The Saints may need a new kicker for the start of the season.

New Orleans kicker Wil Lutz is dealing with a groin injury that may sideline him into the start of the season, and they are trying out kickers as potential replacements, according to Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football.

Lutz has been the Saints’ kicker for five years and has never missed a game, so the Saints aren’t accustomed to having to find replacements for him.

Multiple reports have Lutz missing 8-12 weeks, which means he’s likely to miss multiple games early in the season.

  1. OK OK. so everything that went right the last 4 years for NOLA is coming to an end.

    I am starting to think that their QB situation is going to be the least of their issues.

  2. Saints starting lineup issues are getting outlandish. If I recall,Lutz had a “minor” injury in the latter portion of last season an thereafter missed many more kicks than typical for him. I hope this is not ANOTHER should have been fixed in the off-season sort of thing. Btw,the punter will be a new face as Morstead retired as well.

  3. Geez, what next! C’mon Saints no more injuries, suspensions or whiney overpaid wide receivers. Let’s start this season strong; not limping into it! Geaux Saints! ⚜️

  4. Dang, the hits keep coming. The team is in for a wild ride but should be ok…hopefully
