Kai Forbath questionable for Sunday
By John Keim
ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins placekicker Kai Forbath is questionable for Sunday's game at Green Bay with a groin injury, possibly forcing the Redskins to find a short-term replacement.
Forbath told coach Mike Shanahan on Thursday that his groin was sore. He's been receiving treatment ever since and Shanahan said Forbath told him he "didn't think it was anything but a little more sore today."
Shanahan said Forbath will kick on Saturday to determine whether or not he'll play Sunday. The Redskins will bring in other kickers just in case Forbath is unavailable. Shanahan said one option is John Potter, whom they cut in training camp. Potter has a strong leg on kickoffs -- and even made a 63-yard field goal during camp. But he was inconsistent on other attempts. As of Friday afternoon, his agent said he had not been contacted.
Meanwhile, strong safety Brandon Meriweather is listed as probable after missing Monday night's loss with a groin injury.
