Raiders' Mike Nugent: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nugent (hip) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The transaction officially rules Nugent out for the next eight weeks, leaving Matt McCrane to handle the kicking job Sunday against Cleveland. The Raiders may eventually look at other options if McCrane struggles, which is a distinct possibility given that he has never kicked in a regular-season game.

Raiders' Mike Nugent: Raiders sign another kicker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oakland signed kicker Matt McCrane with Nugent dealing with a hip injury, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Nugent came out of Sunday's 28-20 loss to the Dolphins with a hip injury. While Nugent hasn't officially been ruled out, the move to sign McCrane likely signals he'll miss a game or more.

Raiders' Mike Nugent: Dealing with hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nugent came out of Sunday's 28-20 loss to the Dolphins with a hip injury and could miss time as a result of the issue, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

If Nugent was playing through pain Sunday, it wasn't evident in his numbers, as the veteran kicker converted field-goal attempts from 25 and 52 yards and drilled both of his extra-point tries. The injury nonetheless prompted the Raiders to stage a workout Tuesday for multiple kickers, suggesting the team might be preparing for life without Nugent for at least the Week 4 matchup with the Browns, if not additional games to follow. More clarity on the Raiders' plans should come later in the week, when the team would likely announce the signing of any potential replacement for Nugent.

Raiders' Mike Nugent: Boots 52-yarder in Week 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nugent connected on both of his field-goal attempts and added a pair of extra points in Sunday's 28-20 loss to the Dolphins.

Nugent was perfect from 25 and 52 yards in Week 3, adding the 50-plus yarder with less than a minute left in the contest to make it a one-score game late. The 36-year-old has yet to miss a field-goal attempt in six tries this season as he looks to maintain his momentum against the Browns in Week 4.

Raiders' Mike Nugent: Blocked extra point leads to one-point loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nugent made a pair of field goals from 26 and 46 yards to go along with an extra-point conversion in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Broncos.

Nugent also had an extra-point attempt blocked following Marshawn Lynch's one-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, which ultimately proved costly as the Raiders lost by one. Nugent is perfect on four field-goal attempts through the first two weeks of the season, totaling 14 points and two makes from 40-plus.

Raiders' Mike Nugent: Flawless in season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nugent made both his field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point try en route to seven points in Monday night's 33-13 loss to the Rams.

Nugent's Raiders debut saw him knock in field goals from 24 and 48 yards during the second quarter. Although Oakland's offensive struggles meant he wasn't called upon during the second half, this weekend's matchup in Denver should at least present favorable kicking conditions.

Raiders' Mike Nugent: Locked in for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nugent is locked in as Oakland's kicker after Eddy Pineiro (groin) was placed on injured reserve over the weekend, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Pineiro was placed on IR before roster cuts, officially ruling him out for the entire season. The 36-year-old Nugent offers a wealth of experience, but he's never had the strongest leg and owns an underwhelming 81-percent career conversion rate on field goals. Nugent will make for a low-end fantasy option in Week 1 with the Raiders offense facing a tough Rams defense.

Raiders' Mike Nugent: Dependable in preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nugent converted his only field-goal attempt during Thursday's preseason finale against the Seahawks.

With Eddy Pineiro (groin) sidelined, Nugent took care of the Raiders' only field-goal attempt of the game and made it count, booting a 51-yarder through the goal posts early in the second quarter. Given how Pineiro hasn't practiced in over two weeks, at this stage it seems likely that Nugent opens Week 1 as Oakland's starting kicker.

Raiders' Mike Nugent: Could start season as kicker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jon Gruden indicated it is "very possible" Nugent could start the season as the Raiders' starting kicker, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Nugents' competition, Eddy Pineiro, has been sidelined for about two weeks with a groin injury. Pineiro figures to still have the upper hand in the job battle, as he is a rookie with more long term potential. However, Nugent may have to start the season as the team's kicker should Pineiro's health not be up to par.

Raiders' Mike Nugent: Drills only field goal Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nugent converted on his only field goal attempt, a 31-yard try, during Saturday's 19-15 preseason loss to the Rams.

Nugent took the only attempt of the game for the Raiders since Eddy Pineiro didn't make the trip due to a groin injury. The Raiders signed the veteran kicker to battle Pineiro, an undrafted rookie, after they cut Giorgio Tavecchio. Although Nugent is a legitimate contender for the job, the 13-year age difference between the two makes it Pineiro's job to lose.

Raiders' Mike Nugent: Heading to Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nugent signed with the Raiders on Friday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Nugent was signed after the Raiders waived Giorgio Tavecchio on Friday, all but crowning rookie Eddy Pineiro with the starting job. The 36-year-old will compete for that role as well, but he's being brought in to mentor the 22-year-old Pineiro more than anything.

Bears' Mike Nugent: Converts only attempt in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nugent knocked down his only field-goal attempt -- from 55 yards -- in the Week 17 loss to the Vikings to finish the season making 11 of 13 field goals in eight games between the Cowboys and Bears.

Nugent's 84.6 percent success rate was his best since 2011, and he's hovered between 79 and 83 percent for the majority of his 11-year career. The unrestricted free agent will likely have a chance to compete for a starting job with a team during training camp, with his fantasy value largely connected to his landing spot.

Bears' Mike Nugent: Misses extra point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nugent did not attempt a field goal but missed one of his three extra-point tries in Sunday's 20-3 win over the Browns.

Nugent has scored 15 points in three appearances since joining the Bears. Including his four games with the Cowboys earlier this season, he's missed just four of 28 total attempts.

December 17, 2017 01:40 AM
Bears' Mike Nugent: Scores four points in Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nugent converted a field goal and extra point in Saturday's loss to the Lions.

Nugent was good from 41 yards out on his only field-goal attempt of the contest, but he ended with a disappointing four-point fantasy performance. Although he scored nine points in his debut with the team last week, playing for an inconsistent offense makes him a shaky fantasy option.

Bears' Mike Nugent: Nine points in Chicago debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nugent converted both of his field-goal attempts while connecting on three of four extra-point attempts in Sunday's victory over the Bengals.

Nugent took advantage of one of Chicago's best offensive performances of the season as he posted the second-best fantasy performance by a Bears kicker this season. He could be a sneaky fantasy option, as Chicago kickers have been provided with multiple field goal opportunities in five of their last six games.

Mike Nugent: Set to join Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears plan to sign Nugent to replace Cairo Santos, who re-injured his groin during Sunday's 15-14 loss to the 49ers, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Nugent previously filled in for the Cowboys' Dan Bailey, who also dealt with a groin injury but returned for Week 13. Given the state of Chicago's offense, Nugent will be among the least attractive options at his position. It doesn't help that he's never been good from distance, connecting on just 11 of 28 field-goal attempts from beyond 50 yards in his career.

Mike Nugent: Officially released by Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nugent was officially released by the Cowboys on Monday, according to

With Dan Bailey (groin) healthy again, there's no place for Nugent on the Cowboys' roster. The 35-year-old will finish his four-game tenure in Dallas having made seven of nine field-goal attempts and all eight of his PATs.

November 26, 2017 12:00 PM
Cowboys' Mike Nugent: Will be released
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys are slated to release Nugent in the near future, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Although Dan Bailey didn't attempt an extra point or field goal in his return Thursday, the Cowboys are confident he's past the groin injury that forced four DNPs in a row. As a result, the team doesn't have a need for a second kicker and will cut Nugent loose.

November 23, 2017 03:24 PM
Cowboys' Mike Nugent: Inactive Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nugent (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Thursday against the Chargers, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Nugent is yielding kicking duties to Dan Bailey, who has overcome a groin injury to end a four-game stretch of DNPs. Assuming Bailey doesn't falter or suffer another ailment, Nugent is a candidate to be released in the coming days.

November 22, 2017 02:52 PM
Cowboys' Mike Nugent: Could surrender kicking duties in Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Dan Bailey (groin), who is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Chargers, anticipating playing in the contest, Nugent may not handle placekicking duties for the Cowboys in Week 12, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Despite Bailey's imminent return, it appears the Cowboys will keep Nugent on the roster this week, and it sounds like both kickers could be active Thursday. Bailey, who has missed the last four games while battling a groin strain, said he's experiencing slightly more stress on kickoffs than field goals, so Nugent could be called upon to handle the former duties if he ends up dressing for the Thanksgiving Day contest. However, if his point-scoring opportunities come to an end, Nugent would lose all of his fantasy value.
