I was thinking yesterday (first mistake) that having Folk on the PS for the first two weeks of the season allows the Pats better able to stash Nordin after week 2. Pats elevate Folk week 1, get the "free" revert to PS after the game. Elevate Folk week 2, waive Nordin after the game/Monday/whatever. At this point of the season, no team is likely desperate for an unproven kicker, so it isn't worth a waiver claim on Nordin (as I understand, he'd need to be added to the 53 man roster... that is the key part of this logic... a team couldn't make a waiver claim to stash him). Then the Pats sign Nordin to the PS for the rest of the year. Is that about right?
I think that's exactly the plan.

Hoyer slides into spot vacated by future kicker Nordin (stashed on IR). Nick Folk (K) and Tashawn Bower (DE) elevated from practice squad. M Reiss tweets that Bower is depth since KVN out with injured throat.
How many times can you elevate from the PS? 2? So they would have to put Folk on the real roster next week. They will need a spot for him. Phantom IRing Nordin does cause a problem if Folk were to get hurt.

My sense is the ab strain, while convenient, is also legit. As you mention, there would be no reason to IR Nordin at that point. Folk was probably up to stay anyways for reasons you mentioned, with the idea of sliding Nordin to the PS. It will be interesting to see if they bring back Aguayo short-term to the PS.
