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, 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.

Receiver Davone Bess (back) and linebacker Koa Misi (ankle) were ruled out for Sunday's game against Buffalo. Among those listed as questionable were receiver Brian Hartline (back), cornerback Nolan Carroll (knee) and defensive tackle Randy Starks, who has missed practice this week because of a personal matter.

Hartline and Carroll practiced Friday on a limited basis.

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