Smith, who was inactive at Carolina with a strained groin after never missing a game during his decade with Indianapolis, said he’s questionable to return.

“I’d say there’s a good chance, but I’d like to hit some balls that are pretty close to full speed before [playing again],” Smith said.

Pakulak averaged (an NFL-adjusted) 42.4 gross yards and 35.6 net in Smith’s place. The league added 30 yards to his gross yardage.

If Smith isn’t recovered by Sunday, the Redskins could go through the Pakulak-Wynn switch again or cut a young player to make room for the fill-in punter.
