Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Browns RB Kareem Hunt is expected to miss several weeks with his calf injury. He'll likely head to IR. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Rapoport adds calf injuries are always tough to predict, but that the rough estimate for Hunt is 4-6 weeks. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports Hunt is out "at least three weeks." Nick Chubb didn't play in Week 6 due to his own calf issue and it remains to be seen if he'll be available for Thursday's Week 7 contest against the Broncos. D'Ernest Johnson would likely operate as Cleveland's early down option if Chubb sits, which instantly gives him low-end RB2 value. Demetric Felton could also receiving more pass catching work out of the backfield. Once Chubb returns, though, he could be in line for career-best usage.
