"Dominik Eberle is assuming those duties until further notice," said Frank Ross, the Texans special teams coordinator.
Fairbairn, signed last year to a four-year, $18.75 million contract, is coming off a career-long field goal, a franchise-record 61-yard kick against the Seattle Seahawks. Fairbairn hit 52-yard and 51-yard field goals against the Jaguars and a franchise-record 61-yard kick against the Seattle Seahawks. Fairbairn has hit 14 of 17 field goals and 10 of 13 extra points for the NFL’s second-lowest scoring offense.
