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.

Fantasy Impact:

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

Mike Nugent expected to miss Week 14
Thursday, December 6, 2012, 5:33pm

Bengals - [Full Article]

It's believed to be only a calf tweak that probably takes Bengals K Mike Nugent out of Sunday's game against the Cowboys (1 p.m.-Cincinnati's Channel 19), but unfortunately for the Bengals it happened with their short week looming. The freshly-signed Josh Brown may have to also kick in Philadelphia next Thursday (8:20 p.m.-NFL Network) against the Eagles. With 10 days off until playing in Pittsburgh, Nugent should be OK by then.

Fantasy Impact:

Brown should be solid in Nugent's absence if there aren't good options available on the waiver wire.
