Hunt, who will become eligible to play in an NFL game during Week 10, is currently serving an 8-game suspension for a domestic violence incident.
The 2017 NFL rushing champion is also recovering from an August sports hernia surgery, but is expected to be fully healthy when he becomes eligible to play against the Bills on November 10.
On Monday, Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens was asked how Hunt looked on the practice field.
“Very pleased and I thought he looked good. Looks like he was in great shape, moved around good,” Kitchens told the media.
Hunt joins a Browns team that already has running back Nick Chubb sitting at fourth in the league in rushing (based on yards per game – 101.7) and averaging 5.3 yards per carry, so it remains to be seen how, and how much, he will be used in the team’s offense.
Reactions to the news of Hunt’s return has understandably been mixed, but there certainly has been no shortage of hot takes from myopic Cleveland Browns fans.
Hunt is a better RB than Chubb in every way. Hunt will take over the starting spot right away and be the work horse. Sell Chubb high, now.— James West (@jameswestcowboy) October 21, 2019
