Redfern blew out his knee last week, while filling in for regular punter Sam Martin, who’s on the non-football injury list. That left kicker Matt Prater to finish last week’s game against the Cardinals.
Cleary finished last season with Dallas and was in camp with them this year, and represents another effort to fill in on the edges. Locke was in camp with the Colts this year but had spent the previous four seasons with the Vikings.
