Hunting, Conklin made available

BEREA (AP) – The Browns got a little healthier for the holidays – and the Ravens.

Cleveland could have two key offensive players returning for Sunday night’s AFC North clash against Baltimore as dynamic running back Kareem Hunt and two All-Pro right tackle Jack Conklin have been named for the reserve return. injuried people.

“Put the boys back together” quarterback Baker Mayfield said.

Hunt and Conklin trained on Wednesday. The roster changes don’t guarantee they’ll play this week, but it’s a positive boost as the Browns (6-5), who have been riddled with injury all season, head to their biggest match.

Hunt, who missed five games with a calf injury, was confident he could go.

“See how I feel during the week, but I really think I’ll play” said Hunt.

Without Hunt, Cleveland’s struggling offense – the Browns have scored 17 points or less in six of eight games – missed one of its most explosive playmakers. He’s also a sort of safety blanket for Mayfield, who can check the passes and send them back to number 27 and watch him go.

“Kareem, just from an energetic point of view, it’s that spark that he comes in and plays with”, said Mayfield, who has again been limited to training as he continues to deal with shoulder, foot and knee injuries. “It’s an extremely vital part for us and when it comes to the explosive part of our attack, we missed it with him.

“He’s a key part of our attack.

Mayfield struggled through last week’s uninspiring victory over Detroit. His mobility was limited in the second half by lower body injuries and at one point struggled to get back on the sidelines.

He took part in Wednesday’s tour, but Mayfield was in a sweat and a stocking cap during the portion of practice open to reporters. Mayfield took a few shots of the center but mostly watched what appeared to be a day off.

Mayfield missed a practice last week and said the mini-break helped.

“I still have the mental representatives” he said. “This is the part of the season where a lot of guys get assaulted, and a lot of guys, it’s so important to be mentally locked up during the week when you might not get some of those reps.”

Hunt rushed for 361 yards and scored five touchdowns in six games before injuring himself against Arizona on Oct. 17. He also had 20 receptions for 161 yards and is one of the NFL’s main double threats.

Hunt said watching was tough and he was eager to make a difference in this week’s prime-time game.
