In Cleveland, he'll replace kicker Patrick Murray, who got hurt during a practice on Friday. The Browns now have six starters injured since the beginning of the 2016 regular season. Saturday morning, the Browns signed former Philadelphia Eagles place kicker Cody Parkey. Murray injured that same knee last season, resulting in a season-ending ACL tear. He went on to set a rookie single-season scoring record with 150 points (32-36 FG, 54-54 PAT) and made the Pro Bowl. Murray beat out incumbent Travis Coons in training camp this summer. In addition to Murray, the Brown's top cornerback, Joe Haden, is now questionable with a groin injury and missed Friday's walk-through. Quarterbacks Robert Griffin III (broken hand), Josh McCown (broken collarbone), centre Cam Erving (bruised lung), wide receiver Corey Coleman (broken hand) and defensive end Carl Nassib (broken hand) are all out this week and a few of them will be sidelined for several more games.
Murray appeared in two games this season and was 1 for 2 on field goal attempts, plus 3 of 4 on extra points. He played three games for the Eagles past year, making three of four field goals and all seven extra points before being lost for the season with a groin injury.
