The Bengals have a new kicker for the injured Mike Nugent, as the team has inked former Ohio State University kicker Aaron Pettrey.
Nugent was lost for the season after tearing a knee ligament during a successful onside kick play in the closing minutes of Sunday’s 23-17 loss at Indianapolis.
Pettrey joined Carolina in April as a college free agent, was waived, then played in one preseason game for Detroit. He missed a 42-yard field goal try and made a point-after kick.
The Bengals also Tuesday signed free agent offensive tackle Kirk Chambers, a sixth-year NFL player from Stanford who has played for the Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills.
