RB Kareem Hunt will not play in tonight’s preseason finale against the Detroit Lions. Hunt underwent surgery this morning to repair a sports hernia injury. A full recovery is anticipated prior to his return to action in Week 10 of the regular season.
Kareem Hunt will be out 4-6 weeks, but with his eight-game suspension, he should be on track for Week 10 when he returns. Nick Chubb should continue to lead the backfield when Hunt returns, but Hunt is too good to keep off the field. His presence will likely cut into Chubb's workload somewhat.
