Starter Adam Vinatieri still note recovered from surgery

Indianapolis has decided to use kicker Matt Stover instead of Adam Vinatieri during this year’s playoffs.

Colts coach Jim Caldwell said Thursday that Stover had done a “great” job since joining the Colts after Vinatieri had knee surgery on his kicking leg in October. Caldwell said Vinatieri is not yet 100 per cent.

But the Colts will keep Vinatieri, the best clutch kicker in league history, on the active roster.

Vinatieri has four Super Bowl rings, three while playing in New England and one with Indy. He has 1,525 career points.

Stover won his only Super Bowl with Baltimore in 2000, and is one of four kickers to top 2,000 points. He has 2,004.

Both kickers also rank among the NFL’s top 15 in field goals made.
