Kicker news! It's unknown exactly how much time the Chargers' Nate Kaeding will miss because of his groin injury. There were hints this week that he might be headed to injured reserve, but Kaeding said Thursday that he will kick again this year and considered himself "day-to-day."
Here's what is known: The groin injury will force Kaeding to miss his second consecutive game. He was officially ruled out on Friday, meaning Nick Novak will assume the usual duties again. The Chargers visit the Saints on Sunday night.
Drop Kaeding if you haven't already done so. I know he has been one of the best kickers in years past, but in the end, he's just a kicker. Production is unpredictable, and they are pretty much a dime a dozen in fantasy. Novak made three field goals last week, and he's just as good as anybody else this week since the football should be moving up and down the field Sunday night.
