Chargers Place K Nate Kaeding On IR

Chargers Kicker Nate Kaeding will be placed on Injured Reserve, thus ending his season with the Chargers, per Kevin Acee.


Kaeding was once an elite kicker, but in recent seasons he has proven to be far too injury prone. Nick Novak has filled in nicely as Kaeding’s replacement, making five out of six field goals with a season long of 47 yards. The Chargers are required to release Kaeding with an injury settlement once he’s healthy, so there is the possibility he could be kicking with another team before the season is over.
