The Pats are looking at 45-year-old Sean Landeta to take over their punting chores.
The New England Patriots placed punter Ken Walter on injured reserve Tuesday with a knee injury — the second punter the team has lost for the season in the past month. Walter, 34, was signed by the Patriots on Nov. 22 to replace Josh Miller, who is out with an injured shoulder. Walter played in four games, punting 16 times for a 37-yard average with five punts inside the 20.
His loss also affects the Patriots’ field-goal unit; Walter was valuable as kicker Stephen Gostkowski’s holder.
Sean Landeta, a 22-year veteran who turns 45 next month, was in for a workout Tuesday and appears to be an option. Landeta punted for the Giants when Belichick was on New York’s staff in the 1980s.
