Ashburn, VA – The Washington Redskins signed John Potter on Saturday to presumably handle kicking duties for this weekend's game against Green Bay.
Regular kicker Kai Forbath injured his groin in practice during the week and had been listed questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Packers.
Potter spent training camp with the Redskins before being waived on Aug. 26. The second-year pro appeared in six games as a kickoff specialist with Buffalo during his rookie season of 2012.
The Redskins waived fourth-string quarterback Pat White in a corresponding move.
White, a second-round pick of the Dolphins in 2009 who spent the past two years out of football, earned a spot on Washington's roster with a strong preseason but was inactive for Monday's season-opening loss to Philadelphia.
