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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Nugent made his only field-goal attempt (from 34 yards) in Monday night's 33-0 win over the Jets, en route to recording seven points in the contest.
Nugent, who missed an extra-point attempt in his debut with the Patriots back in Week 5, has now combined for 21 points in three games since Stephen Gostkowski (hip) landed on IR. Given his favorable team context, Nugent profiles as a decent fantasy option for the next couple of weeks, in advance of New England's Week 10 bye.
Nugent converted all five extra-point attempts and missed his only field-goal attempt in Thursday's 35-14 win over the Giants.
It was a fairly windy evening with 13-mph winds at the start of the game, and Nugent was unable to overcome them as his lone field-goal attempt hit the left upright. The 37-year-old is off to a bit of a rocky start in New England, going 8-for-9 on extra points and 2-for-3 on field goals through two games.
Nugent made both of his field-goal attempts in Sunday's 33-7 win over Washington, en route to recording nine points.
Nugent's first game with the Patriots since taking over for Stephen Gostkowski (IR-hip) got off to a rough start, when he went wide right on an extra-point attempt. The kicker then got back on track by hitting field goals of 37 and 23 yards in the second quarter and adding a trio of successful extra points. Nugent doesn't have the job security Gostkowski did prior to his injury, but as long as he's able to work behind the New England offense, he'll be on the fantasy radar.
Nugent is expected to sign with the Patriots, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Just one day after Gostkowski was sent to injured reserve with season-ending left hip surgery on tap, the Patriots found their newest place kicker in Nugent. Gostkowski was busy through the first four games of the season, hitting seven of his eight field goal attempts but also missing four of his 15 extra points. Nugent, who appeared in just three games last season with Oakland, should be in for a decent-sized workload himself in New England.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
