FOXBORO, MASS. (WHDH) - The New England Patriots have reportedly cut ties with kicker Mike Nugent less than a month after he was signed to replace the injured Stephen Gostkowski.

Nugent was cut by the Patriots on Tuesday, The MMQB’s Alber Breer reported, citing league sources.

Nugent joined New England in early October after Gostkowski was placed on injured reserve with a season-ending injury.

The 37-year-old kicker was shaky in the four games he kicked in, converting on just five of eight field-goal attempts.

It’s not clear who the Patriots plan to sign as a replacement.
