Kicker Nugent Frustrated by Lingering Groin Injury

Bengals kicker Mike Nugent isn’t a happy camper these days. And he’s none too happy about it. He is battling a groin injury that took away a week of camp for him, and Sunday vs the Broncos he had to sit out the second half when the injury flared up.

The injury clearly seems to be getting the better of him, and it’s tough since he’s been healthy for his career up to this point.

“If you’re someone who has been kicking on a team for 10 years then you know you’re going to be the guy. You can chill out and be ready for the season,” said Nugent, knowing full well that isn’t the case here. “Obviously whoever kicks better is going to be the guy. You don’t want to put bad things on film or kick poorly.”

Special teams coach Darrin Simmons said he is hopeful that Nugent will be able to play on Friday when the team is at home to take on the new look Eagles.
