Browns’ Kareem Hunt, Troy Hill ‘unlikely’ to play vs. Raiders

The Cleveland Browns got a much needed win against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, but carrying that momentum into their Saturday matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders is going to be difficult. 

Head coach Kevin Stefanski said on Monday that because of the shorter week, running back Kareem Hunt and cornerback Troy Hill are “unlikely” to play against the Raiders due to their injuries.

Hunt injured his ankle in the first half of Sunday’s game, receiving a low hit during the team’s first touchdown drive. After, Stefanski said that he and Hunt both believed he could have come back into the game if he was needed, but didn’t want to chance it. Hunt reportedly went for a precautionary MRI on Monday, but Stefanski didn’t confirm that or reveal any additional details about his injury. 

The Browns had just gotten Hunt back after a stay on injured reserve with a calf injury, so it’s disappointing to lose him (even for just one game) so soon after getting him back. But Stefanski knows that’s just how life goes in the NFL.

“That’s the nature of the beast,” Stefanski said via “Obviously, you hate injuries and the competitor that Kareem is, you hate that he’s going through this, but he’s got to rehab and get back as soon as he can.”

Hill injured his knee sometime on Sunday, but stayed in the game and wound up playing 85 percent of the Browns’ defensive snaps. Stefanski didn’t have any additional details about his injury.
