Forbath re-signed with the Redskins on Thursday.

Forbath had been a restricted free agent, but will stay with the organization for his fourth NFL season. His field goals made total has increased with each year in the league, resulting in a career-best 103 points in 2014. The 27-year-old will be the favorite to win the job once again in 2015, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Washington bring in a little competition during camp.

Forbath was 2-for-2 on field goals and 3-for-3 on extra points in Saturday's 27-24 victory over the Eagles.

Forbath drilled the game-winner, a 26-yard field goal with five seconds remaining. Despite the heroics, he is still not a strong fantasy option for Week 17's matchup with the Cowboys given Washington's struggles to consistently move the ball this season.

Forbath did not attempt a field goal in Sunday's 24-0 loss to the Rams.

Forbath (groin) participated fully in Tuesday's practice.

As was the case the previous two weeks, Forbath is still nursing the groin injury, but it doesn't look like it will keep him unavailable for Thursday's tilt with the Giants. Forbath nailed 2-of-3 field goal attempts and four extra points in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, the second straight week in which he's reached double-digit scoring.

Forbath (groin) is active Sunday at Philadelphia, Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Washington reports.

Forbath will likely settle between his lines from the first two weeks as the season rolls along. To date, he's nailed two field goals and is 5-of-6 on extra points.

Forbath (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against Philadelphia.

Forbath played last week after logging two limited practices, and this week he logged a full practice in addition to two limited practices. He therefore seems to have a good chance of playing Sunday.

Forbath (groin) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice.

Forbath was also limited on Wednesday; however, he already played through his groin issue last Sunday, going perfect on five extra points and two field goals. As such, the Redskins are likely just allowing their kicker to rest once again in an effort to ensure he's able to kick come game-time Sunday.
