NEW ORLEANS — Saints kicker Wil Lutz announced on Twitter that he will be out for the remainder of the season.

In a tweet, Lutz says he suffered a setback during his rehab that has forced him to "shut it down for the season.”

The Georgia native congratulated rookie kicker Brian Johnson on his first NFL debut and for making a 33-yard game-winning kick in the Black and Gold's 13-10 win over Seattle on Monday, Oct. 25.

Lutz underwent surgery in August to repair his core muscle.

The 27-year-old kicked in all 16 games for the Saints in 2020, converting on 23 of 28 field-goal attempts and 57 of 58 extra-point tries.
