Colts' Adam Vinatieri: Competition emerges

Vinatieri (knee) is facing competition for the kicking job after the Colts claimed Chase McLaughlin off waivers from the 49ers on Wednesday, Andrew Walker of Indianapolis' official site reports.

Vinatieri was limited in Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury, an issue which could be related to the discomfort he experienced in his plant leg during the preseason. The 46-year-old has struggled with accuracy issues this season, having already missed a combined 14 kicks through 12 games. In addition to the injury, he now faces a threat for his job in the form of McLaughlin, who recently turned in an impressive three-game stretch while filling in for Robbie Gould. Expect the Colts to decide on a kicker for their Week 14 tilt with the Buccaneers at the conclusion of Friday's practice.
