The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have no plans to make Chicago Bears WR Devin Hester an international star in the return game during their Week 7 battle in London. "No. Devin Hester will have to go against our Pro Bowl, hopefully, our Pro Bowler, a grass skirt guy if we can get him into one, (P Michael Koenen)," head coach Raheem Morris said. "Hopefully, we can directional kick and do some different things but if we have to kick to him, like last week, we played (New Orleans Saints RB Darren Sproles) who is a dynamic kick returner and we were able to keep the ball away from him and limit his touches, that's what we'll have to do."

Paul Newberry, of the Associated Press, reports the Atlanta Falcons have decided P/PK Michael Koenen will be their place kicker in 2006. They still haven't decided if he'll also be their punter. Head coach Jim Mora will wait until after Thursday's final preseason game, Aug. 31, before deciding if he wants to bring in someone else to handle the punting. He's concerned about giving one guy all three jobs, though Koenen certainly looks capable of handling the load. Frank Corral was the last kicker to do triple duty on a regular basis. In 1981, he had 89 punts, kicked off 70 times and attempted 26 field goals for the Los Angeles Rams. The Falcons will scan the list of available punters after NFL teams make their final round of cuts. If there's someone worth picking up, they might go that route. Or, if they decide to free up a roster spot for another position, they'll let Koenen do all three jobs. "That's a real positive, especially if we feel like we need someone else for special teams," Mora said.

But we want a young kicker to be able to make it just like we had with (punter) Michael Koenen last year."
