The San Diego Chargers have placed kicker Nate Kaeding on injured reserve and plan to release him when he's healthy.
Kaeding kicked in the first three games before injuring his groin. In 2011, he blew out his left knee on the season-opening kickoff.
He is the most accurate kicker in NFL history, making 180 of 207 field goal attempts, or 87 percent.
However, he's best known in San Diego for missing three field goal attempts in a 17-14 home playoff loss to the New York Jets in January 2010, San Diego's last postseason appearance. He also was wide-right on a 40-yard attempt in overtime that would have beaten the Jets in a playoff game following the 2004 season. The Jets moved down the field and won it 20-17 on Doug Brien's 27-yarder.
Kaeding's roster spot went to wide receiver Danario Alexander, who signed a one-year deal.
