The Minnesota Vikings invited kickers in for workouts Tuesday, but it doesn't look like the team has any plans of making a change.

According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Vikings will stick with struggling kicker Blair Walsh.

The Vikings haven't said anything officially and haven't identified the other kickers they intended to bring in to take a look at.

However, reports earlier today said kickers Randy Bullock, Travis Coons, Zach Hocker and Kai Forbath were at Winter Park.

Walsh is 12-of-16 on field goal attempts this season and 13-of-16 on extra points. He missed an extra point and had a 46-yard field goal blocked in Sunday's 22-16 overtime loss to the Lions. He also failed to keep the final kickoff of the fourth quarter out of the end zone, allowing the Lions to kneel the ball and keep precious seconds on the clock.

Walsh was once a promising rookie who was All-Pro and set a rookie record when he made 10 field goals from 50-plus yards, but is now ranked 25th among 32 qualified kickers in field goal percentage this season, and 29th in extra-point percentage.

The Vikings have dropped three straight games and play at Washington Sunday.
