It appears the Indianapolis Colts may decide to go from one ex-New England Patriots kicker to another this season.

With the 46-year-old Adam Vinatieri continuing to struggle, the Colts brought in four kickers for workouts on Tuesday, according to ESPN's Field Yates.

One of those kickers was Mike Nugent, who briefly filled in for the injured Stephen Gostkowski in New England before being replaced by Nick Folk.

Vinatieri is 14-for-19 in field goal attempts this year and 14-for-20 in extra points. The former Pats hero missed a crucial PAT during the Colts' loss to the lowly Dolphins on Sunday.

The 11 total missed kicks tie Vinatieri's career high set way back in 1996, when he missed eight field goals and three PATs as a 23-year-old rookie.

As for Nugent, the 37-year-old went 5-of-8 for field goals and a nearly perfect 15-of-16 in extra points in four games with the Patriots.
