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.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt joined the team for Monday's practice. He'll be eligible to return from his suspension in Week 10. It's unclear what kind of role Hunt will play alongside RB Nick Chubb. But, at minimum, he's worth stashing on fantasy rosters as a high-end handcuff.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt underwent sports-hernia surgery on Thursday morning. He's expected to be sidelined 4-6 weeks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hunt, of course, is suspended for the first 8 games of the season, so the surgery shouldn't cost him any additional time. It's completely unclear what his role will be alongside Nick Chubb when he's eligible to return. Hunt is only worth stashing in fantasy leagues with deep benches.

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.
