The New England Patriots waived kicker Kai Forbath on Monday, three days after he was signed to replace Nick Folk, who had an appendectomy last week. But according to the latest report, he's already been released. The move comes a day after the veteran missed an extra point in a 28-22 loss to the Texans.

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick looks on during the fourth quarter against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. New England will likely re-sign Folk for the stretch run. The Patriots have had four kickers play throughout the span of 12 games this season and they're going through an unusual time with the kicker position.

Forbath made his only field goal, 23 yards, but it was only 1 of 2 in extra points.

Qualcomm promised to bring 5G to more affordable price points back at IFA 2019 and has delivered with the Snapdragon 765 and 765G. The Galaxy S11 and LG G9 are other smartphones that we can expect to see with new flagship chipset in the first quarter of 2020.


The New England Patriots announced that they have claimed DL Albert Huggins off waivers from Philadelphia. The 5-foot-11, 197-pounder converted one field goal and one-of-two extra-points attempts at Houston on Sunday.

The Patriots are expected to re-sign Folk, but that isn't necessarily a given due to Folk's struggles this season.

The New England Patriots don't have a kicker or an open roster spot as of Tuesday morning, so we should expect a couple moves before Sunday's much-anticipated Week 14 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs at Gillette Stadium. The 6-foot-3, 305-pounder was released by the Texans on August 31, and signed to the Texans practice squad on September 2.
