Cody Parkey placed on IR - [Full Article]

A source close to the situation confirmed a report from the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that the Eagles will place kicker Cody Parkey on injured reserve and sign former Dolphins kicker Caleb Sturgis.

Earlier, Eagles coach Chip Kelly said tests on Parkey and kicker auditions Monday were "precautionary" after Parkey "got hurt in warmup a little bit yesterday."

Asked if a roster move for a kicker was imminent, Kelly said: "No. Everything's precautionary, just to make sure."

Fantasy Impact: 

Parkey struggled a bit this year after struggling late very last season. He started 2014 on fire after coming over in a trade with the Colts. He did hit his only attempt in Week 3 but missed an attempt in both Weeks 1 and 2. Sturgis certainly has some fantasy potential if the Eagles offense can get back to form.
