Cundiff (knee) missed practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

With that in mind, coach Mike Pettine indicated Friday that the Browns have a contingency plan in place if Cundiff can't kick on Sunday. In such a scenario, the team would need to make a roster move by Saturday afternoon.

Cundiff kicked four field goals, including a game-winning 37-yarder as time expired, and converted both extra point attempts in Sunday's victory over the Falcons.

Cundiff's only miss was a 60-yard bomb that was nearly ran back by Devin Hester, but the Browns were able to avoid catastrophe. Even though all four of Cundiff's makes were under 40 yards, it was still the best fantasy day of the season for the 34-year-old kicker.

Cundiff turned in his worst fantasy performance of the season, but that was largely a product of a struggling Cleveland offense that only managed to find the endzone once.

Cundiff hit from 32 yards, and missed a 44-yard attempt, while going 3-for-3 on extra points in Thursday's victory over the Bengals.

Cundiff missed his first field goal since prior to the Browns' Week 4 bye, but it didn't have a major impact on the game, as the team still pulled through with a convincing victory. It was another modest evening for fantasy owners, who would have loved to see that final kick find the uprights in order to help start their weeks off on the right track. On the bright side, Cundiff still had more fantasy points than opposing quarterback Andy Dalton.

Cundiff converted field goal attempts of 40 and 22 yards in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars.

Cundiff was the only player who managed to put points on the board for the Browns on Sunday, but the ineffectiveness of the offensive unit as a whole limited his overall production. Cundiff is now a perfect 3-for-3 on the season on field goal attempts between 40 and 49 yards.
