When the season began, Eagles K Alex Henery was the second-most accurate kicker in NFL history at 87.9 percent.

Three games later, we’re wondering about his job security.

Such is life for placekickers.

Henery, the Eagles’ third-year kicker from Nebraska, has missed field goal attempts in consecutive games for the first time in his career.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story points out, they haven’t been easy kicks -- 46 yards against the Chargers, 48 yards against the Chiefs -- but they have raised the issue of whether the Eagles can rely on Henery to make big kicks at big moments moving forward.

By selecting Nebraska's Alex Henery in the fourth round on Saturday, Andy Reid essentially signaled the end of David Akers' 12-year career here. The Eagles will not keep two kickers on their 2011 roster, and they certainly will not be willing to scratch Henery a check for the $450,000 roster bonus he would be due in the event they cut him.

So Akers is out, Henery is in. Era over. Thanks for playing.
