Chargers Place K Nate Kaeding on IR. Will Be Released When Healthy

Nate Kaeding will be placed on the IR in order to make room for Danario Alexander. The Chargers will be required to release him when he is healthy. SIGH.


Nate is the most accurate kicker in the league (actually 2nd most accurate behind Dan Bailey) and will soon be available for the rest of the league. The Chargers will rely on Nick Novak to close out the season with the kicking duties (74th most accurate kicker).

Ever wonder who the least accurate active kicker in the league is? That would be our boy Nick Novak! AMAZING!

How else do the Chargers plan on doing during the BYE?

    Nice… what are they going to do next this week? Have A.J. bone Roger Goodell’s wife, and burn down the HOF in Canton Ohio?

  • Craig Hammond

    Eh.. Only most accurate in regular season. Our games rarely come down to a field goal, and if they do its out of Nate’s range. Novak has been good to us. We have bigger problems to fix.

  • Saul Lopez

    Finally some good news!!!!!!! Now all we need is Norv gone and a year supply of stick-um & we’re good.

  • veazy

    How many dumbasses are gonna cry about not trading him and letting him go like all the other former Chargers before somebody realizes nobody is trading for a kicker? NONE.

      Why should we cry over a guy that couldn’t help us win in the post-season? and now he can’t say healthy on team that is having problems with injuries. The Colts didn’t have a problem releasing their Kicker, and signing the patriots kicker to win a Superbowl. i’d say this was two seasons to late.

      Now some may think, “..well he was a pro-bowler..” in the regular season. just not in the playoffs. which is where the chargers needed his “propBowl” kicking. hope he lands on his feet somewhere.
