Saints kicker Wil Lutz out for season after rehab setback
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Saints kicker Wil Lutz says he will be out for the rest of the season.
In a tweet, Lutz says he suffered a setback during the rehabilitation process that “has forced me to shift my focus to being 100% healthy for the long term and shut it down for the season.”
Lutz also congratulated rookie Brian Johnson on his first NFL debut and for kicking a 33-yard game-winner in a sloppy Seattle slugfest.
Lutz underwent core muscle surgery in August.
The 27-year-old kicked in all 16 games for New Orleans in 2020, converting on 23 of 28 field-goal attempts and 57 of 58 extra-point tries.
