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.

A source tells insider Mary Kay Cabot that Browns RB Kareem Hunt could have returned from his ankle injury if needed in Sunday's win over the Ravens. That suggests that Hunt should be available for this coming Saturday's game vs. the Raiders. We'll track his practice participation this week.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt injured his left ankle in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. Baltimore and did not return. We'll look for an update on his status.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt (calf) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Ravens. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said this morning that Hunt is expected to be “eased in” in his first action since Week 6.

The Browns have activated RB Kareem Hunt (calf) from IR. He's expected to return for Sunday night's game against the Ravens. Check our Week 12 RB rankings to see whether Hunt makes sense for your fantasy football lineup.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Friday that he expects RB Kareem Hunt (calf) to play vs. the Ravens on Sunday night. Hunt has been out since Week 6 but returned to practice this week. In 5 games alongside RB Nick Chubb this season, Hunt has averaged 11.0 carries and 4.2 targets to Chubb's 18 carries and 1 target. Expect a similar workload split this weekend.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt (calf) has been designated to return from IR. That means he'll return to practice this week, but it doesn't necessarily mean he'll play vs. the Ravens on Sunday night. We'll keep an eye on Hunt's progress over the next few days. Cleveland would need to activate him by 4 pm ET on Saturday if he's going to play vs. Baltimore.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski expects to get RB Kareem Hunt (calf) back at practice this week and is "hopeful" he'll be able to play vs. the Ravens on Sunday. Hunt has been sidelined since Week 6. Once healthy, he should return to a significant role behind RB Nick Chubb in what will continue to be a run-centric Cleveland offense.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Wednesday that RB Kareem Hunt (calf) is "getting close" to returning. Hunt won't play in Sunday's game vs. the Lions, Stefanski said, but it sounds like a Week 12 return is possible. We'll keep you updated.

The Browns placed RB Kareem Hunt (calf) on IR. It's confirmation that he'll miss at least the next 3 weeks. We'll see if Hunt is ready to go when first eligible in Week 10. In a corresponding move, Cleveland promoted RB John Kelly from the practice squad to the active roster for Thursday night's game vs. the Broncos.

Update: HC Kevin Stefanski said Tuesday that Hunt is expected to miss in the “ballpark” of 4-6 weeks.

According to multiple reports, Browns HC Kevin Stefanski says RB Kareem Hunt will miss at least 3 weeks with the calf injury he suffered in the loss to Arizona. "Hopefully not much longer than that, but we'll see," he said, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. We'll see about Nick Chubb's status for Thursday night's game against Denver. He, of course, missed the Cardinals game with his own calf injury. If Chubb can't go, Cleveland will be down to D'Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton as backfield leaders. That would obviously mean touch-volume upside for both players. Just keep in mind that neither is likely to land in a workhorse role -- and that both are limited talents.
