Kareem Hunt is one step closer to making his debut for the Browns.
Hunt has been given permission to join the team and began practicing with them on Monday.
He looked quick and agile in his practice drills.

Hunt underwent sports hernia surgery and spent the first half of the season recovering while also serving his 8 game suspension that was issued by the NFL while he was with the Kansas City Chiefs.
General Manager John Dorsey said:
“With regards to Kareem, it’s my understanding that he’s doing really well, I think he’s ahead of schedule in terms of his rehabilitation and in a couple weeks here he’s going to be back and I can’t wait to see him,’’ Browns GM John Dorsey said on Wednesday.
Hunt will not be permitted to return until Nov 10th against the Buffalo Bills.
The Browns will have a good problem on their hands with Hunt in the backfield.
Nick Chubb has proven to be one of the best young running backs in the NFL.
You have to believe that the Browns will utilize both backs on the field together at times with Hunt having the ability to play the slot or split out wide.
In 2 seasons in the NFL, Hunt has 15 touchdowns and 2,151 rushing yards. As a receiver, he has 10 touchdowns and 833 yards.
