NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — After a disappointing loss to the Buffalo Bills, the Tennessee Titans released kicker Cairo Santos and offensive lineman David Quessenberry.

Santos missed four field goals during Sunday's game in Nashvile.

According to the Titans, in five games this season, Santos made 4-of-9 kicks and all 12 of his extra point attempts.

“It was a very painful, extremely disappointing day,” Santos said after the contest. “I don’t feel sorry for myself, I feel sorry for my teammates and coaches that work hard all week, including myself. I feel sorry for my teammates, my coaches and they deserve to win and I have just got to do a better job.”

Kicker Ryan Succop, placed on Injured Reserve at the start of the season, isn’t eligible to join the 53-man roster again until after Week 8. According to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport, former Bears kicker Cody Parkey is likely to be a stopgap until Succop can return.

Quessenberry didn't play during Sunday's game, but did take the field during the Titans' first four games. The offensive tackle caught a touchdown pass in the team’s game against the Colts earlier this season.
