The long-time Patriots placekicker had his fair share of struggles through four weeks, going just 11-for-15 on PAT attempts, as well as missing a field goal.
The injury to Gostkowski is to his right hip, according to 98.5 the Sports Hub’s Jim Murray –– and injury that will require surgery.
Gostkowski joins Isaiah Wynn, N’Keal Harry, and James Develin on the injured reserve list –– with only two eligible to return this season. Time will tell on who the Patriots will replace their kicker with, but in the meantime, the search begins in Foxboro.
