The end of an era for one of the NFL’s greatest kickers is looming. Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri is fighting a knee injury and is doubtful this week, and possibly quite longer.
The timing of Vinatieri’s injury is actually good with the Colts being able to claim the talented young Chase McLaughlin off of waivers.
Indianapolis have been eying McLaughlin for some time and he is a probable heir apparent to Vinatieri. While with San Francisco this season, McLaughlin made 7-of-8 kicks.
