Mike Nugent Kicking On The Side Field

Mike Nugent suffered a calf injury while practicing onside kicks last week. The Bengals quickly signed veteran Josh Brown, who converted four field goals, including a 52-yarder to give Cincinnati a nine-point lead with 6:45 remaining in the game.

Nugent reportedly did some work during pregame warmups on Sunday but he's been limited on what he can do. On Tuesday Nugent started kicking on the side field without the approach. Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said after Tuesday's practice that "Nuge kicked the last few days. It feels pretty good."

However he's not expected to be ready by Thursday night, so that leaves Brown again.
