Forbath injured his groin this week and his condition worsened Thursday, with coach Mike Shanahan listing him as questionable on Friday's injury report. Forbath made 17-of-18 field goals last season, but missed his only attempt - a 40-yarder -- against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday. He will work out later Saturday night and/or Sunday morning when the Redskins will decide if he'll be able to kick or not.
Potter was with Washington in training camp and showed a strong leg on kickoffs. He also made a 63-yard field goal in one practice, but was inconsistent on his other kicks. It was not a close competition. Potter served as a kickoff specialist for Buffalo for part of last season, with 13 touchbacks on 26 kickoffs. But he has never attempted a field goal. Shanahan said Friday he would not have two kickers active for the game.
The Redskins had yet to announce who they would cut as of early Saturday afternoon.
