ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins kicker John Hall strained his right groin during practice Thursday, his third leg injury of the season.

Hall will be held out of practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.

"We're concerned about it," trainer Bubba Tyer said.

Hall was hurt kicking during a special teams drill. He tried one more kick, then had to stop.

Earlier this season, Hall was playing with two strained hamstrings. He hurt the right one, his kicking leg, in the opener against Tampa Bay and left the following week against the New York Giants.

Swedish kicker Ola Kimrin, who was in training camp with the Redskins, was signed to the practice squad as insurance, but was released after the Giants game.

Hall has made seven of nine field goals and all six extra point attempts this season.

Meanwhile, linebacker LaVar Arrington took part in live drills Thursday, but he appears as if he'll miss his fourth consecutive game since having knee surgery.

"We're making improvement, and he's doing better," Tyer said. "But he's not quite there."

Tyer said defensive end Phillip Daniels will need another two to four weeks to recover from a groin injury. Also, right tackle Kenyatta Jones is bothered again by a sore ankle, making Ray Brown the starter for Sunday's game. Brown has a hamstring injury, but is listed as probable.

and the season of trials continues.

Redskins sign Kimrin to fill in for injured K Hall

ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins signed Ola Kimrin on Saturday to replace injured kicker John Hall.

Kimrin will kick against the Chicago Bears on Sunday because Hall is out with a groin injury sustained during a drill Thursday.

Kimrin, a native of Sweden, has played three seasons in NFL Europe and spent training camp with Denver in 2002 and Dallas in 2003. His 65-yard field goal in an exhibition game with the Broncos would have broken the NFL record had it been in a regular-season game.

Kimrin spent this year's training camp with the Redskins and made all four field goal attempts in preseason, including a game-winning 39-yarder against Denver in the Hall of Fame game.

To make room for Kimrin on the roster, the Redskins released tight end Brian Kozlowksi.
