Lewis vague on status of kicker Nugent

“A missed PAT, those are things that affect the football team and affect us and our opportunity, but now we are where we are,” Lewis said after Nugent missed his third consecutive extra point in Sunday’s 19-14 loss at Baltimore.

Lewis said the Bengals are not bringing in any kickers for tryouts on Tuesday, but they may not need to. Four weeks ago after the 27-27 tie against Washington, in which Nugent missed an extra point and a field goal, the Bengals tried out Kai Forbath, Zach Hocker and Randy Bullock before electing to stick with Nugent.

The Vikings signed Forbath on Nov. 16, but Bullock and Hocker, who was with the Bengals during training camp but didn’t get a chance to compete against Nugent due to a tendon injury in his plant foot, are still available.

Nugent has missed four of his last eight PATs. And while he was 2 of 2 on field goals of 23 and 36 yards Sunday, he’s only made five of his last eight.
