Once a league-average starter, Forney has appeared in just three games over the last two seasons with no starts. The 31-year-old isn't guaranteed a roster spot at a position Jacksonville is hoping to upgrade this offseason.

Jaguars signed G Kynan Forney, formerly of the Chargers.

Forney was a surprise cut by San Diego, with the Chargers opting to go with rookie Louis Vasquez instead. The veteran will provide depth at guard, which was a major issue with the Jags last season.

Chargers released G Kynan Forney.

Kynan Forney has won the Chargers' starting right guard job over rookie Louis Vasquez.

Forney, 31, has 89 career starts and is having a "tremendous" camp. The job will still go to Vasquez at some point. He fell way behind Forney due to a sprained foot, but has far more upside as both a run and pass blocker.

Chargers re-signed OG Kynan Forney to a two-year, $4.8 million contract.

The deal pays $2 million in '09. Forney, 30, caught on with San Diego last year after being cut by a Falcons regime that wanted to get bigger. Forney can zone block and will battle for playing time at right guard this offseason.

Falcons released G Kynan Forney, OL D'Anthony Batiste, C Doug Datish, DE Brandon Miller, and DT Montavious Stanley.

With Stanley gone, Grady Jackson is sure to start next to Jonathan Babineaux at defensive tackle. Forney couldn't beat out Harvey Dahl.

Falcons placed G Kynan Forney (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Ouch. The Atlanta running game hasn't been the same the last month with Forney injured and Matt Lehr on suspension. Forney will likely undergo surgery and should be ready for the start of camp in 2007.

Falcons right guard Kynan Forney's shoulder "popped out and popped right back in" Sunday, according to head coach Jim Mora.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that RG Kynan Forney was "pulled" at halftime in favor of RG Austin King.

Forney didn't come out for the second half and reportedly isn't expected to return.

Falcons G Kynan Forney (questionable, shoulder) practiced Thursday.

Atlanta's offensive line looks a lot better on paper with Forney a part of it. If he practices again on Friday, Forney will likely play against a Lions team that is still without both its starting defensive tackles.

Falcons RG Kynan Forney (questionable, shoulder) missed practice on Wednesday.

Tyson Clabo slid to his spot in Week 8 while P.J. Alexander subbed at left guard, and the two did a respectable job of protecting QB Michael Vick.

Falcons guard Kynan Forney, questionable with an injured shoulder, returned to practice without restrictions Thursday.

Atlanta should only be without one of its starting guards this week, suspended Matt Lehr. Forney got hurt in a Week 7 win over Pittsburgh.
