McPherson converted both field-goal attempts and both PATs during Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Rams in Super Bowl LVI.
EDGE Analysis
It was a strong finish to the successful playoff run for McPherson, as he went 14-for-14 on field goals and 6-for-6 on PATs in four contests, though he didn't receive an opportunity to tie the game in the fourth quarter Sunday. The 22-year-old enjoyed a successful rookie campaign, going 28-for-33 on field-goal attempts and 46-for-48 on extra points. McPherson is a safe bet to open training camp as Cincinnati's kicker for 2022.

McPherson (groin) fully participated in Tuesday's practice session, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
McPherson was inactive for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Browns due to a groin injury, but it appears as though he's back to full health. The 22-year-old should be available for Saturday's wild-card matchup against the Raiders after Elliott Fry filled in during the Bengals' Week 18 loss to the Browns.

McPherson (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
McPherson's first absence of the season was foreshadowed Saturday, when the Bengals promoted another kicker (Elliott Fry) from the practice squad. Fry will thus step in to handle kicking duties in place of McPherson, who should be ready to go for the wild-card round. The fifth-round rookie out of Florida turned in a productive regular season, connecting on 46 of 48 extra-point tries and 28 of 33 field-goal attempts, including a 9-for-11 mark from 50-plus yards.

McPherson (groin) appears unlikely to play Sunday against the Browns after kicker Elliott Fry was elevated from the Bengals' practice squad Saturday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
McPherson appeared to be trending in the right direction ahead of Week 18 but was still listed as questionable against the Browns. If he's ultimately inactive, he'll fall one field goal shy of setting the Bengals' single-season scoring record.

McPherson (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
McPherson was limited at practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he fully participated in Friday's practice session and is trending in the right direction ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale. Across his last four appearances, the rookie has made 10 of 12 field-goal attempts while converting all 11 of his extra-point tries.

McPherson (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice session, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
McPherson was productive in Sunday's win over the Chiefs to help Cincinnati clinch the AFC North crown, but he apparently sustained a groin injury during the contest. If he hopes to avoid the Bengals' final injury report for Week 18, he'll likely need to practice fully Thursday or Friday.

McPherson made both of his field-goal attempts and all four of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 34-31 win over the Chiefs.
EDGE Analysis
With the Bengals offense chugging along once again, McPherson had plenty of work to do, although it mostly came after touchdowns. His 20-yard kick to win it as time expired was among the easiest he's ever had in terms of distance while simultaneously being probably the most pressure-packed in terms of importance. The rookie has now put up at least nine points in four straight games.

McPherson made two of his three field-goal attempts and all five of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 41-21 win over the Ravens.
EDGE Analysis
Joe Burrow, who threw for a career-high 525 yards, continued to move the Bengals' offense into scoring position, which meant a big day for the rookie kicker. However, after nailing a 30-yard attempt to open the scoring and adding a 36 yarder at the end of the third quarter, McPherson pushed a 50-yard field goal wide right with five minutes left to go in the game. The 22-year-old is now 26-for-31 on the season, including 9-for-11 from 50-plus yards.

McPherson made all three of his field-goal attempts in Sunday's 15-10 win over the Broncos.
EDGE Analysis
McPherson has now made three field goals in each of the last two games, and he converted a pair of attempts from 50-plus yards in the first half of Sunday's win. The 22-year-old has now made 24 of 28 field-goal attempts while converting 37 of 39 extra-point tries this season.

McPherson made three of four field-goal attempts while converting both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 26-23 overtime loss to the 49ers.
EDGE Analysis
McPherson converted both of his field-goal attempts in the first half of Sunday's matchup, but he missed a 46-yarder wide left late in the third quarter. In spite of Sunday's missed field-goal attempt, he's made multiple field goals in three of the last four games and has converted 10 of 11 field-goal attempts while making 10 of 12 extra-point tries during that time.
