The NFL announced Friday they have suspended Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt for the first eight games of the 2019 season.

If the Patriots do host the Browns in Week 1 of the National Football League season, they will not face running back Kareem Hunt.

After the signing, Hunt issued a statement in which he once again apologized for the incident that occurred last February, and said he is "committed to following the necessary steps to learn and to be a better and healthier person from this situation".

The NFL said the suspension was in connection with two incidents.

Hunt said in a written statement released by the Browns that he met last week with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and respects the ruling.

"I want to again apologize for my actions previous year". Hunt added that "there is a lot of hard work ahead of me before I'm able to fully return to playing the game I love". " They continued on saying "He has committed to take advantage of available resources to help him grow personally and as a member of the Cleveland community, and to live up to his obligations as an National Football League player".

Hunt was a member of the Kansas City Chiefs when a video surfaced of him shoving and kicking a woman in Cleveland last winter.

Browns general manager John Dorsey drafted Hunt for the Chiefs in 2017, when Dorsey was the team's GM. Because of the incident, Cleveland's decision to bring Hunt onboard led to a great deal of controversy.

The NFL had waited to finish its investigation of that incident - along with a separate reported situation involving Hunt in which he allegedly punched a man in the face at an OH resort last June - before assessing his punishment.

Dorsey has been unwavering in his support of Hunt. Now that the suspension has been handed down, Hunt will forfeit $503,529 of his 2019 pay with the Browns. "I know he has been diligently working on that".

Hunt's suspension comes during a busy week for the Browns, who acquired star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on Tuesday in a trade with the New York Giants. Last year, his second in the league, he recorded 824 yards rushing and seven touchdowns in 11 games.

In his rookie season, he led the National Football League with 1,327 yards and eight touchdowns. After friends try to hold back Hunt, he pushes one of them into the woman, which causes both individuals to fall.
