News flash: Browns RB Kareem Hunt undergoes sports

CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt, set to become a free agent, underwent a sports hernia surgery and is now recovering from the procedure, a league source confirmed to News 5.

Hunt underwent surgery to repair a torn hamstring he suffered this season. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler first reported this. For most of the season, the Browns have had a groin injury on their injury report.

Although he regularly rested a day or two before games, he played week after week after the injury.

This season, Hunt played in 15 games for the Browns after re-signing with the team following Nick Chubb’s season-ending knee injury in Week 2.

Hunt recorded 411 yards and nine touchdowns on 135 carries. He was a crucial part of the Browns’ red zone success throughout the year, punching through the end zone often when handed the ball near the goal line.

“I’m really happy with the way he played and the way he played. Obviously we were out of sorts before Nick got injured, but it’s a credit to Kareem that he’s staying in good shape.” “We brought him in, we coached him, he looked great, took over the system right away, played really good football for us, made big-impact plays and scored touchdowns,” coach Kevin Stefanski said . I said at the end. of the season, so he’s given us tremendous value and he’s just a fighter. I liked the way he ran, the way he ran gave us the big boost we needed.”

Hunt will be recovering from the surgery for the next several weeks while also testing free agency, although he hopes to remain a Cleveland Brown, as he said at the end of the season.

The season ends.“I think it would be okay to come back now that the opportunity has come. This is my hometown and I want to do nothing but help them win a Super Bowl,” Hunt said. “That is my main hope. No matter what happens, even if I play for another team, even if they win a championship in Cleveland, I will always be happy and content. This is my hometown. If that happens, I will join the parade and support them. “I wish the organization and the Cleveland Browns all the best and I’m excited to be a part of this long-term journey.”
