  • Novak connected on his lone field-goal try and made both of his extra-point attempts in the 20-17 overtime loss to the Jaguars on Sunday. Novak managed to drill his 50-yard field-goal attempt Sunday after missing from a similar distance in Week 8 against the Patriots. However, given the Chargers' recent offensive struggles, Novak hasn't seen nearly enough opportunities to warrant fantasy relevance at this juncture of the season.

  • Novak (ankle) missed his only field-goal attempt Sunday, but did connect on his lone extra-point try during the Chargers' 21-13 loss to the Patriots. Novak, who was limited at practice Wednesday with an ankle injury, failed to generate enough leg for his 51-yard field-goal attempt early in the first quarter. Given Novak's career long is 53 yards, and the blustery conditions that enveloped Gillette Stadium, it wasn't exactly a surprise to see the veteran kicker miss what wound up being his only field-goal attempt of the afternoon. Novak and the Chargers will have a bye week before taking on the Jaguars in Week 10.

  • Chargers' Nick Novak: Returns to full practice
    By RotoWire Staff

    Novak (ankle) is no longer listed on the Chargers' Week 8 injury report after practicing fully Friday. Novak has made three of four field-goal attempts in three games with the Chargers to date, recording 17 points over that span. Now that he's cleared to play Sunday against the Patriots, he's an option for those scrambling for a kicker in a bye-heavy week.

  • Novak was limited at Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury. Per Dan Woike of The Los Angeles Times, Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said Novak will be fine for Sunday's game in New England. The team likely is just managing the kicker's practice workload to avoid putting any extra stress on his ankle. The injury could be viewed as more of a concern if Novak isn't upgraded to a full practice participant by the end of the week.

  • Novak made all three of his extra-point attempts in the 21-0 win over the Broncos on Sunday. Novak appeared to get slightly dinged up during a kickoff in the fourth quarter, but Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times noted the veteran kicker was able to warm up on the sidelines afterwards. Given no news has emanated from the Chargers regarding the apparent injury, assume Novak should be good to go next week against the Patriots.
