Zastudil has been bothered by a sore right knee and was limited in practice all week. The Browns listed Zastudil as questionable -- a 50 percent chance of playing -- on their injury report.

The Browns worked out several punters Friday and decided to sign Hodges, who appeared in four games this season for the Tennessee Titans. Hodges also has played for the St. Louis Rams, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets. He was waived by the Titans on Oct. 27.

Zastudil, who has experienced knee soreness all season, has been one of the few bright spots for the Browns (1-7). His 25 punts inside the 20-yard line are the most in the NFL.
