DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Former Pro Bowl kicker Nate Kaeding has signed with the Miami Dolphins, who placed kicker Dan Carpenter on injured reserve because of a right groin injury.

Kaeding joined the Dolphins on Friday. Carpenter, a former Helena High and University of Montana kicker who went 22 for 27 on field-goal tries this season, first appeared on the injury report Thursday.

Kaeding is the most accurate field-goal kicker in NFL history at 87 percent (180 of 207), and he made the Pro Bowl in 2006 and 2009. He had been a free agent since he was released from injured reserve by the San Diego Chargers on Oct. 30.

He made all seven field-goal tries in three games with the Chargers this year before being sidelined by a groin injury.

The Dolphins (6-8) host Buffalo on Sunday.
