Orlovsky: The Browns are NFL's most disappointing football team (1:07).

Coach Kevin Stefanski announced Monday that Kareem Hunt, Cleveland Browns running back, will miss "several week" due to a calf injury.

Hunt sustained the injury against the Arizona Cardinals. Hunt had to be taken off the field and then was carried to the locker room. Hunt will be placed on injured reserve and will likely miss at least three games.

A source said that "hopefully not more than that", but it will be seen," according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Hunt took the place of Nick Chubb, Pro Bowl running back, who was out with an injury to his calf.

Stefanski stated that he is "not ruling out" Chubb playing against the Denver Broncos on Thursday.

Stefanski stated, "He's moving forward."

Hunt is the 2017 NFL rushing champion. He has 361 yards rushing and five touchdowns. His average speed of 5.2 yards per run makes him the NFL's rushing champ. Hunt also has 20 receptions, totalling 161 yards.

The Browns will have to rely on Demetric Felton and D'Ernest Johnson if Chubb is not available for Thursday's game.

Stefanski also said that Jeremiah Owusu–Koramoah, a rookie linebacker, would miss several weeks due to an ankle injury he sustained Sunday. Owusu Koramoah was a second-round selection from Notre Dame and had eight tackles against Cardinals.
