On Friday, the NFL announced that former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt is suspended without pay for the first eight regular-season games for violating the league's personal conduct policy. The other altercation allegedly took place at a Kansas City night club following a Chiefs playoff loss in 2018.

Following the acquisition of Hunt in February, Browns general manager John Dorsey said in a statement : "We fully understand and respect the complexity of questions and issues in signing a player with Kareem's history and do not condone his actions".

"PRS Agency stands behind our client, Kareem Hunt, in his decision to accept the suspension handed down by the National Football League today", Hunt's agent, Dan Saffron, said in a statement to ESPN. Hunt was having an exceptional season before footage of him assaulting a woman surfaced which resulted in him being cut from the team. The Chiefs released Hunt in the middle of the 2018 regular season shortly after the video emerged. I know that my behaivor hurt a lot of people, and I again apologize to them. " They continued on saying "He has committed to take advantage of available resources to help him grow personally and as a member of the Cleveland community, and to live up to his obligations as an National Football League player".

Release of the video from the February incident, and the fact that Hunt had lied about it, prompted the Kansas City Chiefs to release the running back on November 30.

Hunt's suspension takes effect August 31, the date of final roster reductions.

He'll be suspended for eight games. Dorsey didn't excuse Hunt's behavior and said he was willing to help a young man who had made a mistake. Dorsey drafted Hunt while he was in Kansas City and felt the OH native was contrite and deserved a second chance. For Madden enthusiasts, this correlated to Hunt holding a rating of 92 just behind Todd Gurley and Le'Veon Bell who are rated at 96 and 94, respectively.

Hunt led the National Football League in rushing in 2017, and had 824 yards in 11 games in 2018 before being released. He will be entering his third National Football League season. He also showed his versatility by catching 53 passes for 455 yards and three TDs.

Before that, he was on pace to match or beat his 1327 rushing yards and had seven rushing touchdowns to go along with seven receiving touchdowns before being released. And now that they're actually playoff contenders, maybe this means running back Duke Johnson won't be as available as we thought.
