BEREA, Ohio -- Cleveland Browns kicker Phil Dawson has an injured right calf.

Dawson, who kicks with his right leg, was listed as questionable -- a 50 percent chance of playing -- on Cleveland's injury report on Friday. He had not appeared on the report the previous two days.

With Dawson's status up in the air for Sunday's game in Baltimore, the Browns worked out several free agent kickers, who practiced field goals and kickoffs as they were being videotaped by Cleveland personnel.

Dawson, the only player left from Cleveland's 1999 expansion team, has been remarkably consistent against the Ravens, making 24 of 26 field goals in 19 career games. Dawson's 216 career field goals are tied for second in club history behind Lou Groza (234).
