The Cleveland Browns may have just lost a major piece of their offense.
Running back Kareem Hunt left Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals in the fourth quarter on a cart after sustaining what has been ruled a calf injury on a non-contact play.
The veteran running back went down on all fours as teammates kneeled around him and trainers came to evaluate. He needed to be helped off the field and did not put any weight on his right leg.
Once Hunt got to the sidelines he was taken to the locker room via a cart and ruled out for the remainder of the game.
ESPN’s Kimberley Martin reported before the game that Hunt said he was dealing with pain and soreness and felt discomfort when cutting and running full speed at times.
Hunt’s injury marked a brutal day for the Browns, who took a physical beating from the Arizona Cardinals.
Odell Beckham Jr. left the game in the first half with a shoulder injury before returning while quarterback Baker Mayfield, who is already playing with a partially torn labrum, appeared to be in immense pain after taking a big hit and fumble early in the second half.
Mayfield eventually returned under center after further evaluation on the sideline.
