his field-goal attempts while also making his lone extra-point try in Sunday's 24-22 loss to the Browns.

Wright filled in for Chris Boswell (groin) once again Sunday, and he was perfect on four kicks during the regular-season finale. Boswell will likely handle the kicking duties in the playoffs considering he's healthy, but Wright could have the chance to compete for a starting role with a team in 2021 given his performance over the past several weeks.

January 2, 2021 05:48 PM
Steelers' Matthew Wright: Returns to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright was elevated to the Steelers' active roster Saturday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

Wright made his second appearance of the season in Week 16 against the Colts, making all four of his extra-point attempts in the process. He'll be the Steelers' kicker again in Week 17 with Chris Boswell (groin) still sidelined.

December 28, 2020 08:44 PM
Matthew Wright: Moved back to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright reverted to the Steelers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Wright converted on all four of his point-after tries during Sunday's win over Indianapolis, though he was not afforded a field-goal attempt in the contest. The 24-year-old has been reliable over two appearances this season, knocking down all six of his PATs while draining his lone field-goal try of 37 yards Week 13 against Washington. As Chris Boswell continues to deal with a groin injury, there remains a chance of Wright being activated for Pittsburgh's regular-season finale at Cleveland.

Steelers' Matthew Wright: Converts on four extra-point tries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright didn't attempt any field goals but converted on all four of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 28-24 win over the Colts.

Wright was filling in for Chris Boswell (groin) for the second time this season, and he was perfect on his four kicks during the comeback win. The UCF product has been effective when needed during limited action this year, but he should return to the practice squad if Boswell is healthy enough to play against the Browns in Week 17.

December 27, 2020 12:12 PM
Steelers' Matthew Wright: Kicking for Pittsburgh in Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittsburgh elevated Wright to the active roster Saturday.

Chris Boswell has been ruled out ahead of Week 16 because of a groin injury, aligning the 24-year-old Wright for his second NFL appearance. The UCF product went 2-for-2 on extra points while converting his lone field-goal try of 37 yards during a Week 13 loss to Washington.
