Redskins strong safety Brandon Meriweather and place kicker Kai Forbath remain questionable for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions and will be evaluated Saturday before a decision on their status.

The Redskins have monitored Meriweather for concussion-like symptoms all week long. He practiced in a limited capacity on Wednesday and Thursday, and then on Friday said, “I did what I could,” but didn’t know if he would play on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Forbath is nursing a groin injury that forced him to miss last week’s game at Green Bay. He didn’t practice on Friday but will attempt some kicks on Saturday, coach Mike Shanahan said. Fellow place kicker John Potter remains on the roster in case Forbath can’t kick against the Lions.

Also listed as questionable for the Redskins on Friday: wide receiver Leonard Hankerson (hamstring), defensive end Stephen Bowen (knee) and defensive end Kedric Golston (abdomen). Nose tackle Barry Cofield (hand) is listed as probable.
