Bill Belichick didn’t commit to bringing kicker Nick Folk back this season

Bill Belichick didn’t commit one way or the other when asked Friday if the Patriots plan on bringing kicker Nick Folk back once Folk is healthy.

“Well, right now we’re going to go down and play Houston, try to go down and beat Houston,” the head coach told reporters Friday. “That’s the intention right now. That’s our goal. So, we’ll worry about next week next week.”

The team’s kicking carousel has included Stephen Gostkowski, Mike Nugent, Folk, and now Kai Forbath, after Folk was released on Friday. Forbath joined the Patriots Friday after Folk reportedly underwent a minimally invasive appendectomy on Thursday.
