Description: Bengals placekicker Mike Nugent is questionable for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh with a right calf injury.
Insight: The Bengals have used Josh Brown to kick for Nugent the last two games. Brown is 6-of-6 in field goal attempts as his replacement.

Description: Bengals placekicker Mike Nugent is listed as doubtful on Friday's injury report with a right calf injury.
Insight: The Bengals signed Josh Brown to be the place-kicker if Nugent can't go in Week 14. Cincinnati also plays Thursday night in Week 15, so this might stretch out to two games.

Description: Bengals placekicker Mike Nugent signed a one-tear deal to stay in Cincinnati. Nugent finished just outside the top-10 rankings for kickers and could move up with an improving Bengals offense.
Insight: Nugent was 33-for-38 (86%) last year, but loses fantasy value because he didn't make or even try a 50-yard field goal in 2011.

Description: Nugent suffered a tear to the ACL in his right knee and a sprain to the MCL on Sunday. He is done for the season.
Insight: The injury came a week too late for Cincinnati to consider former Bengals Shayne Graham and Dave Rayner, each of whom was signed leading up to Week 10. We'll see who Nugent's replacement will be. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: An MRI taken on Bengals K Mike Nugent's kicking knee revealed a torn ACL and a sprained MCL, knocking him out for the year.
Insight: Nugent's first year wasn't bad, having gone 15-for-19 on field goals and a perfect 12-for-12 39 yards in. The Bengals will host a couple free agents this week.
10/4/2010 12:05:00 AM
Description: Nugent suffered his first miss of the season Sunday, when Cleveland blocked a 44-yard field goal attempt.
Insight: Nugent still connected on two others and a pair of extra points to remain valuable. (RapidDraft.com)
9/4/2010 11:02:00 PM
Description: Nugent has beaten Dave Rayner for the Bengals' kicking job. The former second-round pick of the Jets appeared in just seven games over the past two years with that team, Tampa and Arizona.
Insight: Nugent's performance has been nothing special, and injuries have taken a toll as well. As long as he's healthy, Cincinnati presents a good situation. He should be easy to cut if things go wrong at all, though. (RapidDraft.com)
4/23/2010 8:00:00 PM
Description: Bengals signed K Mike Nugent to a two-year contract.
Insight: Nugent has been a bust since being selected in the second round by the Jets in 2005 and no one should expect anything different out of him in Cincinnati. (sportsBuff.com)
12/17/2009 2:54:00 PM
Description: According to the Arizona Republic, the Cardinals have signed Nugent.
Insight: Neil Rackers will not play this week with a groin issue, so Nugent will kick in his place against the Lions at least and perhaps longer if Rackers has to miss more time. (SportsBuff.com)
12/2/2009 9:33:00 AM
Description: According to the Newark Star Ledger the Giants worked out four kickers on Tuesday, including Nugent.
Insight: The Giants are reportedly looking for a kickoff specialist, so Lawrence Tynes' job seems to be secure. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Nugent missed two field goals on Sunday against Washington, but Tampa Bay head coach Raheem Morris expressed support for him after the game. (Tampa Tribune)
Insight: Nugent's misses were from 48 and 49 yards out, so they weren't exactly chipshots. But if he continues to miss a lot field goals, the team may have to look elsewhere (Matt Bryant?) for a more reliable option. (SportsBuff.com)
6/17/2009 2:26:00 AM
Description: Nugent had a forgettable season last year with the Jets. He missed his only field goal attempt and had two extra points before getting injured in the Jets' Week 1 victory over Miami.
Insight: Nugent will battle veteran Matt Bryant for the job in Tampa Bay but will likely be the favorite heading into training camp. (SportsBuff.com)
3/4/2009 4:00:00 PM
Description: The former Jets kicker has signed with the Bucs.
Insight: Nugent's addition likely means the end of Matt Bryant's run in Tampa. Nugent has yet to prove his dependability, but kicker is such a volatile position that he could easily become one of this year's top fantasy scorers there. No kicker should be drafted before the final round. (SportsBuff.com)
