Folk (quadriceps) has resumed kicking, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports. Folk sustained a Grade 1 quadriceps strain during pregame warmups in Week 9, and his fate for the season was sealed just two days later when he landed on injured reserve. In a seven-game sample prior to the injury, his success rate on field goals (13-for-16, or 81.3 percent) was in line with his career mark of 80.6 percent. Of note, though, was a perfect 19-for-19 from the new extra-point distance, which ensures his stature as the Jets' clear-cut kicker, assuming he regains his previous prowess.
The Jets placed Folk (quad) on injured reserve Tuesday. It appeared Folk would be able to return to action later this year despite straining his quad Sunday against the Jaguars, but the Jets ultimiately decided to place him on injured reserve, which opens up a roster spot but brings Folk's season to a close. Randy Bullock will take over as the Jets' kicker moving forward.
Folk is expected to miss a month due to a Grade-1 quadriceps strain, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports. As a result, the Jets reportedly worked out Billy Cundiff, Garrett Hartley, Kyle Brindza and Randy Bullock on Monday, as the team scrambles to line up a new kicker in advance of Thursday's game against the Bills.
Folk is dealing with a Grade 1 quadriceps strain and is not expected to play Thursday against the Bills, Newsday reports. After suffering a quad injury in warm-ups in advance of Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Folk was limited to holding duties, while punter Ryan Quigley served as the team's place-kicker in the contest. With Folk currently ailing, look for the Jets to sign another kicker in short order.
Folk (quadriceps) was injured during pre-game warm-ups and never had a chance to kick Sunday against the Jaguars, Folk is set to undergo an MRI on Monday. In his absence, Ryan Quigley took over kicking duties against the Jaguars, but it wouldn't be a surprise if the Jets worked out free agent kickers this week.
