An report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport suggests otherwise.
It is yet to be know if Parkey will be healthy enough to resume his game with Eagles for the weekend.
Philadelphia Eagles kicker Cody Parkey (1) reacts after missing a 44 yr field goal against the Atlanta Falcons within the fourth quarter at the Georgia Dome.
While the revelation that the groin injury Parkey suffered during the preseason may actually be the reason for his poor play thus far this season, hopefully ruling out simply regression, it’s likely little solace to an Eagles fan base that hasn’t had much to cheer about this year.
Chip Kelly, the head coach of the Eagles team has clarified that the tryouts today are only for sake of precautions in case Codey is unable to play the game scheduled later this week.
While the signing of a kicker is not a major surprise after hearing about Parkey’s injury.
However, he is 6 for 13 in his career from 50 yards or more.
Sturgis had a disappointing first two seasons with the Miami Dolphins, when he connected on just 77.5% of his field goal attempts.
The Dolphins selected Sturgis in the fifth round of the 2013 National Football League draft out of Florida. Parkey made all 54 of his extra-point attempts and 32-of-36 field-goal attempts to break the rookie scoring record of 144 points set by Chicago Bears place-kicker Kevin Butler in 1985.
