Browns running back Kareem Hunt ruptured an adductor during the season, undergoing sports hernia surgery recently to repair it, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports.
Dr. William Meyers, a Philadelphia-based specialist, performed the surgery.
Hunt spent much of the season on the Browns’ injury report with a groin injury but played 15 games and the playoff game. He signed with the team Sept. 20 after Nick Chubb’s season-ending knee injury, and Hunt rushed for 411 yards and nine touchdowns.
Hunt, who becomes a free agent in March, has indicated he wants to stay in Cleveland but is planning on testing the market.
