It was noteworthy that rookie kicker Justin Rohrwasser didn’t kick much during the first week of training camp.

"Nick’s come in and obviously done a good job with us as we put him on the practice squad and want to continue to work with him," Belichick said.

That’s likely why Belichick described the competition between Folk and Rohrwasser as a "pretty close gap" on Friday, which was 24 hours before cut-down day.

The Patriots could have Folk and Rohrwasser compete this week and then elevate one to the 53-man roster before Sunday’s game against Miami.

New NFL rules state that each team can elevate two practice squad players to the game-day roster and have them play.
