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.
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.
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.
