Adam Vinatieri to undergo season-ending surgery on knee injury

Adam Vinatieri

Adam Vinatieri will not kick again for the Indianapolis Colts this season, and it is quite possible we have seen the last of the future Hall of Famer in the NFL.

Vinatieri missed Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a knee injury, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that he is scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery.

Vinatieri converted just 1-of-4 field goals in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans, and Colts coach Frank Reich revealed this past week that the 46-year-old is dealing with a knee issue. While Vinatieri’s age is likely a factor, the knee injury helps explain why he has converted a career-low 68 percent of his field goals this season and missed six extra points.

Vinatieri turns 47 later this month, and he openly considered retirement after a bad couple of games to start the season. It would not be a surprise if this is the end of his remarkable NFL career.
