Nate Kaeding will not be kicking for “a while”. He already has seen a specialist and got an MRI on his injured groin. Expect more Nick Novak while Kaeding is resting the groin.

Nick Novak was signed on Friday and was kicking for the team on Sunday against the Chiefs. He went 3-for-3 in kicks with a long of 47 yards.

The Chargers only had 3 corners in the game against the Kansas City Chiefs. They usually cut OT Reggie Wells in order to bring up CB Greg Gatson before the games, but on Friday they had to sign Novak instead. The Chargers will likely need more corners against the Saints this weekend, so it will be interesting who the Chargers will decide to release to make room for a corner.
