Kareem Hunt (groin) idle Tuesday for Browns

Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt (groin) is not practicing on Tuesday for the Wild Card Round versus the Houston Texans.

What It Means:

Hunt only played seven snaps last week, but that had more to do with the Browns playing in a meaningless game and wanting to feature the younger Pierre Strong, rather than limiting the veteran due to an injury. Hunt should be fine for Saturday's game in Houston and will likely see around 10 opportunities behind Jerome Ford.

numberFire's models project Hunt for 8.5 FanDuel points in the Wild Card Round, with 10.3 carries, 42.7 rushing yards, 1.0 receptions, and 7.2 receiving yards. The Texans had the third-best run defense in the league this season, according to our opponent-adjusted efficiency rankings.
