The NFL has yet to issue a ruling on disciplinary action against Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt.

And according to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, when the league does come down with a verdict, it might not be as harsh a punishment as some people expect. In an article about how the Browns are shopping running back Duke Johnson, Cabot delved into how that decision ties into Hunt.

“THEY’VE ALSO BEEN WAITING FOR WORD FROM THE NFL OFFICE ON THE LENGTH OF RUNNING BACK KAREEM HUNT’S SUSPENSION, WHICH WILL IMPACT THEIR DECISION. THAT ANNOUNCEMENT COULD COME AT ANY TIME, AND THE SUSPENSION MIGHT NOT BE AS LONG AS SOME PEOPLE EXPECT CONSIDERING HUNT SAT OUT THE LAST FIVE GAMES OF LAST SEASON AFTER THE CHIEFS CUT HIM.”
