Kai Forbath K WAS 3 Days

With Zach Hocker released Saturday, Forbath has won the Redskins' kicking battle, The Washington Post reports.

Forbath beat out the seventh-round draft choice, but he may be working with a short leash this season. He's never hit a field goal from longer than 50 yards, and while his team's offense has tons of potential, it's one of the more volatile units in the league. In the world of kickers, Forbath is one of the riskier options, with both a low floor and high ceiling.

Forbath struggled in Thursday's preseason opener, missing a 46-yard field goal in the second quarter, and then sending a kickoff out of bounds in the third, the ESPN 980 Radio reports.

Further adding to his woes, Forbath missed a "practice" attempt in the first quarter when his kick was nullified by a delay of game penalty on the Redskins. He did convert the subsequent 40-yarder, but it was still an overall terrible performance. Meanwhile, Zach Hocker went 2-for-2, albeit on a pair of short field goals.
