Struggling Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri working ‘to get the demons out’

Adam Vinatieri has had far better starts over his 24-year career, but that doesn’t mean he’s giving up.

Despite reports that he was considering hanging up his helmet once again, the Colts kicker indicated that retirement has never been on his mind.

“None of us should assume stuff,” Vinatieri told reporters Tuesday (per the IndyStar).

Vinatieri has missed two field goals and three extra points for Indianapolis in the first two games of the season, which is unusual for the NFL’s all-time leading scorer, but he’s trying not to get discouraged.

“Sometimes we all need a little time to decompress, I needed a little extra time,” he said. “Little time to clear my mind… I’m going to work this week to get the demons out and be clear headed on Sunday.”

Vinatieri admitted it’s easy to overthink things but said he’s watched extra film over the last couple weeks to see what corrections he can make. He’ll have the opportunity to put any amendments to the test Sunday against Atlanta.

“I’m always my worst critic when it comes to that. Obviously, it’s not been a good start to the season,” he said.

Added Vinatieri: “I think there are always physical and mental aspects of football. I’m going to go out there and try to make it cleaner… I feel fine. I feel good enough. I feel plenty healthy to do my job.”

The Colts are slated to host the Falcons at 1 p.m. ET Sunday, with both teams entering Week 3 at 1-1.
