CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Cleveland Browns K Cade York deleted a social media post following Thursday’s preseason matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to reports from Sports Illustrated’s Frankie Taddeo.

Sports Illustrated reported the second-year kicker shared a social media post from the Browns’ Instagram account that celebrated a first-half field goal in the game against the reigning NFC Champions.

York, who went 3-for-4 in the contest, later deleted the post after missing a potential game-winning kick, Sports Illustrated said.

The Browns K also missed a field goal in the team’s first preseason matchup against the Washington Commanders.

“Confidence is never going to be an issue for me,” the LSU product said after the game.

Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski commented on the post during Friday’s media availability, saying York was not the one who created the post.

“I’m aware of that. That was not Cade who posted that. I’ll talk to him about that. And all of our players, we know the rules. They’re not allowed to be – none of us, players, coaches, we’re not allowed to be on our phones once kickoff hits. So we’ll address that with the guys.”

Kevin Stefanski, Cleveland Browns Head Coach

Stefanski also voiced his support for the second-year kicker, saying the organization has “a ton of confidence” in York’s abilities.

The Browns are back in action on Aug. 26 against the reigning Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs.
