This comes after the news that K Younghoe Koo is expected to miss time because of his groin strain.
Forbath, 32, originally signed on with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of back in 2011. Forbath had brief stints with the Buccaneers, Redskins, Saints, and Vikings before signing on with the Jaguars in 2018.
Jacksonville released Forbath last year and had a short stay with the Patriots before joining the Cowboys in December. Dallas elected to re-sign him this offseason back in March but cut him loose coming out of training camp.
Forbath has been on and off of the Panthers’ practice squad this season.
In 2019, Forbath converted 11 of 11 field-goal attempts for the Patriots and Cowboys to go along with 11 of 12 extra-point tries (91.7 percent).
Fry, 24, wound up going undrafted out of South Carolina back in 2017. Fry joined the Orlando Apollos of the now-defunct AAF this past spring and converted all 14 field goals he attempted with a long of 44 yards.
The Bears signed him to a contract this offseason before cutting him loose during the preseason. He had a brief stint with the Ravens before signing a futures contract with the Panthers this past January.
Fry later waived and claimed by the Buccaneers, but was waived at the start of the regular season.
During his four-year college career, Fry converted 66 of 88 field goal attempts (75 percent) to go along with 161 of 162 extra point tries (99.4 percent) over the course of 51 games.
