  • Cardinals' Mike Nugent: Makes both kicks

    Nugent made both of his field-goal attempts but did not try an extra point in Sunday's 20-12 loss to the 49ers.

    Nugent converted from 27 and 43 yards on his field goals, keeping his perfect record in three games for the Cardinals. With Zane Gonzalez (back) sidelined, the veteran will continue to assume Arizona's kicking duties in Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Rams.

  • Cardinals' Mike Nugent: Rejoins active roster

    Nugent was promoted to the Cardinals' active roster from the practice squad Friday, Kevin Zimmerman of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    The 38-year-old will handle kicking duties for Arizona again Saturday with Zane Gonzalez (back) on injured reserve. Nugent is 5-for-5 on field-goal attempts and 6-for-6 on PATs in his two games with the Cardinals, so he figures to retain the kicking job down the stretch with another solid performance this weekend.

  • Mike Nugent: Heads back to practice squad

    Nugent reverted to the Cardinals' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Nugent converted on four extra points and a field-goal attempt of 40 yards during Sunday's 33-26 win over the Eagles, but he's moving back to the practice squad just as he did this time last week. The 2005 second-round draft choice of the Jets is a perfect 5-for-5 on field goals and 6-for-6 on PATs over his first pair of 2020 appearances for the Cardinals. He's liable to be called back up for a Week 16 matchup against the 49ers with Zane Gonzalez (back) out for the season.

  • Cardinals' Mike Nugent: Set to kick down the stretch

    Nugent has been added to the Cardinals' active roster.

    Meanwhile, Zane Gonzalez (back) was placed on IR by the team, which sets the stage for Nugent to have the opportunity to kick in the Cardinals' final three regular-season contests. While filling in during Arizona's 26-7 win over the Giants in Week 14, Nugent went a perfect 4-for-4 on field-goal tries, en route to scoring 14 points.

  • Cardinals' Mike Nugent: Kicking for Cards in Week 15

    The Cardinals will promote Nugent from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Eagles, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

    Nugent will step in as Arizona's kicker in place of Zane Gonzalez (back), who is set to miss a second straight game. In last week's win over the Giants, Nugent converted all four of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries.

  • Mike Nugent: Shuffles back to practice squad

    Nugent reverted to Arizona's practice squad Monday, per Mason Kern of SI.com.

    The veteran kicker was fantastic in relief of Zane Gonzalez (back) in Week 14 against the Giants, going a perfect 4-for-4 on field-goal tries ranging from 30 to 37 yards. There remains the possibility for a performance-based promotion of Nugent in the coming weeks. Gonzalez has been shaky at best in 12 appearances for Arizona this season, converting just 72.7 percent of his 22 attempts.

  • Cardinals' Mike Nugent: Expected to join active roster

    Nugent will be elevated from the practice squad with Zane Gonzalez (back) officially out, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

    Previously the emergency option for the Cardinals, Nugent will take over Zane Gonzalez's (back) role as starting kicker. The 38-year-old was decently successful during his stint with the Patriots, making five of his eight field-goal attempts. Gonzalez, on the other hand, hasn't had a solid season this year, missing six field-goal attempts to date.

  • Mike Nugent: Joins Cardinals' practice squad

    Arizona signed Nugent to the practice squad Friday.

    Nugent appeared in four contests with the Patriots last season, a span in which he converted five of eight field-goal tries with two misses from inside the 40-yard line. He'll now serve as an emergency option behind Zane Gonzalez for the Cardinals.

  • Patriots' Mike Nugent: Two misses versus Browns

    Nugent made two of four field-goal attempts and all three extra-point tries during Sunday's 27-13 win over the Browns.

    Nugent had one of his field-goal attempts blocked Sunday, and he also missed a 34-yard try. Through four games with New England, Nugent is now 5-for-8 on field-goal attempts and 15-for-16 on extra-point tries. It's worth noting that the Patriots opted to go for it on fourth down on multiple occasions rather than attempt long field goals, indicating the team may not fully trust Nugent outside of short-range attempts.

  • Mike Nugent: Sent packing by Pats

    The Patriots released Nugent on Tuesday, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.

    Nugent's stint in New England ends after four games, with his two missed field goals from inside 40 yards Sunday against the Browns likely the last straw. The Patriots will seek another replacement for the injured Stephen Gostkowski (hip) in the coming days.
