    From Reiss's Pieces latest post-

    That's all we need is no kicker to start the season. Anyone hear any legitimate, non-injury reason he'd be missing?

    Could be anything. Let's wait for the injury report.

    I would imagine the kicker isn't neccessarily needed for the full practice though he usuaully practices off tot he side most of the time. If he is on the injury report than that might be a little scary and if we have another kicker in than maybe there is more to worry about

    The Pats just signed a punter to the PS. And the Pats have Welker as a backup kicker, if need be.

    I heard his foot fell off. :rolleyes:

    Did you honestly think you were going to get the answer to your question here. Do you think one of us is Gostkowski or knows more about Gostkowski's situation than those who cover the Patriots?:rolleyes:

    BB decided to let him rest up, as he anticipates him having to kickoff at least ten times on Sunday.

    Just because a player isn't at the media portion of practice doesn't neccessarily mean he is injured or that he didn't actually practice. Ghostowski could have had to meet with the trainer or something like that making him miss the media portion of the practice which is only the stretching part.

    I know Welker kicked in high school (very well, too, IIRC). Does anyone know if he occasionally takes any reps at kicking to be ready for such an emergency? Usually teams have the punter or some other guy with kicking experience practice it at some point in camp.

    Yes he does, although not lately because he has been hurt. I'm sure that if he wasn't hurt BB would have run him out sometime during the Pre-season, but that is exactly the type of "situational football" that they practice.

    I bet you they even have a third option already picked out too. I can only hope that it is Wilfork, (who said last year on EEI that he kicked in High School), I would love to see that!
