Eagles K Caleb Sturgis (hip) is unlikely to be activated off injured reserve.
Sturgis is eligible to return after being placed on injured reserve following Week 1, but the Eagles are happy with Jake Elliott at kicker. "I would say right now there’s no reason to make a change," ST coordinator Dave Fipp said. It is a tough break for Sturgis, who connected on 85.4 percent of his kicks last year and all but one extra point. In the final year of his deal, Sturgis should easily find a new home in free agency.

Eagles placed K Caleb Sturgis (quad) on injured reserve.'s Ian Rapoport reports Sturgis will be a candidate for return, but he'll be out at least eight weeks. If Jake Elliott performs well in Sturgis' absence, the Eagles may not bother activating him. Sturgis was one of the league's better kickers in 2016, but the Eagles could end up with bigger I.R./return fish to fry.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Eagles K Caleb Sturgis will "miss several weeks with a quad strain in his plant leg."

It is unlikely the Eagles will burn a roster spot on a kicker if he is going to miss multiple games, so it is possible he is sent to injured reserve with the intent to bring him back later in the season. Philly will work out kickers this week.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson is not sure Caleb Sturgis (hip) will be able to play Week 2.

Eagles K Caleb Sturgis will miss Thursday's preseason game after suffering a concussion in warmups.

Sturgis wasn't wearing a helmet and got blindsided by a ball. It's noteworthy because Sturgis is battling Cody Parkey for the starting job. His injury could decide the competition.

Caleb Sturgis appears to have a "little edge" over Cody Parkey for the Eagles' starting kicker job, according to CSN Philly's Dave Zangaro.

Parkey enjoyed a strong rookie year in 2014 but a groin injury limited him to just three games last season. Sturgis converted 18-of-22 field goals in his absence and it appears he'll open camp as the favorite for the starting job. "That's a great battle going on right there," said head coach Doug Pederson. "Not making any decisions today on that spot, but I like what I've seen out of both of them."

Eagles signed K Caleb Sturgis, formerly of the Dolphins.

Cody Parkey (groin) is headed to injured reserve. Sturgis has a big leg, but is just a 77.5 percent career field goal kicker. Typically 80 percent is considered the "acceptable" threshold. With the Eagles' offense off to a slow start, Sturgis isn't necessarily a plug-and-play replacement for Parkey.

Sturgis joins Nick Novak and perhaps other at the Saints' tryout. It appears Zach Hocker's days in New Orleans are numbered.

Dolphins K Caleb Sturgis (quad) was a full participant for the start of training camp.

Dolphins K Caleb Sturgis suffered his left quad injury in a "team-organized kickball event."

Sturgis is out for the remainder of OTAs, and questionable for training camp. Already in grave danger of getting cut, Sturgis will have no shot at keeping his job if he's not ready when the Dolphins report late next month.

Dolphins K Caleb Sturgis (quad) may not be ready for training camp.

NFL kickers need to stay healthy and make kicks or they'll be replaced. Sturgis has done neither, previously battling a groin issue and missing 16-of-71 field goals through two NFL seasons. Andrew Franks is currently the only other kicker on the Dolphins' roster, but they're expected to add a veteran shortly.

Dolphins K Caleb Sturgis is not participating in OTAs due to a quadriceps injury, and will miss the rest of the offseason program.

The severity of the injury, which is to Sturgis' plant leg, is currently being evaluated. Sturgis' grip on the starting job was already considered shaky after missing 16-of-71 field goals in his two NFL seasons.
