  • Taylor Bertolet: Deal with Chargers runs out

    Bertolet (quadriceps) had his practice-squad contract with the Chargers expire Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Bertolet joined the Chargers' practice squad Oct. 6 and was elevated in Week 5 and 7 to fill in for injured starting kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring). The 30-year-old Bertolet went 3-for-3 on field-goal attempts and made all six of his extra-point tries over these two contests, though he picked up a quadriceps injury and was placed on the practice squad injured list Nov. 3. He then finished the season on this list, and he'll now look to land a new contract ahead of the 2023 campaign.

  • Taylor Bertolet: Dealing with quad injury

    Bertolet landed on the Chargers' practice squad IR after tweaking his quadriceps during practice Wednesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    While the exact severity of Bertolet's injury is still unclear, he won't be able to play until at least the Chargers' Week 13 matchup against the Raiders. The 30-year-old made all three of his field-goal attempts and went 6-for-6 on point-after tries while filling in for injured starting kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) in Weeks 5 and 7. If he comes off the injured list before the end of the season, Bertolet will be eligible for one more elevation from the Chargers' practice squad.

  • Taylor Bertolet: Heads to injured list

    The Chargers placed Bertolet (undisclosed) on the practice squad injured list Thursday.

    Bertolet played in two of the Chargers' last three contests while Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) missed time with separate quadriceps and hamstring injuries. However, the practice-squad kicker is now also dealing with what appears to be a significant injury coming off the team's bye in Week 8, though the exact nature of this issue is still unknown. With Hopkins still sidelined and Bertolet unable to play for at least the next four games, Cameron Dicker should operate as the Chargers' primary kicker after being signed to the practice squad Thursday as well.

  • Taylor Bertolet: Placed back on practice squad

    Bertolet reverted to the Chargers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Bertolet filled in for Dustin Hopkins (quadriceps) once again, making all three of his PATs against the Seahawks on Sunday. With the Chargers going into a bye week, it's possible Hopkins will be healed in time for Week 9 against the Falcons. However, if he isn't, Bertolet will likely be elevated to the active roster once again.

  • Chargers' Taylor Bertolet: Set to kick

    Bertolet was elevated off the Chargers' practice squad Saturday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    Dustin Hopkins (quadriceps) is set to miss a bit of time after heroically carrying the Chargers to a win Monday, setting the stage for Bertolet to kick Sunday against Seattle. The rookie kicker filled in for Hopkins back in Week 5, converting all three of his field-goal attempts and three extra-point tries.

  • Taylor Bertolet: Back to practice squad

    Bertolet reverted to the Chargers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Bertolet received the promotion with Dustin Hopkins (quadriceps) out Sunday against the Browns. He made all three of his field-goal attempts, while also connecting on all three PATs. Depending on Hopkins' status for Week 6, Bertolet could be called upon again to handle the Chargers' kicking duties.

  • Chargers' Taylor Bertolet: Added to active roster

    The Chargers elevated Bertolet to their active roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's game at Cleveland.

    With regular kicker Dustin Hopkins (quadriceps) listed as questionable for Week 5, Bertolet will now be on hand in case he needs to be called upon. The 29-year-old kicker has yet to make his NFL debut, but he will perhaps find himself starting Sunday.

  • Chargers' Taylor Bertolet: Kicking for Bolts in Week 5

    Bertolet is in line to handle kicking duties for the Chargers on Sunday against the Browns with Dustin Hopkins (quadriceps) inactive for the contest, Joe Reedy of The Associated Press reports.

    Bertolet, who went undrafted out of Texas A&M in 2016, will get his long-awaited chance to make his NFL debut after being elevated from the practice squad Saturday. Unless Hopkins' quad injury proves to be a long-term concern, Bertolet may only be in store for a one-game stint as the Chargers' placekicker. Since he'll be tied to one of the NFL's better offenses, Bertolet could make for a startable option in fantasy leagues in Week 5.

  • Taylor Bertolet: Joins practice squad

    Bertolet signed with the Chargers' practice squad Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Bertolet will be insurance for the team if Dustin Hopkins (quadriceps) is unable to kick Sunday against the Browns. The former was last on the Panthers' practice squad, and although he has yet to make his NFL debut, Bertolet has played in the AAF, USFL and CFL previously.

  • Taylor Bertolet: Let go from practice squad

    The Panthers cut Bertolet from the practice squad Tuesday, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Bertolet linked up with Carolina due to starting kicker Eddy Pineiro's hip injury. Pineiro ended up being able to go Week 1 and made all four kicks, so Bertolet will need to wait for another opportunity to show his talents.

  • Taylor Bertolet: Joins Carolina's practice squad

    The Panthers signed Bertolet to their practice squad Friday, Anthony Rizzuti of the team's official site reports.

    Starting placekicker Eddy Pineiro has been dealing with a hip injury, so Bertolet will operate as an emergency option on the practice squad. The 29-year-old Bertolet originally signed with the Rams as an undrafted free agent in 2016, but he's yet to make his NFL debut despite spending time with the Broncos and Jets since then.

  • Taylor Bertolet: Latches on with Minnesota

    Bertolet signed with the Vikings' practice squad Saturday.

    The 28-year-old had a visit with the Packers in early December, but he'll instead be joining their NFC North rival. Bertolet could be called upon if Dan Bailey struggles again Sunday after a disastrous Week 14.

  • Taylor Bertolet: Checking in with Packers

    Bertolet is visiting with the Packers this week, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

    Green Bay's Mason Crosby has missed PATs in back-to-back contests, but he's a perfect 14-for-14 this season on field-goal tries. While the veteran has yet to sit out a game since entering the league in 2007, the Packers are seemingly investigating alternative options in case of an injury or COVID-induced absence. The 28-year-old Bertolet was cut from Carolina's practice squad Dec. 1 and has yet to kick in a regular-season game.
