Patriots waive kicker Kai Forbath, claim defensive tackle Albert Huggins

Kai Forbath lasted just one game in New England before being cut after missing an extra point

The New England Patriots waived kicker Kai Forbath on Monday, according to sources. Folk was released on Friday to clear a place for Forbath on the active list. 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.

Stephen Gostkowski, who has served as the team's starting kicker since he was drafted in 2006, underwent season-ending hip surgery in October. They rank No. 4 out of the six teams now occupying an AFC playoff spot in field goals made from 40 yards or beyond. The 5-foot-11, 197-pounder converted one field goal and one-of-two extra-points attempts at Houston on Sunday.

Huggins, 22 originally entered the National Football League as a rookie free agent with the Houston Texans out of Clemson on May 10, 2019. Philadelphia resigned from the 6-foot-3 and 304-pound defensive lineman at Clemson University just two days ago.

Red Wings drop ninth in row as Alex Ovechkin gets hat trick
Georgiev made 11 saves in the first period, 10 in the second and 12 in the third to get New York's first shutout of the season. The first-line winger blocked Shea Weber's slap shot with his back before beating an out-of-position Elliott.

The 35-year-old Folk would knock down seven of his nine attempts in three games with the Patriots (his two misses came in some downright bad weather at Gillette in New England's 13-9 win over the Cowboys), but was ultimately released when an appendectomy knocked him out of commission for this past Sunday's loss in Houston.

Albert Huggins struggled to make a dent in the Eagles defensive line rotation and after being released by Philadelphia, he's been claimed by New England.

Gostkowski, who has won three Super Bowl titles with the Patriots, is expected to be available to return for the 2020 season.
