Head coach Dan Quinn was adamant that looking too closely at practice stats is a "dangerous subject," but did concede that Walsh's performance took a dip between Monday and Tuesday. Quinn stressed that in-game results are a far stronger indicator of ability, and the coaching staff will have to make a decision on the starting kicker based on that.

Walsh converted his other three attempts, but he previously went 0 for 3 in a 17-14 loss to the Redskins in Week 9.
