Dolphins selected Florida K Caleb Sturgis with the No. 166 overall pick.
Sturgis is the first kicker to come off the board in the 2013 draft. He made 24-of-28 field goals as a senior last season, nailing 8-of-9 from 40-plus yards out. The Dolphins are officially putting Dan Carpenter on notice. Miami can save $2.7 million against the cap by releasing Carpenter. Sat, Apr 27, 2013 03:36:00 PM

Florida senior K Caleb Sturgis has been invited to the East-West Shrine Game.

Florida K Caleb Sturgis was not invited to the Senior Bowl.

Only one kicker has been announced for the postseason even, Florida State's Dustin Hopkins, so a second name should surface soon. It may end up being Nebraska's Brett Maher, but that is just a guess.

Florida kicker Caleb Sturgis was supposed to see the field against Georgia this weekend but he has been experiencing pain in his back and will not be able to play.

Sturgis is a decent kicking option when he is healthy but it is time to move on.

According to the Orlando Sentinel via Twitter, Florida kicker Caleb Sturgis could see some work against Georgia.

Florida kicker Caleb Sturgis did not travel with the team due to a back injury. Sturgis could miss 6-8 weeks.

Punter Chas Henry will handle the placekicking duties for the Gators this weekend. But it is probably best to find a more proven option.

Florida kicker Caleb Sturgis is likely to miss today's game after a weight lifting injury.  Sturgis suffered a herniated disc and a stress fracture. 

Surprising this story wasn't revealed by the Gators earlier, as it happened early this week.  Never-the-less, if you have Sturgis, you will want to grab a replacement for today if you can.

Florida coach Urban Meyer says he is happy with his kicking situation but did not say who would kick extra points and field goals this week against Florida International.

Caleb Sturgis has held down the job since week three, but after some recent misses, Jonathan Phillips is back in the mix.  Avoid Florida kickers.

Florida coach Urban Meyer has still not settled on a starting kicker between Jonathan Phillips and Caleb Sturgis.

Sturgis handled the starting assignment perfectly last week against Tennessee, banging home all three field goals and both extra point attempts.  We assume Sturgis will get the first crack at the job against Kentucky on Saturday.

It was Caleb Sturgis, and not Jonathan Phillips, who handled the kicking duties for the Gators on Saturday.  "It's week to week," coach Urban Meyer said about the kicking battle.  "I'm very proud of Caleb, he's talented.''

Obviously kicking battles should be avoided.
