Tampa Bay Bucs kicker Mike Nugent on target Tuesday in practice



Mike Nugent, battling Matt Bryant for the starting placekicking job, was four-for-five in practice Tuesday morning. He hit field goals of 40, 42, 42 and 45-yards, and missed on a 45-yarder.”I feel good,” he said. “I think today’s a really good day for practice. Being a right-footed kicker, a wind like this – blowing from left to right – it’s a little in your face. You’d rather have it at your back. But it’s good to practice in this. Everything felt real solid and you just have to realize, just because the wind might be blowing a little different, don’t think about it. You factor it in and try to hit the same ball every time.”
