Kareem Hunt undergoes sports hernia surgery

Kareem Hunt's abbreviated preseason is over.

The Browns running back will miss the team's final preseason game against the Detroit Lions after undergoing surgery Thursday morning to repair a sports hernia.

A full recovery is anticipated prior to his return to action in Week 10 of the regular season. 

Hunt appeared in the Browns' Weeks 2 and 3 preseason contests against the Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, carrying the ball seven times for 17 yards. He also caught one pass for 3 yards.

Hunt will serve an eight-game suspension before returning for the Browns' Week 10 game against the Buffalo Bills on Nov. 11 at FirstEnergy Stadium.
