Vinatieri missed his only field-goal attempt from 52 yards, but made all three extra-point attempts in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.

EDGE Analysis

Vinatieri had made 2 of 3 field-goal attempts from 50 yards or more before Sunday, so this shouldn't be a cause for concern. However, he had made 12 of 15 attempts (80 percent) from 50 yards the previous two seasons.

Vinatieri (right groin) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Through seven games to date, Vinatieri has recorded 53 points, numbers that have made him a serviceable fantasy option this season. He uncharacteristically missed two extra points last weekend, but the 45-year-old kicker will be out there Sunday, now just five points shy of breaking Morten Andersen's NFL record for career points (2,544).

EDGE Analysis

Vinatieri (groin) was spotted at Friday's practice, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Vinatieri was unable to practice Wednesday due to his groin injury, but it looks like he will be able to get some kicks in for a second day in a row. His status for Week 8 has not yet been decided, but there is reason to believe he will give it a go.

Vinatieri (groin) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Though Vinatieri's reps were still restricted on some level after he was withheld from the Colts' first practice of the week, the veteran kicker seemingly boosted optimism about his availability for Sunday's game against the Raiders based on the observations of those who watched him during the session. According to George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin, Vinatieri drilled about seven consecutive field goals early in portion of practice available to the media, converting those kicks from various distances. If Vinatieri is ultimately cleared to kick in Week 8, he'll have a good chance at setting the NFL's career scoring record, as he sits just five points shy of passing Hall of Famer Morten Andersen's all-time mark.

Vinatieri (groin) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Colts still hope that the veteran kicker will be available for Sunday's game against the Raiders, but he's starting the week off on the wrong foot by missing Wednesday's session. Vinatieri still has two more opportunities to practice this week and the team has yet to sign a kicker, suggesting his playing remains on the table.

The Colts maintain hope that Vinatieri will recover from his groin injury in time to serve as the team's kicker Sunday against the Raiders, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

As a contingency plan in the event Vinatieri fails to make meaningful progress this week, the Colts auditioned Kai Forbath, Cairo Santos and Taylor Bertolet in a workout Tuesday. The Colts have declined to sign any of those players, however, which supports the notion that the 45-year-old is likely on track to kick Sunday. Those counting on Vinatieri in weekly formats will still want to track his progress in practices Wednesday through Friday to ensure he'll be available once the weekend arrives. Vinatieri has converted 12 of 14 field-goal attempts and 17 of 19 extra-point tries through the Colts' first seven games of the campaign.

EDGE Analysis
