Tyler Durbin is getting another chance to kick in Columbus.
It looks like it will be a very brief stint, but former Ohio State kicker Tyler Durbin will kick for the Columbus Destroyers this weekend in Nationwide Arena after the team signed him on an emergency basis.
The Columbus AFL team assigned the former Buckeye kicker on an emergency basis in place of regular kicker Craig Peterson, who the teams says will be unavailable this weekend.

It's likely only a one-week stint until Peterson returns, but Durbin will still get to kick in front of a hometown Columbus crowd once as the Destroyers host the Baltimore Brigade at 3:30 p.m. in Nationwide Arena.
Durbin is the second former Ohio State player to sign with the Destroyers after Robert Rose signed with the team last month, but was cut shortly after.
