Kicker Caleb Sturgis is being released by the Los Angeles Chargers, according to NFL insider Adam Schefter on Twitter.
Sturgis has been bothered by a quadriceps injury and has been dreadful when on the field, missing six of his 15 extra point tries on the season, including two more in Sunday's win over the Seahawks. Rookie kicker Michael Badgley is still on the Los Angeles practice squad and is likely to be promoted to replace Sturgis.
Caleb Sturgis was 0-for-1 on field goal and 1-for-3 on extra point attempts in the Chargers' 25-17 win over the Seahawks Sunday.
Sturgis has struggled mightily and is likely to be released by the Chargers following three more misses this week.
Caleb Sturgis converted 2-of-3 field goal and 2-of-3 extra point attempts in the Chargers' 26-10 win over the Raiders Sunday.
Sturgis missed his fourth extra point of the year in addition to a missing from 48 yards on one of his field goal attempts against the Raiders. It is hard to trust him for fantasy despite playing on an elite offense.
Caleb Sturgis was 3-for-4 on field goal and 0-for-2 on extra point attempts in the Chargers' 29-27 win over the 49ers Sunday.
Sturgis continues to be inconsistent and is difficult to trust in fantasy. The Chargers lead the league with eight extra point misses since the start of last season.
Caleb Sturgis was 1-for-1 on field goal and 2-for-3 on extra point attempts in the Chargers' 35-23 loss to the Rams Sunday.
Sturgis converted his opportunities Sunday aside from a blocked extra point. He is a viable fantasy option in a strong offense going forward.
