Steve Christie of the Buffalo Bills is now the NFL's second-most accurate field-goal kicker of all time.

Christie has hit 80.1 percent of his kicks (157 of 196) in his seven-year NFL career. San Diego's John Carney is the NFL's all-time leader at 80.19 percent.

Offensive guard Ruben Brown (ankle) and offensive tackle Glenn Parker (calf) -- neither of whom was able to finish last Sunday night's game against New England -- are listed as questionable for the Redskins' game. Both practiced Wednesday, although Brown worked on a limited basis.

"They didn't want me to do too much to reinjure it or anything," Brown said. "I was just a little sore, but (today) I'll be going full speed."

Defensive end Bruce Smith (knee) and nose tackle Ted Washington (elbow) are probable. Smith said his left knee, which was injured on a cut block during the Patriots' game, was still sore.
Redskins center Cory Raymer will miss four to six weeks with the back injury he suffered in a car accident Tuesday and be replaced by Jeff Uhlenhake.

Defensive end Sterling Palmer (knee) is doubtful, while offensive guard Tre' Johnson (knee) and defensive tackle Marc Boutte (knee) are questionable.

Running back Terry Allen (wrist), fullback William Bell (elbow), center Trevor Matich (shoulder), offensive tackle Ed Simmons (knee) and defensive end Tony Woods (knee) are probable.
Receiver Steve Tasker was honored Wednesday as the Bills' 1995 "Unsung Hero," presented by the Playoff Corp.

The heroes on each of the NFL's 30 teams were selected in voting by their peers and fans.

Tasker was presented with a poster-sized version of his "Unsung Hero" trading card.
As of Wednesday, 3,000 tickets remained for Sunday. They must be sold by 4 p.m. today for the game to be seen on Channel 29.
