This morning, the Miami Dolphins placed kicker Dan Carpenter and placed him on injured reserve with a groin injury.  He has been placed on IR.  Carpenter was hitting on just over 81% of his field goals and was off to a slow start before getting on a roll in the past 8 games.   In his place, Nate Kaeding has been signed for the final two games or more depending on how things shake out in the AFC.  Nate Kaeding has made 87% of his kicks for his career.  Kaeding was cut early in the season by the San Diego Chargers after making 7 of 7 in field goals and went down with a groin injury.   An interesting anectdote besides being available is that Kaeding was the kicker at Iowa when Coach Joe Philbin was the line coach from 2000-2002. As of now, the Dolphins have a new kicker and his name is Nate Kaeding.  If Nate Kaeding gets the Dolphins to the playoffs, let's hope his shakiness in the playoffs goes away on a new team!
