The San Diego Chargers have signed kicker Nick Novak to replace Nate Kaeding for Sunday's game at Kansas City.
To make room for Novak on the roster, the Chargers released offensive lineman Reggie Wells.
Kaeding hurt his groin in practice Friday.

Kicker Nate Kaeding suffered a groin injury this week in practice. Though it was a mere strain, the kicker was unable to continue in today's practice and is on a 'day-to-day' basis.
Though he is listed as questionable now, the Bolts will likely not take the chance of having the kicker either miss an important field goal or injure himself further.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is expected to play on Sunday even though he was listed as questionable with a groin injury.
Bowe has been off to a nice start this season with 18 receptions for 234 yards and 2 touchdowns.
The Kansas City Chiefs are back where we expected them to be. The San Diego Chargers are just back.
During an ugly, turnover-laced game Sunday, the Chargers' 37-20 dismantling of the Chiefs crystallized just how bad of a football team Kansas City has become. Quarterback Matt Cassel threw three picks, Jamaal Charles coughed up two fumbles, Shaun Draughn added another for good...
