Kareem Hunt suspended eight games by NFL
The NFL has made a decision regarding Kareem Hunt, and the running back will be forced to sit out the first half of the 2019 season.
On Friday, the NFL announced that Hunt has been suspended eight games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. He will not appeal.
The #Browns had expected 8 to 10 games for RB Kareem Hunt when they signed him. It turns out to be 8, as the league says Hunt accepts the punishment and did not appeal.

The Browns took a chance by signing Hunt without knowing what the extent of the disciplinary action would be, but many were expecting the star running back to be suspended for much longer.
Hunt was waived by the Chiefs back in November after a video surfaced that showed him shoving and kicking a woman at a hotel. Browns general manager John Dorsey was with the Chiefs at the time they drafted Hunt, and he said he believes the 23-year-old has “showed true remorse” and is taking the appropriate steps to improve as a person by undergoing treatment.
