Browns punter Reggie Hodges has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance in Cleveland's 13-10 win over the Miami Dolphins, the NFL announced Wednesday.
Hodges punted nine times for 438 yards (48.7 average, 43.3 net average), placing two kicks inside the Dolphins' 20-yard line, including one that was downed at the 1. Hodges has recorded a league-leading 13 punts inside the 10 this season.
Hodges is the first Browns player to be named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week since Josh Cribbs was selected in Week 11 of the 2009 season. Hodges joined Dave Zastudil (2009), Kyle Richardson (2005) and Tom Tupa (1994) as the only Browns punters to win the award since it was established in 1984.
With linebacker David Bowens named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week and running back Peyton Hillis named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week earlier this season, Hodges' honor marked the first time since 2005 that the Browns have had players selected for all three awards in the same season. Quarterback Trent Dilfer, linebacker Andra Davis and kicker Phil Dawson earned awards that season.
