Redskins sign kicker Potter

The Washington Redskins have signed kicker John Potter as their

contingency plan in case Kai Forbath is unable to kick in Sunday’s

game against the Green Bay Packers.

To make room for Potter on the roster, the Redskins released

fourth-string quarterback Pat White.

Forbath has a sore groin in his kicking leg. It first flared up

in practice on Thursday.

Potter was with the Redskins during the preseason. He was cut on

Aug. 26.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
