It’s a terrible time of the season to be looking to fix a kicker problem, but that’s just the situation facing the Baltimore Ravens.

With Billy Cundiff struggling with a left calf injury, the team has signed Shayne Graham, who was in the team’s training camp in 2010 but lost the job to Cundiff. Graham, an 11-year veteran, has kicked for five teams, including the Washington Redskins, since being cut by the Ravens. The Redskins cut him Aug. 14 after he missed two field goals in a preseason game against Pittsburgh.

The Ravens have not placed Cundiff, 27-of-36 this season and 2-of-5 in December, on injured reserve. he missed a 36-yarder Sunday night in the Ravens’ loss in San Diego.
