The Browns' running backs keep getting hurt

The Browns are still trying to figure out their backfield after losing star RB Nick Chubb for the season.

Veteran RB Kareem Hunt, who just signed a one-year deal with Cleveland last week, showed up on the injury report Wednesday with a ribs/groin injury.

RB Jerome Ford, who head coach Kevin Stefanski named as "the lead back," was also limited due to a shoulder injury.

Ford has filled in nicely for Chubb, totaling 160 yards and a touchdown on the ground as well as five catches for 58 yards and two touchdowns.

Pierre Strong remains the only fully healthy running back on the Browns 53-man roster, which is concerning given they are a run-first team.

Hunt is expected to play Sunday against the Ravens.Cleveland also has the option to elevate RB Deon Jackson, who signed to the practice squad on Tuesday,

if Hunt or Ford were unable to play this weekend.The Browns will need to run the ball effectively in their Week 4 divisional matchup with the Ravens,

especially given QB Deshaun Watson's underwhelming play.Baltimore has allowed the eighth-least rushing yards per game (92.3) in the league while Cleveland has rushed

for the fourth-most yards per game (160.7).It seems like it will be a classic AFC North battle in the trenches.
