RB - CLE - Questionable
Week 4 Outlook
Kareem Hunt (ribs, groin) won't participate at practice on Wednesday.
Hunt is dealing with a pair of injuries that will leave him sidelined at practice on Wednesday. HC Kevin Stefanski says that he doesn't have any concern for his Week 4 availability, so this is more than likely a maintenance day for the veteran. He should play against the Ravens, but it will be worth monitoring whether or not he has this injury designation all week.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com, RB Kareem Hunt will be active for the Cleveland Browns in Week 3 but his activity will be determined by the course of the game, says HC Kevin Stefanski.
RB Jerome Ford was declared the team's starter, and Hunt shouldn't be considered an immediate threat. Ford is younger and was the preferred option as evidenced by the Browns releasing Hunt over the offseason. Hunt could factor in on passing downs early on given his experience in the offense, but expect a limited role from the veteran RB in his first week back.
The Browns and RB Kareem Hunt have agreed to terms on a one-year, $4M contract.
Hunt will rejoin the Browns after spending the last four seasons with the team. The veteran tallied 678 total yards and four total touchdowns last season. Fantasy managers should expect Jerome Ford to remain the lead back, but Hunt should be able to carve out a role in the coming weeks.
Free agent RB Kareem Hunt is close to signing a deal with the Cleveland Browns.
Hunt is expected to reunite with the Browns after spending the last four seasons with the team. Hunt tallied 468 rushing yards, 210 receiving yards, and four total touchdowns in 17 games last season with the team. Although the Browns are bringing the veteran back into the fold, the expectation is that Jerome Ford will remain the lead back in Cleveland.
Kareem Hunt is taking a visit with the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday.
Hunt has been a free agent all offseason and has been waiting for the right situation before signing anywhere. Now, his former team is without Nick Chubb (knee) for the rest of the season, and they're looking to possibly bring Hunt in to help replace his production. It remains to be seen if any deal will get done, but a possible return to Cleveland would quite possibly be the best-case scenario for the veteran's fantasy value.
