Chase McLaughlin: Lands on practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings signed McLaughlin to the practice squad Tuesday, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The Vikings will roll with placekicker Dan Bailey to kick off the 2020 campaign, as expected, with McLaughlin around as an emergency option. McLaughlin filled in admirably for Adam Vinatieri across four appearances with the Colts last season.

Chase McLaughlin: Loses competition with Blankenship
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts will waive McLaughlin, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

McLaughlin filled in for the injured Adam Vinatieri down the stretch last year, but he was beaten out for the Colts' 2020 kicking job by rookie Rodrigo Blankenship.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Slight setback in kicking battle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodrigo Blankenship outperformed McLaughlin in Saturday's scrimmage, making six of seven field goals, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Blankenship made kicks of 33, 37, 41, 52, 56 and 57 yards and missed from 48. McLaughlin made four of seven kicks, converting from 33, 37, 41 and 57 yards and missing from 48, 52 and 56 yards. McLaughlin had performed better than Blankenship in the first scrimmage, so the battle for the placekicking job remains close. However, McLaughlin is still the favorite as a veteran since he made five of six field-goal attempts and all 11 PATs in his stint with the Colts last season.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Lead in kicking job battle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin was 8-for-8 in field goal attempts in Monday's scrimmage at Lucas Oil Stadium and appears to have a lead over rookie Rodrigo Blankenship, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.

Blankenship was 5-for-8 in field-goal attempts, with misses from 39, 44 and 53 yards. McLaughlin looks likely to win the job, but the team may not announce the starting placekicker until shortly before Week 1.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Performing well so far
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin has done well in the Colts' kicking competition thus far, Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star reports.

McLaughlin is competing with rookie Rodrigo Blankenship to replace future Hall of Famer Adam Vinatieri ahead of the upcoming campaign. Despite being pitted against Blankenship, who joins the Colts after a prolific college career at Georgia, McLaughlin has helped mentor the undrafted kicker early in camp. According to coach Frank Reich, both players have fared well while being tested in a variety of ways thus far, so it'll be worthwhile to monitor whether one kicker gains a leg up in the coming weeks.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Receives extension from Indianpolis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin signed a one-year extension with the Colts on Monday.

The 23-year-old served as the Colts' kicker for the final four games in place of Adam Vinatieri (knee), and it makes sense the team would like to keep him around since the veteran isn't guaranteed to stick around for a 25th NFL season. McLaughlin finished the season 18-for-23 on field goals and 26-for-26 on extra points between 11 games with the Chargers, 49ers and Colts.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Makes lone field-goal attempt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin converted his only field-goal attempt and all five extra-point attempts during Sunday's 38-6 win over the Panthers.

The 23-year-old made his only field goal during the third quarter as the Colts were seemingly in command of this contest from the start. McLaughlin is now 3-for-4 on field goals and 9-for-9 on extra points in three games since taking over for Adam Vinatieri (knee).

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Converts lone extra point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin didn't attempt a field goal and made a lone extra-point attempt in Monday's 34-7 loss to the Saints.

The game script kept McLaughlin from making a real impact in this blowout loss. The Colts opted to punt from the Saints' 39-yard line in the first quarter, and that would've been the only chance for McLaughlin to attempt a field goal, as they finished with just 205 yards of total offense. McLaughlin made two of three field goals, including a 50-yarder, in his Colts debut in Week 14, and he'll hope for more opportunities in this Sunday's matchup against the panthers.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Solid in team debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin connected on two of three field goals and all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 38-35 loss to the Buccaneers.

McLaughlin nailed field goals from 50 and 19 yards, but he missed one from 47. This is the rookie's third team of the season, but it should be his last move -- McLaughlin is expected to retain his starting kicker role with the Colts for the foreseeable future, as Adam Vinatieri is set to undergo season-ending knee surgery.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Kicking for Indy in Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin will serve as the Colts' kicker Week 14 against the Buccaneers after Adam Vinatieri was ruled out with a knee injury, Mike Wells of reports.

As anticipated, McLaughlin will step in to kick for his third different team this season after Vinatieri's knee injury prevented him from practicing Thursday and Friday. The Colts haven't yet determined if Vinatieri will be available again this season, as coach Frank Reich said Friday that the veteran is viewed as week-to-week, per Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Likely to kick in Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin is expected to serve as the Colts' kicker Week 14 against the Buccaneers after Adam Vinatieri (knee) expressed doubt about his availability for Sunday's game, Mike Wells of reports. "I don't have an answer," Vinatieri said, when asked Thursday about his status for Week 14 and the rest of the season. "I don't know. We'll see how [the injured knee] feels [Friday] and the next day and the next day."

After experiencing increased discomfort in his left knee, Vinatieri was listed as a limited practice participant on the Colts' first injury report of Week 14, prompting Indianapolis to put in a waiver claim for McLaughlin later that day. Vinatieri underwent an MRI on Thursday, but the Colts are still awaiting the results of the tests before commenting on his availability moving forward. Given that the 46-year-old has already missed a total of 14 kicks (eight field goals, six extra points) and is now in shaky health, McLaughlin could end up holding the job the rest of the season even if Vinatieri's health improves. Though he's been cut by the Chargers and 49ers this season, McLaughlin has been effective during his time with both squads, converting 13 of 17 field-goal tries and all 15 of his extra-point attempts.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Claimed by Indy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts claimed McLaughlin off waivers from the 49ers on Wednesday.

The move comes after veteran kicker Adam Vinatieri (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday. McLaughlin previously kicked for the Chargers and 49ers this season, hitting 13 of his 17 field-goal attempts and all 15 of his extra-point tries across seven games.

Chase McLaughlin: Let go by 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers waived McLaughlin on Tuesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

McLaughlin filled in for Robbie Gould in three contests for San Francisco, converting an admirable seven of eight field-goal tries and all eight extra-point attempts. Given his impressive performance, McLaughlin could be a candidate to draw interest elsewhere in the league should other clubs face kicker issues.

49ers' Chase McLaughlin: Healthy scratch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against Baltimore, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

McLaughlin has filled in admirably for the injured Robbie Gould (quadriceps), going seven for eight on his field goal attempts and nailing all eight of his extra points. McLaughlin's services won't be needed for the 49ers on Sunday, as the aforementioned Gould returns from injury.

49ers' Chase McLaughlin: Huge game on SNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin went 3-for-3 on field-goal attempts and 4-for-4 on extra-point tries in Sunday's 37-8 victory over the Packers.

McLaughlin stayed perfect for the second consecutive week following his ugly shank against the Seahawks back in Week 10. The undrafted rookie continues to start for Robbie Gould (quadriceps), and while the latter is progressing (kicked during practice last week), his status for Sunday's matchup against Baltimore is unclear at the moment. Either kicker would be a solid fantasy option for an offense that is moving the ball with ease recently.

49ers' Chase McLaughlin: Starting against Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin will serve as the 49ers' kicker for Sunday's game against the Packers with Robbie Gould (hip) inactive.

For the third straight game, McLaughlin will work as the team's starting kicker. The rookie has been solid, connecting on four of five field goals and all four extra-point tries. Gould is making progress in recovery, according to Nick Wagoner of, so McLaughlin's days in the Bay Area may soon be numbered.

49ers' Chase McLaughlin: Perfect as fill-in
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin converted his lone field-goal attempt from 43 yards out and was 3-for-3 on point-after tries in Sunday's 36-26 win over Arizona.

McLaughlin didn't suffer any mental blocks after shanking a potential game-winning field goal against Seattle last week, as he was a perfect 4-for-4 overall on kicks in a tight contest. Robbie Gould's (quadriceps) status will be up in the air heading into a primetime matchup against the Packers on Sunday, while the rookie fill-in has likely won back the trust of the team to continue kicking in the event its veteran starter is unable to go.

49ers' Chase McLaughlin: Kicking against Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin will be the 49ers' kicker in Sunday's matchup against the Cardinals because Robbie Gould (quadriceps) is inactive, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

This decision was expected after Gould carried a doubtful tag into this outing. McLaughlin was solid in his first start with the 49ers last week, connecting on three of four field-goal attempts, including two over 40 yards. Although the rookie missed a potential game-winning kick, coach Kyle Shanahan has faith in McLaughlin, who will look to build off of Week 10's performance in this divisional matchup.

49ers' Chase McLaughlin: Likely set for Week 11 kicking duties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin is expected to remain the 49ers' kicker Sunday against the Cardinals with Robbie Gould (quadriceps) listed as doubtful for the contest, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

McLaughlin filled in for Gould in Monday's 27-24 overtime loss to the Seahawks, nailing an extra point and field goals from 39, 43 and 47 yards in regulation but badly missing on a 47-yard game winner will less than three minutes left in the extra period. Despite the misfire, McLaughlin appears set to get another shot at redemption in Week 11, barring an unexpected recovery from Gould over the next two days. The 49ers didn't work out any kickers following the Monday night loss, signaling that they're contend to proceed with McLaughlin until Gould is back to full health.

49ers' Chase McLaughlin: Misses clutch kick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin converted three of four field-goal attempts along with his lone extra-point try in Monday's 27-24 loss to Seattle.

McLaughlin was filling in for the seasoned Robbie Gould (quadriceps), and his inexperience showed when he horribly botched an attempt to win the game in overtime. In his defense, the rookie kicker did convert twice late in the game to tie up the contest. Gould's status is still unclear for Sunday's matchup with Arizona, but McLaughlin would surely get bypassed if the former is ready to play.
