Gostkowski has missed four extra points and one field goal through the first four weeks of the season. He missed practice on wednesday, but there has not yet been an injury reported for Gostkowski.
He has been a big part of the Patriots since 2006. Gostkowski has hit on 87.4 percent of his field goals and 98.3 percent of his extra points in his career. The Patriots have won three Super Bowls with Gostkowski at kicker.
The Patriots have worked out other kickers, but have not signed one yet.
