Kareem Hunt appears to have avoided significant injury in Week 14

Post-game update: Hunt could have played in the second half in Week 14 if needed, per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler. That’s great news for the Browns who knocked off the division leading Ravens in Week 14.

Update: Hunt is officially questionable to return to today’s action.

Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt suffered a leg injury in the first quarter of Sunday’s matchup against the Baltimore Ravens.

He was evaluated in the medical tent before walking to the locker room for further evaluation. As of now, there is no timetable for his return.

Losing Hunt would be an unfortunate blow to the Browns, whose offense has suffered a slew of injuries over the last two months of the season. They got a much needed reprieve with a bye week last week but could now potentially be without one of their dynamic backs.

Hunt himself has missed numerous games this year due to various injuries. In seven games throughout the 2021 season, he has taken 76 handoffs for 381 yards and five touchdowns. In his absence, backup D’Ernest Johnson has stepped in to fill the gap.

The Browns hold a 10-0 lead on the division leading Ravens in the second quarter, so we’ll see if they can maintain it without Hunt’s services.
