Watch Now:

Ammendola will likely serve as the Texans' kicker Sunday against the Jets, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Ka'imi Fairbairn (quadricep) is eligible to return from injured reserve this week after missing the Texans' last four contests, but the kicker doesn't look as though he's made enough progress in his recovery yet to be ready to play Sunday. As a result, the 26-year-old Ammendola appears set for a fifth straight turn as Houston's kicker. In his first four games with the team, Ammendola has knocked down all 10 of his point-after tries and six of nine field-goal attempts, with two of those misses coming from beyond 50 yards.
