Philadelphia Eagles PK Alex Henery is expected to be cut, as two individuals with knowledge of the situation said Friday, Aug. 29, that PK Cody Parkey has landed a spot on the 53-man roster.
Huddle Up: Parkey went 3-for-3 in field goals Thursday night, including hitting two attempts from beyond 50 yards. That impressive performance likely secured his roster spot. Parkey will be a solid fantasy option in the Eagles' high-scoring offense, while Henery will look to hook on elsewhere.

Philadelphia Eagles PK Carey Spear is not expected to win the kicker job over PK Alex Henery during training camp.
Huddle Up: Henery, a fourth-round pick in 2011, made a career-low 82.1 percent (23-of-28) of his FG attempts in 2013, but the college free-agent Spear is there to give him a training-camp nudge.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said the team will be sticking with PK Alex Henery even though he has made only two of his five field goal attempts this season. 'I do have confidence in him,' Kelly said. 'I know [special teams coordinator Dave Fipp] has confidence in him, I think he's a real accurate kicker. But from a kicking standpoint, I'm pretty confident in him.'
Huddle Up: Henery opened the season as one of the most-owned fantasy kickers given the Eagles' high-scoring offense, but it's always kind of tough to have confidence in a PK who's missed more kicks than he's made.
