The Browns will have a new kicker for their Week 15 contest against the Bengals.

Gone will be Billy Cundiff who has missed a field goal in each of the last five games for the Browns. Cundiff, 34, injured himself in practice on Thursday but a move was already in the works when the Browns held a tryout for four kickers earlier in the week.

Cundiff injured his kicking knee on Thursday and will receive an injury settlement.

Joining the Browns will be Garrett Hartley, another kicker who has struggled with accuracy in his career. Hartley was 22-of-30 last yer before being cut by the Saints late in the season. He has made 81.2 percent of his attempt in his carrer.
