Bengals kicker Mike Nugent says he's not sure if his right calf is going to be ready for the Steelers.

"It's one of those things you keep trying to go out there and make it feel better every day," said Nugent. "It feels better every day. Treatment and time."

He says it's going to depend on how it feels late in the week. Asked if he thinks a competition has broken out with him and Brown, Nugent says that's not a question for him.

Josh Brown has made all six of his field goal attempts filling in for Nugent.
