Kareem Hunt will ‘definitely have a role’ in Week 10

The Browns signed Kareem Hunt this offseason and will welcome him back in Week 10 after an eight game suspension for multiple allegations of violence.

The Cleveland Browns brought running back Kareem Hunt back to the practice field two weeks ago, and in Week 10 they are expected to get him back into game action. Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens told the media on Monday that Hunt will “definitely have a role” this weekend when they face the Buffalo Bills, according to beat writer Mary Kay Cabot.

Hunt served an eight-game suspension to open the season after violating the league’s personal conduct policy. He was involved in at least three separate instances of violence, including one involving domestic violence. He took part in the Browns training camp and preseason, but sat the first nine weeks of the regular season (eight games and a bye).

Hunt has not fantasy value right now with Nick Chubb playing as well as any running back in the NFL. Hunt might eventually emerge as an option elsewhere, but as long as he is in Cleveland, he is no more than a backup to Chubb.
