Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said TE Austin Hooper (appendectomy) will definitely be able to face Texans on Nov. 15. Stefanski said he feels good about how RB Nick Chubb (knee) and RG Wyatt Teller (calf) are progressing.
The return of Chubb isn't set in stone but it sounds like he's progressing. That would force Hunt back into a split of the workload at least. At TE, Bryant and Njoku take a hit as Hooper would return to the TE1 role. According to the tweet, we should get more updates as the Browns progress through their Week 9 bye.

Browns TE Austin Hooper (abdomen, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 8. Harrison Bryant and David Njoku would pick up the slack. Bryant is the better play. Njoku (knee) took full practice reps all week.
