The Arizona Cardinals will have a new kicker this weekend in Detroit.
Kicker Neil Rackers has been bothered by a pulled groin and the team wants him healthy for the playoffs. Rackers had an extra-point blocked on Monday in San Francisco. He’s been bothered by this injury for a few weeks now.
Is it the right move? Well, it is from Rackers perspective I think. As for Nugent? Well, I guess I can just hope there was no one better out there. It is crucial to have a strong kicking game the next couple of weeks as the Cardinals continue to battle to win the division.
