Browns put kicker Cody Parkey (quad) on IR

The Cleveland Browns will have a new kicker this season after placing veteran Cody Parkey on injured reserve Monday with a quad injury.

Parkey suffered the injury in Sunday’s preseason game against the New York Giants. Parkey made 10 of 11 field goal attempts last season and converted 43 of 47 extra point attempts.

“I’m disappointed for Cody,” Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said. “He’s a veteran, came up big for us in some big moments last season.”

Stefanski said Sunday he wasn’t sure when the injury occurred. Parkey converted the extra point on the Browns’ first score in the first quarter.

Going on IR now ensures Parkey is done for the season, at least with Cleveland. He could end up with another team later in the season if healthy and released from IR.

Parkey was in his second stint with Cleveland, having kicked for the Browns in 2016. He made the Pro Bowl as a rookie with Philadelphia.

Chase McLaughlin appears to be the frontrunner to land the starting job unless the Browns opt to bring in another kicker. McLaughlin has kicked in just 15 NFL games with five different teams, including four in 2020 with Jacksonville and the New York Jets. He’s 22 for 28 in field-goal attempts for his career and has converted all but one extra point (96.9 percent).
