The Washington Redskins were making contingency plans Friday to identify a possible replacement for place kicker Kai Forbath if one is needed Sunday in Green Bay.
Last year, the Redskins went into New Orleans armed with an offensive game plan that the Saints didn't know was coming. Robert Griffin III and his offensive teammates ambushed the Saints, who had won 13 games and the NFC South the year before, and walked out with an impressive 40-32 win.
The Redskins could be forced to make a roster decision today as kicker Kai Forbath is listed as questionable with a groin injury. If they don't feel he can go, they will be signing kicker John Potter who was in camp with them this year. Potter only handled kick-off duties in the preseason, but did get opportunities in practice with field goals and extra points. For Potter to be signed though the Redskins will need to cut someone currently on the 53 man roster.

On Sunday the Redskins will have their eyes on No. 52 for the Packers. Outside linebacker and pass rusher Clay Matthews is one of the NFL's premiere defensive players and he will be spending Sunday afternoon trying to make sure that Robert Griffin III doesn't get comfortable enough to find the groove that eluded him much of Monday night.
