The Blair Walsh era is curtains in Minnesota.

NFL Media's Mike Garafolo reported Tuesday that the Vikings have released their embattled kicker after another ugly performance in Sunday's 26-20 loss to the Redskins. The team later confirmed the move.

It didn't take long for Minnesota to find Walsh's replacement. The Vikings are expected to sign Kai Forbath, Garafolo reported, per a source informed of the team's plans.

Fantasy Impact:

After the Vikings ripped off 20 unanswered points against Washington, Walsh flubbed an extra point just before the half, keeping Washington within striking distance at 20-14. It was just the latest mistake in a string of high-profile gaffes for the fifth-year veteran. Walsh has missed an NFL-high four extra points this year along with four field goals. His troubles began last season, of course, when the kicker botched a 27-yard field goal attempt with 22 seconds left to hand the Seattle Seahawks a 10-9 win in the NFC wild-card round.
