Vinatieri set for season-ending surgery | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Colts K Adam Vinatieri will undergo surgery on his injured knee and be placed on IR, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. This could be the end of the line for the 46-year-old, who's missed 8 FGs and 6 XPs this season. Chase McLaughlin will continue kicking for the Colts.

Colts K Adam Vinatieri (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bucs. Recently signed Chase McLaughlin will kick in Vinatieri’s place.

Colts K Adam Vinatieri (knee) is "unlikely" to play against the Bucs this weekend, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. "You have to wonder whether perhaps we've seen a legendary kicker's final attempt in the NFL," Pelissero adds. Chase McLaughlin will kick for the Colts at least this weekend -- and maybe beyond.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Monday that Adam Vinatieri will kick for the team in Week 3. Vinatieri seemed to suggest that he was planning to retire after missing his 2nd and 3rd XPs of the season in Sunday's win over the Titans. We'll see if he can turn it around, but Vinatieri shouldn't be in Week 3 fantasy lineups.

Colts K Adam Vinatieri seemed to suggest to The Athletic's Stephen Holder that he's planning to announce his retirement tomorrow. Vinatieri missed 2 more XPs in the loss to the Titans after missing 2 FGs and 1 XP in the opener. The Colts would probably need to cut Vinatieri, so this would be a more ceremonious way for him to go out. Vinatieri turns 47 in December.

The Colts re-signed K Adam Vinatieri to a 1-year deal. Now 46, Vinatieri will return for his 24th NFL season. He remained solid in 2018, hitting 85.2% of his attempts with a long of 54 yards.
