In Week 3 of the season, Kareem Hunt, a native of Cleveland, re-signed with the Browns following Nick Chubb’s season-ending knee injury. Hunt’s familiarity with the team’s system and culture played a significant role in his return, which aimed to strengthen the running back lineup.

Hunt proved to be a valuable asset to the Browns’ offense, leading the team in touchdowns with nine, marking a career-high in rushing touchdowns for him. Despite battling a nagging groin injury throughout the season, Hunt continued to contribute to the team’s success. Recently, he underwent sports hernia surgery to address the injury.

Despite the typical recovery time for such a procedure being six-to-eight weeks, Hunt remarkably played through the injury without missing a game since joining the team in Week 3. Although his yards per carry dropped to a career-low of three yards, there are factors contributing to his challenges in gaining consistent yardage.

Nevertheless, Hunt remained a crucial contributor to the Browns’ performance this season, even scoring both touchdowns in the team’s 45-14 loss to the Texans during Wild Card Weekend. Expressing his desire to return to the Browns next season, Hunt also emphasized his unwavering support for the team regardless of where his future lies.
