Nick Folk had to undergo an appendectomy on Thursday, according to CLNS Media, and will most likely miss the Week 13 game at Houston.

The NFL Network is reporting that the procedure was “minimally invasive” and that it’s likely Folk won’t have to miss much time, but that doesn’t do much for the Patriots this weekend: They’ll need to add a kicker to the roster sometime in the next few days.

It’s been a year of kicking struggles for the Patriots. First, Stephen Gostkowski got off to a rocky start and then went to the injured reserve with a left hip injury in early October.

They added veteran kicker Mike Nugent, who stuck around for the whole month of October before getting cut on the 29th.

Since then, the Patriots have stuck with Folk, who had last kicked in the NFL in 2017. In his three games in 2019, he’s 7-for-9 on field-goal attempts, and has made all three of his extra-point attempts.
