  1. Coach Mike Shanahan confirmed that they would work out several placekickers Tuesday. According to CBS Sports, they’ll look at Olindo Mare, Josh Brown and Kai Forbath. For now, Billy Cundiff remains the starting kicker. Cundiff has missed five of his last eight field goal attempts and four of his last five — three of those kicks have been less than 42 yards. Shanahan said he was pleased with the long snapping and holding, though there is a chance they’ll work out long snappers as well.
  2. Safety Brandon Meriweather suffered second- and third-degree sprains of his MCL and PCL in his left knee, the same one that kept him out of the first three games, and will miss at least another four weeks. Meriweather was injured in a pre-game collision with receiver Aldrick Robinson two hours before the Tampa Bay game. The Redskins had planned for Meriweather to start at strong safety, but he hasn’t played since the preseason.
  3. Right tackle Jammal Brown went to New York to visit his doctor about his surgically-repaired hip. Shanahan said he’s going through “football related drills.” Brown is on the physically unable to perform list and can’t return until after the sixth game. Shanahan said doctors “feel there’s a chance for him to be back after the bye week.” The Redskins have a bye on Nov. 11.
