Nick Folk not worried about field goals

IRVING -- Kicker Nick Folk has struggled this season. He's 13th among kickers in the league with a 73.7 percent field goal percentage.

But that's not the half of it. Folk is just 4-8 from 40-49 yards this season, a sharp contrast from his previous two years in the league where he went 17-18.

"A little funk," Folk said Monday. "I got to work my way out of it right now."

Folk said he's not too concerned because he's hitting the ball well. On the 46-yarder he missed on Sunday, Folk said he hit it well, but it just stayed right. The last kick he missed, a 38-yarder in Green Bay the previous week, Folk said he just missed it.

"I feel good, I hit the ball really well, it stayed a little to the right," Folk said. "I dont know I got to go look at it. it felt good coming off my foot had a good week of practice."

Folk said health wise he feels pretty good. In the first two seasons, Folk would start getting ready for the season in April. But in this offseason, Folk underwent hip surgery and wasn't able to kick until two weeks before training camp in early July.

Folk said he's confident in his abilities to make kicks and that he's just starting to find a groove.
