Description: Kicker Nate Kaeding has been signed to replace injured Dan Carpenter.
Insight: Kaeding, formerly of the San Diego Chargers, was perfect on the season in three games, 7-for-7 on field goal tries and 6-for-6 on extra points, before an injury put him on the sidelines.
 
10/22/2012 1:50:00 PM
Description: San Diego kicker Nate Kaeding (groin) is expected to be placed on the injured reserve, ending his season, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Insight: Kaeding played three games this season, hitting all seven of his field goal attempts and going 6-for-6 on extra points. The Chargers will continue to use Nick Novak who has been the team's place kicker for the last three games.
 
10/11/2012 6:47:00 PM
Description: San Diego kicker Nate Kaeding (groin) isn't expected to play Sunday.
Insight: Kaeding didn't practice Thursday. Nick Novak will continue to kick for the Chargers.
 
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.
Insight: Kaeding left Friday's practice with a groin injury. Fantasy kickers are a dime a dozen so this shouldn't be a big problem.
 
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.
Insight: Kaeding is expected to regain the kicking duties once the team returns to action in week 11. San Diego has favorable weather matchups for the remainder of the schedule, so Kaeding is fantasy-worthy immediately upon his return. (RapidDraft.com)
 
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
Description: Nate Kaeding (groin) has not practiced at all this week.
Insight: Kaeding is battling a lingering groin injury and is expected to miss a third straight week. Expect Kris Brown to handle the kicking duties against the Texans. (RapidDraft.com)
 
10/30/2010 9:04:00 PM
Description: As expected, Kaeding has been ruled out for the second straight game because of a groin injury.
Insight: Kris Brown will again handle kicking duties in his place, despite being listed as questionable himself. (RapidDraft.com)
 
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.
Insight: There is still no timetable for Kaeding's return, so recently signed K Kris Brown will continue with the kicking duties for the near future. (RapidDraft.com)
 
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.
Insight: Although Kaeding underwent an offseason procedure to correct the problem, he admitted to "tweaking" it in Sunday's loss to the Rams. After blowing a potential tying field goal, the Chargers may have to look for other options at kicker. (RapidDraft.com)
 
5/27/2010 8:47:00 PM
Description: Nate Kaeding has resumed kicking at Chargers Organized Team Activities.
Insight: Supporting the powerful San Diego offense, Kaeding should once again be one of the top kickers in the game. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/19/2010 1:24:00 PM
Description: Nate Kaeding (groin surgery) recently began light kicking
Insight: If he is healthy, Kaeding should once again be a top producing kicker in fantasy. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/2/2010 6:34:00 PM
Description: According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Chargers K Nate Kaeding ended up undergoing groin surgery earlier this offseason.
Insight: It's a good thing Kaeding had the surgery early in the offseason because Nick Folk struggled after undergoing a similar procedure last May. Kaeding is on schedule in his recovery and is fully expected to be healthy by training camp. We'll keep an eye on his progress in August. (SportsBuff.com)
 
1/29/2010 8:54:00 AM
Description: Kaeding was forced to pull out of the Pro Bowl due to a groin injury.
Insight: Kaeding will rest the groin and is expected to be fine for the start of mini camp. (SportsBuff.com)
 
1/18/2010 9:06:00 AM
Description: Kaeding missed three field goals and had only two extra points against the Jets on Sunday.
Insight: Kaeding was one of the best kickers all-season long but had three huge misses in the loss to the Jets. (SportsBuff.com)
