Caleb Sturgis To 'Miss Several Weeks'

Report: Eagles kicker Caleb Sturgis to miss 4 weeks

The Philadelphia Eagles reacted promptly at kicker.

Caleb Sturgis is expected to miss four weeks after suffering a hip injury on the opening kick Sunday and is expected to miss four weeks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. They also signed rookie Jake Elliott off Cincinnati's practice squad to replace him.

Elliott was a fifth-round pick in April after graduating from Memphis as the school's all-time leading scorer with 445 points.

The Philadelphia Eagles earned a victory in their first game of the season on Sunday afternoon, defeating the Washington Redskins by a score of 30-17.

Elliott, 22, was 4 for 7 on field goals during the preseason, while Bullock was 6-for-7.

The NFL passed a rule this offseason allowing teams the option to activate two players from the Injured Reserve list after eight weeks where it was previously only one. He connected on all three field goals, including a 50-yarder, and went 1 for 2 on extra points.
