Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt now knows his fate. He has been suspended eight games, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Hunt was suspended eight games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.
He was suspended for an incident that happened while he was a member of the Kansas City Chiefs. Hunt was caught on camera assaulting a woman outside of his room at an Ohio hotel.
The incident happened around February 2018. However, it did not become major news until late November when TMZ released the video.
That night that the video was released, Hunt was released by the Chiefs. In addition, he was placed on the Commissioner’s List.
In the off-season, he signed a one-year deal with the Browns, who are now stacked with their off-season moves. Without Hunt for the first eight-games, Cleveland will have to rely on Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson.
The 23-year-old Willoughby, Ohio native played in 11 games in 2018 before being released. He had 181 carries for 824 yards and seven touchdowns.
He also had 26 touchdowns for 378 yards and seven additional touchdowns.
In his career, Hunt made 27 NFL starts. He had 453 carries for 2,151 yards and 15 touchdowns. He also had 26 receptions for 378 yards and seven more touchdowns.
