The Redskins will not bring in any kickers for workouts this week.
Billy Cundiff nearly cost the Redskins a win in Week 4 by missing from 41, 57 and 31 yards out. But he saved his job by sneaking a game-winning 41-yarder inside the uprights. Cundiff, of course, shanked a 32-yarder in last year's AFC Championship Game, costing his Ravens a chance at overtime. He's should be on a short leash going forward.
