Browns RB Duke Johnson missed Saturday's practice with a right hamstring injury. "We don't know the specifics," HC Freddie Kitchens told the Akron Beacon Journal. "We are going to see how it progresses. Duke is a quick healer, but we want to be cautious. We have to make sure the guy is healthy and that it is not something that lingers." RB Kareem Hunt has also sat out camp practices to this point with a groin injury.

We haven't heard much about RB Kareem Hunt since he signed with the Browns -- a good thing considering his previous off-field trouble. But Nick Shook of the Browns' official website says Hunt looked like the same player this spring as the guy we saw in Kansas City the past 2 seasons. "Even in shorts and helmets, it's clear to the naked eye that Hunt is a special player who could become the Browns' best weapon not wearing No. 13 [Odell Beckham]," Shook writes. Hunt, of course, is suspended for the first 8 games of the season, leaving him as no more than a late-rounder in fantasy drafts. But it's a reminder that he's a strong bet to be a factor -- and a problem for Nick Chubb owners -- in the season's 2nd half.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt was questioned by police after a bar fight in Cleveland late Saturday night, according to insider Mary Kay Cabot. Hunt has not been charged, and police say there is no video or documentation of Hunt being involved. Still, it's not a great look considering Hunt's history. He's already suspended for the first 8 games of 2019 for violating the league's personal-conduct policy. We'll continue to keep tabs on this latest situation.

RB Kareem Hunt has been suspended 8 games for violating the league's personal conduct policy. He was investigated for multiple incidents, including the assault at a Cleveland hotel last February. Between the missed time, a new offense to settle into and the presence of Nick Chubb, it's tough to imagine Hunt being a real fantasy factor in 2019. He's just a late-round flier in early best-ball drafts. Hunt will be a restricted free agent in 2020 and will still be just 25 when that season kicks off.

The Browns have signed former Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt. It's surprising news in terms of both timing and landing spot. Hunt is still on the Commissioner's Exempt List after video was released of his February altercation with a woman inside a Cleveland hotel. It's unclear when he'll be reinstated and how long a suspension he'll garner to open the 2019 campaign. And the Browns, of course, already have RBs Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson on the roster. We'll see when Hunt is ruled eligible to return, but his addition makes Chubb a riskier pick in early fantasy drafts. We've seen him going in the late 1st and early 2nd round of FFPC best-ball drafts.

RB Kareem Hunt went unclaimed on waivers on Monday. He's now a free agent. "Several teams" considering claiming Hunt, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, but they all ultimately decided against it. It obviously would have brought a media backlash. And Hunt is facing a lengthy suspension anyway. We're guessing that he'll get another shot in the NFL -- he's an elite talent and just 23 -- but that's certainly not guaranteed. Hunt is worth stashing on dynasty rosters, though.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that former Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt faces a suspension of more than 6 games as the NFL investigates 2 separate incidents. We wouldn't expect Hunt to get another shot with any team until this is resolved. We'll see whether his career continues after that.

And now the Chiefs have announced they're releasing RB Kareem Hunt. It's a stunning fall overall but not a shocking development given today's video release. We'll see if Hunt gets claimed on waivers like Reuben Foster did recently. Either way, Spencer Ware is your starting RB in K.C. for the rest of 2018. Damien Williams sits behind him on the depth chart and is worth a look in many leagues. Don't overreach/overpay to add Williams.

The league has placed Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt on the Commissioner's Exempt List after today's revelation of the video in which he's pushing and kicking a woman. That will sideline Hunt indefinitely, thrusting RB Spencer Ware into the starting role for Sunday's game against the Raiders. He needs to be picked up in all leagues immediately. This might signal the end of Hunt's season.

The Chiefs sent RB Kareem Hunt home after learning of the release of a video showing him abusing a woman back in February, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports. Both the team and the league are surely considering what action to take here. "Most likely short-term resolution is that Hunt would be placed on the commissioner's exempt list pending a final decision," Graziano adds. Hunt's status for this weekend's game against the Raiders is murky. If he doesn't play, Spencer Ware would step in as Kansas City's lead back and be a borderline RB1 in fantasy lineups.

Video has emerged of Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt assaulting a woman at a Cleveland hotel in February. We heard rumblings about this during the summer, but nothing has come of it since. There have been no charges filed against Hunt, and the league never issued a statement on the situation. That might change now that the video is out. It's eerily similar to the Ray Rice debacle. Rice, of course, was suspended indefinitely only after video of his incident emerged. We'll see what comes of this, but Chiefs #2 RB Spencer Ware needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues.

Monday night's Chiefs-Rams game has been moved to Los Angeles. The game was originally scheduled for Azteca Stadium in Mexico City, but there were concerns about the field conditions there. Consider the move back to U.S. soil good news for both offenses -- especially the Rams playing at home.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (knee) is ready for the start of training camp, HC Andy Reid said. Ware missed the entire 2017 campaign with a torn PCL and LCL in his right knee. He was set to open last season in a committee with Kareem Hunt but obviously returns as a pure backup. We're curious to see just how much action Ware steals from Hunt this year, though. Note that Hunt's 67.2% carry share last season was the 2nd highest mark in Reid's 19 seasons as a HC.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware has been diagnosed with a torn PCL and LCL, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He'll undergo surgery and is done for the season. Multi-ligament injuries are extremely tough and lengthy rehabs. We'll track Ware's progress, but don't consider him a lock to be ready for the start of the 2018 campaign. Kareem Hunt is entrenched as Kansas City's lead back.

Chiefs Head Athletic Trainer Rick Burkholder announced that RB Spencer Ware has a torn PCL, “in addition to other damage.” He’s going for a 2nd opinion, but the injury is likely a season-ender. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport does add that Ware is hoping to land on the IR-designated-to-return list, which would allow him to come back anytime after Week 8. That sounds optimistic, though. We’ve removed Ware from the RB rankings. Kareem Hunt is obviously the big winner here. The rookie will step into the feature role in HC Andy Reid’s offense. We detailed earlier this offseason how productive that spot has been for fantasy football. RB Charcandrick West moves up to #2 on the depth chart. And RB C.J. Spiller now stands a good chance to make the squad. Check out our updated projections for the Chiefs backfield.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Saturday that he expects RB Spencer Ware (knee) to play again this season. "It's not one of those things that's just clear cut, end of the season," Reid said. "That's not what it is right now. We've got to go through the whole process here in this case." This coincides with the previous report that Ware's ACL is intact. We're still waiting for an official diagnosis and timeline, though. Ware can't be drafted as more than a late-round bench stash at this point. Meanwhile, Reid called rookie Kareem Hunt the "regular featured back" for however long Ware is out. He's worth drafting in RB2 range now.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said after Friday night's preseason game that RB Spencer Ware is dealing with a "sprained knee." His ACL is believe to be intact, but he'll undergo further testing to check for damage to the meniscus, PCL or MCL. It sounds like Ware escaped without a season-ending injury, but he's probably still looking at a multi-week absence. We'll continue to update his status as we learn more. If you're drafting in the meantime, Ware is no more than a later-round bench stash. RB Kareem Hunt, meanwhile, got a big boost up the RB rankings.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware suffered a right knee injury in the 1st quarter of Friday night's game against the Chiefs. He left the field on a cart and the team quickly ruled him out for the game. That obviously doesn't bode well. Any missed time would deliver a huge boost to RB Kareem Hunt's fantasy outlook. Hunt was already sharing 1st-team work with Ware in the 3rd preseason contest. We'll keep an eye out for further updates.
