CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns are making a kicking change, moving on from Austin Seibert after a rough Week 1 outing and moving Cody Parkey up from the practice squad onto the 53-man roster to replace him, according to the team.

Seibert, who was waived Monday, missed an extra point and a field goal Sunday against the Ravens in a blowout 38-6 loss.

Selected by former general manager John Dorsey in the fifth round of the 2019 Draft, Seibert struggled in his first training camp and cast concerns on his ability to perform. During the season, however, Seibert made his first 16 field goals and set the Browns rookie scoring record with 105 points.

Parkey rejoins the Browns after being waived by the team three years ago. He played for the Browns in 2016, when he made 20 of his 25 field-goal attempts and 20 of his 21 extra-point attempts.

He was waived from the Browns in 2017 and spent time with Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears (where he missed the famous field goal attempt dubbed the “double doink”) and most recently the Tennessee Titans.

The Browns signed Parkey to their practice squad last week.

Parkey will kick for the Browns on Thursday night as they move past their crushing Sunday loss and face the Cincinnati Bengals at FirstEnergy Stadium. You can catch the game on News 5.
