San Diego Chargers kicker Nate Kaeding #10 is attended to by a member of the medical staff after suffering a leg injury against the Minnesota Vikings during the first quarter at Qualcomm Stadium on September 11, 2011 in San Diego, California. The Chargers defeated the Vikings 24-17.

Chargers kicker Nate Kaeding is scheduled to have an MRI exam Monday on what could be a serious injury to the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Kaeding was hurt during the opening kickoff Sunday, which Minnesota's Percy Harvin returned 103 yards for a touchdown. The Chargers rallied to win 24-17.

Punter Mike Scifres had to take over place-kicking duties. He made the first field goal of his nine-year NFL career, a 40-yarder that helped the Chargers rally.

If Kaeding is lost for the season, the Chargers will likely try to sign a replacement as soon as possible.
