Gostkowski kickoff

Stephen Gostkowski is set to be a free agent, and Coach Mike Vrabel indicated there will be competition in camp at the position whether or not Gostkowski returns to the Titans.

Kicker Stephen Gostkowski was placed on the Covid-19/reserve list by the Tennessee Titans on Monday, which means he will miss the Titans regular season finale against the Houston Texans.

The Titans need to win in order to take the AFC South and clinch a playoff spot.

Gostkowski had struggled early in the season, but had righted his problems and had made six straight field goals since missing eight field goals the Titans first nine games of the season.

To replace him, the Titans have Sam Sloman, who was signed earlier in the season to the practice squad after being released by the Los Angeles Rams following week 7.

Sloman was 8 of 11 on field goal attempts this season before his release.
