The Patriots initially had undrafted free agent kicker Nordin on their 53-man roster, but placed him on injured reserve with an abdominal injury with the hope he can return in November, the story said.
With Quinn Nordin on injured reserve, Nick Folk will be the Patriots' kicker for the time being. The Patriots also just signed Folk to the active roster after elevating him from the practice squad twice. But so far, so good for Folk. He is 7/7 on FGs, including 4/4 with a 49-yarder against the Jets, and already has 23 points this season.
