Browns RB Kareem Hunt (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Bengals. RB D’Ernest Johnson came off the COVID list earlier this week and will be the #2 RB behind Nick Chubb today.
Browns RB Kareem Hunt returned to team drills Sunday, according to multiple reports. That followed closely behind reports of a “hold-in” and trade request for Hunt. It sounds like the RB has done what he can in pursuit of the extension and will now get back to business as usual. Hunt doesn’t have much leverage in trying to force the new contract
Browns RB Kareem Hunt has requested a trade, according to insider Mary Kay Cabot, but the team has already told him it won't happen. That could change, of course, especially if Hunt threatens to sit out regular-season games. We'll see where this goes. A move out of Cleveland would almost certainly help Hunt's fantasy value. It'd also be a boost for RB Nick Chubb and turn RB D'Ernest Johnson into a nice pick in the double-digit rounds of fantasy drafts.
RB Kareem Hunt has told the Browns that he won’t take part in team drills until he gets a contract extension, ESPN reports. Hunt is in the 2nd season of a 2-year deal. He also resides in a crowded backfield. That leaves little leverage for the veteran. We’ll see where this goes, but we’re not altering Hunt’s fantasy football outlook at this point
Browns RB Kareem Hunt says that he’d love to remain with the team long-term. "I was born and raised here," Hunt told beat writer Mary Kay Cabot. "I'd love to finish my career here and just keep playing the game with [Nick] Chubb longer and with the great guys on this great team.” Trade rumors followed Hunt this offseason, but for now, indications are that he'll remain in Cleveland -- at least in the short term. Hunt, 27 in August, enters the final season of a 2-year deal.
Browns RB Kareem Hunt (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s finale vs. the Bengals. Cleveland has been eliminated from playoff contention and might not want to play Hunt at less than 100%. We’ll find out whether he’s active around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. RB D'Ernest Johnson was placed on the COVID list on Monday and remains there as of Friday afternoon.
