Shorthanded Browns to have Hunt on pitch count

The Cardinals-Browns game was set up to be one of the weekend’s best, but things got messy even before kickoff. The unbeaten Cardinals — 3-point underdogs against the 3-2 Browns in Cleveland — won’t have head coach Kliff Kingsbury, who tested positive for COVID-19. The teams had a combined 17 players listed as questionable on the Friday injury report, with the Browns having two out for the game — including star running back Nick Chubb.

That would normally mean a very busy day for backup Kareem Hunt, except that Hunt is dealing with wrist and knee issues and was one of those listed as questionable. According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Media, Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said Hunt looked good in practice Friday and will in fact get more work than usual. But only up to a point. Stefanski said he has a certain number of touches in mind for Hunt: “I don’t want to kill Kareem.” How many is that? We’ll soon find out, but with winds up to 30 mph expected in Cleveland, there may be plenty of running plays in this one.
