Description: Kicker Nate Kaeding has been signed to replace injured Dan Carpenter.

10/22/2012 1:50:00 PM

10/5/2012 4:54:00 PM
Description: San Diego kicker Nate Kaeding has missed every practice this week and is expected to miss his second straight game.
Insight: Fantasy kickers are a dime a dozen so this shouldn't be a big problem. His replacement, Nick Novak was 3-for-3 in Week 4 against Kansas City and figures to see plenty of opportunities in what should be a high-scoring affair against New Orleans.
 
9/29/2012 12:38:00 PM
Description: According to Scott Bair of the North County Times, San Diego kicker Nate Kaeding was not on the team flight to Kansas City, but Nick Novak was.

9/28/2012 5:57:00 PM
Description: The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Chargers K Nate Kaeding is questionable for Week 4 with groin soreness.
Insight: Kaeding left Friday's practice. "Tomorrow is the key day to see if he's just sore or he strained something," Chargers coach Norv Turner said. "We've got to have a good plan for if Nate can kick and a plan if he can't kick." Kickers are a dime a dozen so don't wait around to find out Kaeding's status.
 
11/19/2010 4:01:00 PM
Description: The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Chargers K Nate Kaeding is on track to resume the team's kicking duties in Monday night's matchup against the Broncos.
Insight: Even though stopgap kicker Kris Brown is still on the roster, the team is expected to release him this weekend. While Kaeding is definitely having a down year, the high-powered San Diego offense should give him plenty of scoring options. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/10/2010 9:02:00 PM
Description: Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports, via Twitter, that Chargers K Nate Kaeding has resumed kicking in the bye week.

11/8/2010 3:04:00 PM
Description: The Houston Chronicle reports that the Chargers expect to have K Nate Kaeding (groin) back after the bye.
Insight: While replacement kicker Kris Brown has filled in admirably, Kaeding will certainly reclaim his job. He could prove to be an asset to fantasy owners, as the high-flying Chargers offense should certainly put points on the board. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/5/2010 3:04:00 PM

10/26/2010 3:02:00 PM
Description: The San Diego Union-Tribune is reporting that Chargers K Nate Kaeding (groin) is not expected to be available in week 8.

10/21/2010 2:04:00 PM
Description: The San Diego Union-Tribune reports Chargers coach Norv Turner has set no timetable for K Nate Kaeding's return.
Insight: Kaeding tweaked the groin he had offseason surgery on. Those types of injuries can sideline players for a couple of games or linger for an entire season. Rest assured in dropping Kaeding for another option at kicker. (RapidDraft.com)
 
10/18/2010 3:04:00 PM
Description: The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Nate Kaeding is once again dealing with a nagging groin injury.
