Bengals place Nugent on IR

Updated: December 28, 2012

The Cincinnati Bengals placed kicker Mike Nugent on injured reserve Friday.

Nugent suffered a right calf strain during practice on Dec. 5 and has been out
of action ever since. Over 12 games this season, Nugent has connected on 19-
of-23 field goal attempts and went a perfect 35-for-35 on extra points.

Josh Brown will handle the kicking duties for the Bengals’ season finale
against the Baltimore Ravens.

To fill the roster spot, the Bengals signed cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris from
the practice squad.
