McCarthy: Packers won’t replace Crosby

Mason Crosby missed a 34-yard field-goal attempt during the second quarter of the Packers’ 37-36 loss to the Steelers on Sunday. It was the fourth consecutive game in which the typically reliable Crosby has missed a field-goal attempt.

On Monday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy expressed confidence that his third-year kicker can turn around his fortunes.

“Mason Crosby’s our kicker,” McCarthy said at his Monday news conference. “He will be our kicker going forward. Zero interest in bringing in a kicker.”

Crosby is 24 of 33 on field-goal attempts this season, after making 27 of 34 attempts in 2008 and 31 of 39 in 2007.
