Kicker Jonathan Brown is back with the Cincinnati Bengals after the team signed the kicker to the practice squad Thursday.

A first-year player out of Louisville, Brown originally signed with the Bengals in May 2016 as a college free agent. He suffered an injury in spring workouts that year and was placed on Injured Reserve before ultimately being waived with an injury settlement.
