Adam Vinatieri’s quest to become the NFL’s career scoring leader could be put on hold because of a groin injury.
   He reinjured his kicking leg Sunday when he two missed extra points. It was the first time in Vinatieri’s 23–year career he missed multiple extra points in a game.
   Coach Frank Reich acknowledged Monday that Vinatieri had an MRI on his right leg and was uncertain if Vinatieri would play next weekend in Oakland. He also said the Colts will try out kickers this week before making a decision on Vinatieri.
   The Colts (2–5) have a bye week after the Oakland game.
   Vinatieri scored five points against Buffalo to move within five of surpassing Morten Andersen’s total of 2,544 points.
