Nov. 5 (UPI) -- The Los Angeles Chargers have released kicker Caleb Sturgis.
Los Angeles announced the transaction on Monday, following the team's 25-17 win against the Seattle Seahawks. Sturgis missed two extra point attempts and a 42-yard field goal during the victory.
The 29-year-old veteran leg is 9-of-13 on the season and is 9-of-15 on extra points.
Los Angeles signed Michael Badgley to replace Sturgis. Sturgis entered the league as a fifth-round pick by the Miami Dolphins in the 2013 NFL Draft. The University of Florida product played two seasons for the Dolphins before joining the Philadelphia Eagles in 2015.
For his career, Sturgis has made 80 percent of his field goals and 93.7 percent of his extra points.
Badgley -- a University of Miami product -- is 3-for-3 on the season and has made all seven of his extra point attempts for the Chargers. The Chargers cut Badgley last week after Sturgis returned from a quad injury.
The Chargers face the Oakland Raiders in an AFC West clash at 4:05 p.m. on Sunday in Oakland.
