‘‘Kirk has been No. 2 for a reason, because we feel like he’s earned that right,’’ Shanahan said. ‘‘We feel very good about him and where he’s at, but we also have a lot of confidence in Rex as well.’’
Notes: The Redskins will work out kickers to seek a possible replacement for Billy Cundiff, who has missed four field goals in the past two games, including a 31-yard attempt Sunday. NFL kickers are 81 for 86 inside 40 yards this season; Cundiff has two of those misses. ... Shanahan said S Brandon Meriweather, who has two sprained ligaments in his left knee after a pregame collision a week ago, is expected to miss four more weeks.
