PATRIOTS NEWS (AP):
Pats Place Kicker Stephen Gostkowski on Injured Reserve
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The Patriots have placed kicker Stephen Gostkowski on injured reserve.
The team announced the move Wednesday, but didn’t disclose the 35-year-old’s injury.
He is the fourth Patriots player to go on IR this season, joining receiver N’Keal Harry, left tackle Isaiah Wynn and fullback James Develin.
The franchise’s all-time leading scorer, Gostkowski has appeared in every game for New England since 2011. But he’s struggled thus far in 2019, missing four extra points. He hadn’t missed more than three extra points in any of his previous 13 NFL seasons.
He last missed game action in 2010 when he went on IR with a thigh injury and missed the final eight games that season.
Pats Sign Veteran Kicker Nugent to Replace Gostkowski
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The Patriots have signed veteran kicker Mike Nugent to fill the spot created after Stephen Gostkowski was placed on injured reserve.
Nugent’s signing was announced Thursday. The 37-year-old was drafted by the Jets in 2005, spending four seasons in New York. He’s also played for Arizona, Tampa Bay, Cincinnati, Chicago, Dallas and Oakland.
He has appeared in 164 regular-season games, converting 81 percent of his field-goal attempts (253 of 311) and 363 of 377 extra points. He appeared in three games with the Raiders last season, connecting on all six of his field-goal attempts, while going 4 of 5 on extra points.
New England (4-0) visits Washington (0-4) on Sunday.
