Browns RB Kareem Hunt says that he’d love to remain with the team long-term. "I was born and raised here," Hunt told beat writer Mary Kay Cabot. "I'd love to finish my career here and just keep playing the game with [Nick] Chubb longer and with the great guys on this great team.” Trade rumors followed Hunt this offseason, but for now, indications are that he'll remain in Cleveland -- at least in the short term. Hunt, 27 in August, enters the final season of a 2-year deal.

Browns GM Andrew Berry commented on the skill set of 5th-round RB Jerome Ford. "We really think Jerome has a well-rounded game," Berry said. "A bigger guy who can really run. I actually think one of the areas in his game that’s probably a little bit understated is just his ability in the passing game. He’s a guy we think can generate explosive plays for us.” Browns scout Max Paulus added that Ford will work on his kick return ability this offseason. Of course, Ford’s more of a dynasty hold than a redraft sleeper. Behind Nick Chubb, the Browns return contract-year RB Kareem Hunt. As an RFA, D’Ernest Johnson was tendered this offseason, although he’s yet to put pen to paper. "I wouldn’t touch on any individual contract situation," Berry said. "We still think very highly of D’Ernest. Look, we would anticipate him being here moving forward, but we’ll see."

The Browns selected RB Jerome Ford in Round 5 of the 2022 NFL Draft. A 4-star high school recruit, Ford started out at Alabama before transferring to Cincinnati. He broke out as a senior with 215-1,1319-19 rushing (plus 21 catches) alongside QB Desmond Ridder. Ford’s tape shows some boom or bust tendencies, but there’s enough here in raw speed alone to pique our interest. At 5’11, 210 pounds, he ran a 4.46 forty with a strong 1.55 ten-yard split. Ford will sit behind Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt in Cleveland this year, but Hunt is set to hit free agency next offseason. Chubb is signed through 2024.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Bengals. RB D’Ernest Johnson came off the COVID list earlier this week and will be the #2 RB behind Nick Chubb today.

Browns RB D'Ernest Johnson has been activated from the COVID list and is eligible to play vs. the Bengals on Sunday. We'll see if RB Kareem Hunt, who's questionable with his ankle injury, ends up playing.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s finale vs. the Bengals. Cleveland has been eliminated from playoff contention and might not want to play Hunt at less than 100%. We’ll find out whether he’s active around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. RB D'Ernest Johnson was placed on the COVID list on Monday and remains there as of Friday afternoon.

Browns RB D'Ernest Johnson was placed on the COVID list on Monday. We'll see if he can get cleared in time for Sunday's finale vs. the Bengals. Johnson surprisingly out-snapped RB Nick Chubb 39 to 30 in the Week 17 loss to Pittsburgh but finished with just 14 yards on 6 touches. He'll be off the fantasy radar if RB Kareem Hunt returns from his ankle injury.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt (ankle) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Steelers. He put in 2 limited practices this week, so he seemingly has a good shot to be back for next weekend's finale vs. the Bengals. Nick Chubb will dominate work in Cleveland's backfield tonight.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Steelers. He put in limited practices on Friday and Saturday. Hunt would be a shaky fantasy play coming off the high-ankle sprain if he does suit up. Throw in the Monday night kickoff, and Hunt should remain on fantasy benches. His return would put a dent in RB Nick Chubb's upside, though.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt returned to a limited practice on Friday – his first official workout since suffering a high-ankle sprain back in Week 14. Hunt now has a shot to play vs. the Steelers on Monday night, but we’ll get another update on his status on Saturday afternoon.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's off the COVID list but still seems unlikely to play vs. the Steelers on Monday night after his Week 14 high-ankle sprain.

The Browns on Monday activated RB Kareem Hunt off the COVID list. He likely would have missed the Week 16 game with an ankle sprain anyway, and we'll have to watch that situation to see whether Hunt will be ready to play next Monday night at Pittsburgh. Cleveland also activated DE Jadeveon Clowney and S Ronnie Harrison -- among others -- from the COVID list, which should clear them to play Week 17.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's game vs. the Raiders. Believed to be dealing with a high-ankle sprain, he'll likely miss multiple games. RB Nick Chubb should get workhorse usage this weekend, while #2 RB D'Ernest Johnson could push for 10+ touches for the undermanned Browns.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski labeled RB Kareem Hunt "week to week" with his ankle injury and called him "unlikely" to play vs. the Raiders on Saturday. It sounds like Hunt could miss time beyond that. His absence will elevate D'Ernest Johnson to the #2 spot on the depth chart but ultimately mean more touches for RB Nick Chubb. In 3 games without Hunt this season, Chubb has averaged 17.3 carries and 1.7 targets. Johnson averaged 5.7 carries and 1 target across those 3 games.
