Eagles' Caleb Sturgis: Finishes season on IR despite recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sturgis recovered from his torn flexor during the regular season but remained on injured reserve due to the success of replacement kicker Jake Elliott, David Weinberg of The Press reports.

Sturgis suggested he was healthy around mid-December. It was no surprise the Eagles chose to ride Elliott through the end of the season given how well the rookie was performing, and it paid off considering Elliott finished the season having made 26 of 31 field goals and subsequently turned in a 7-for-7 showing in the playoffs. The 28-year-old Sturgis will now be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year, and he will presumably need to look for work outside of Philadelphia with Elliott under contract through the 2018 campaign.

Eagles' Caleb Sturgis: Showing improvement, but activation unlikely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sturgis, who was placed on injured reserve after suffering a left hip flexor tear in the season opener, is said to be nearing a return to full health, but the Eagles aren't expected to activate him from IR at any point, Les Bowen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Jake Elliott, the kicker who replaced Sturgis on the 53-man roster after Week 1, remains in the concussion protocol, but Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said he expects the rookie to receive clearance in advance of Sunday's game against the Bears. Even if Elliott ends up being ruled out for that contest, it's uncertain if Sturgis would be ready to kick in Week 12 if needed. With that in mind, it's more likely than not that Sturgis won't make another appearance for the Eagles, given that he's set to become a free agent this offseason and Pederson has previously pledged his commitment to Elliott, who has nailed a franchise-record five field goals of 50 or more yards this season.

Eagles' Caleb Sturgis: Unlikely to be activated from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said there haven't been any discussions about activating Sturgis (quadriceps) off injured reserve when the kicker is eligible to return in Philadelphia's Week 10 matchup with Dallas, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Sturgis was moved to IR after he came out of the Eagles' Week 1 win over the Redskins with a left quad strain. The injury was only expected to keep Sturgis out for four weeks, but even though he's presumably at or near full strength at this juncture, it doesn't sound like the Eagles are eager to bring him back onto the 53-man roster. That's largely due to the success of Sturgis' replacement at kicker, Jake Elliott, who has knocked down 17 of 20 field-goal attempts -- including five makes from 50-plus yards -- and 24 of 27 extra-point tries since being signed Sept. 12.

Eagles' Caleb Sturgis: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sturgis (hip flexor) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Sturgis has been given a timetable of four weeks after suffering the injury in his plant leg. With the open roster spot, the team will sign Jake Elliot off of the Bengals' practice squad to fill in for Sturgis in his absence.

Eagles' Caleb Sturgis: Four-week absence expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sturgis (hip flexor) is expected to be out four weeks, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

With Sturgis facing a multi-week absence, the Eagles are in line to sign another kicker in short order. In Week 1, the 28-year-old made all three of his field goal attempts (including a 50-yarder) en route to a 10-point effort in Sunday's 30-17 win over Washington.
