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.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt injured his right leg in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Cardinals. He needed help getting off the field, putting no weight on that leg. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Hunt has been ruled out with a calf injury.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt (wrist, knee) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. HC Kevin Stefanski told NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero that Hunt is “beat up” -- but added that he’s still in for an expanded role with RB Nick Chubb (calf) out. Hunt is a RB1 in Week 6 fantasy lineups.

Here's NFL Network's Tom Pelissero on Browns RB Kareem Hunt's Week 6 status: "[HC] Kevin Stefanski told me RB Kareem Hunt (wrist/knee) is beat up, but he looked good in practice Friday and will get more work than usual today against the Cardinals with Nick Chubb (calf) out. Stefanski has a number of touches in mind." How's that for a mixed message? Hunt got in just 1 limited practice this week and is listed as questionable. It's clear from Pelissero's report that Hunt won't be at 100% today. But with Chubb out -- and D'Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton Cleveland's only other RBs -- we're still expecting an expanded workload for Hunt.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt (wrist, knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Cardinals. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, although we haven't heard any concern about his status. Assuming those injuries aren't a limiting factor on Sunday, Hunt should get workhorse usage with RB Nick Chubb out.

The Browns have ruled RB Nick Chubb out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals because of a calf injury. His absence obviously leaves room for Kareem Hunt to lead the backfield and hit the week as a RB1 across fantasy football formats. Demetric Felton will be involved as well, but he has been more receiver than RB so far, tallying 7 targets vs. 0 rushing attempts over the first 5 games. RB D'Ernest Johnson has logged 0 offensive snaps the past 2 weeks and in 3 of 5 games this year, but he'll likely be involved as well.

Browns RBs Nick Chubb (calf) and Kareem Hunt (knee, wrist) missed their 2nd straight practices on Thursday. This looks like a case of the Browns getting their 2 RBs some mid-week rest, but check back tomorrow for another update on the situation.

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.
