    Adam Vinatieri: Still rehabbing knee

    Colts coach Frank Reich said Wednesday that Adam Vinatieri continues to rehab his surgically repaired left knee, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.The update regarding Vinatieri's health partially confirms why he remains unsigned. His performance in his age-48 season likely explains most of it, as he made 17 of 25 field-goal attempts (68 percent) and 22 of 22 extra-point attempts (78.6 percent) last year, easily the worst marks of his storied career. With his plant leg still not 100 percent, Vinatieri may find it difficult to interest an employer. Considering all the unknowns of the upcoming season, though, there's a chance he'll kick again once he can prove his health.

    Adam Vinatieri: Unable to rehab effectively

    Adam Vinatieri is hoping to return to the NFL for a 25th season, but he hasn't progressed as quickly as hoped from December knee surgery, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.Quarantine-related challenges have resulted in a slowdown in Vinatieri's rehab, to the point that it's possible the veteran kicker may not be ready by the time the NFL season gets underway. At the very least, the 47-year-old kicker appears unlikely to return to Indianapolis in 2020, considering the team extended Chase McLaughin and also offered undrafted rookie kicker Rodrigo Blankenship a sizable signing bonus.

    Adam Vinatieri: Could play another season

    Adam Vinatieri (knee) was rehabbing at the Colts' facility earlier this offseason and hasn't ruled out playing in 2020, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.Vinatieri struggled through the worst season of his lengthy career in 2019, missing eight field-goal attempts and six PATs in 12 games before a left knee injury forced him to injured reserve in early December. He's hoping to bounce back from surgery and play a 25th NFL season, but the 47-year-old likely will need to compete with Chase McLaughlin if he does in fact re-sign with the Colts. McLaughlin saw action for three different teams last year, converting 18 of 23 field-goal attempts (78.3 percent) and each of his 26 PATs, with all five misses coming in the 40-to-49-yard range. Vinatieri wouldn't necessarily be the favorite in a job battle.

    Colts' Adam Vinatieri: Future in Indianapolis murky

    Adam Vinatieri (knee), who is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March, is facing competition for the Indianapolis Colts' placekicker position from Chase McLaughlin, Mike Wells of reports.Vinatieri is coming off a down season in which he converted just 17 of 25 field-goal attempts. His campaign came to an early end due to a left knee injury, for which the 47-year-old required season-ending surgery. While Vinatieri hasn't ruled out returning for a 25th campaign, further clarity on his situation likely won't come until later in the offseason. McLaughlin, who received a one-year contract extension from Indianapolis, made five of six field-goal tries in four games with the team.

    Colts' Adam Vinatieri: Hopeful to continue career

    Adam Vinatieri (knee) said Monday that he hopes to have "another chapter left" in his career, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.Vinatieri is set to undergo season-ending surgery on his left knee Wednesday, so a move to place him on injured reserve is almost certainly forthcoming. The 46-year-old battled through lingering meniscus and patellar tendon concerns this season, en route to notching the worst statistical marks of his career. Through 12 contests in 2019, Vinatieri made 17 of 25 field-goal tries and 22 of 28 extra-point attempts. His procedure will carry an expected 4-to-6 week recovery timetable, so he should be ready for offseason workouts if he indeed decides to continue his career for a 25th campaign. The four-time Super Bowl champion is set to become a free agent at the end of the season.

    Colts' Adam Vinatieri: Still waiting on MRI results

    Adam Vinatieri (knee), who sat out Thursday's practice, will await the results of the MRI he required earlier this week before his status for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers is determined, Andrew Walker of the Indianapolis Colts' official site reports.Vinatieri experienced pain in his left knee prior to the Colts' Week 13 loss to the Titans, and the injury only intensified in the aftermath of the contest.
