The Patriots will continue looking at options to replace kicker Stephen Gostkowski on Thursday.
According to multiple reports, Younghoe Koo will work out for the team. Koo was 3-of-6 on field goals and 9-of-9 on extra points in four games for the Chargers in 2017. He kicked in the Alliance of American Football earlier this year.
The team is also bringing in Josh Gable, who spent time at one of New England’s rookie minicamps and is best known for YouTube videos showing off both trick shots and a strong leg.
New England Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski will have season-ending surgery for a left hip injury, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Wednesday.
Gostkowski, the Patriots’ all-time leader in points and field goals, has been placed on injured reserve. He is expected to be ready for the 2020 season.
Younghoe Koo (Korean: 구영회, pronounced YOUNG-way; born August 3, 1994) is a South Korean-born American football placekicker who is currently a free agent.
