The New England Patriots are reportedly moving on from kicker Kai Forbath after less than a week with the team.
According to ESPN’s Field Yates, the Patriots waived Forbath Monday and, in a corresponding move, picked up defensive tackle Albert Huggins from the Philadelphia Eagles.
The move leaves the Patriots without a kicker once again. However, the door is very much open for Nick Folk to return to the team after he was cut last week.
The Patriots brought in Forbath after Folk had his appendix removed on Thanksgiving. The Patriots scrambled to find a veteran replacement, bringing in Forbath, who worked out with the team during their initial kicker search earlier this year.
Forbath went 1-for-1 on field goal attempts and 1-for-2 on extra points for the Patriots in their loss to the Houston Texans.
