The Cleveland Browns grabbed an underwhelming Week 11 win to stay in the thick of the playoff race, but cannot seem to find their footing. That may soon change as the team recently got some great news regarding injury updates for two key offensive players in Kareem Hunt and Jack Conklin.

Kareem Hunt Injury Update

Hunt has missed the last five games while spending time on the injured reserve due to a calf injury. The Browns have been sorely missing his ability to run routes out of the backfield and make defenders miss in the open field. When healthy, Hunt joins starter Nick Chubb in what is one of the best RB duos in the NFL.

The 26-year-old posted 361 rushing yards and 161 receiving yards on a total of 89 touches before going down (5 games played). Having him back on the field would only improve a Cleveland rushing attack that is already averaging a league-high 156.8 yards on the ground per game.

Jack Conklin Injury Update

Meanwhile, Conklin originally suffered a dislocated elbow against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 8 and has been on the sideline ever since. The starting right guard's return would benefit the Browns quite a lot. Cleveland is one of just six NFL teams that have allowed at least 30 sacks so far this season.

The sixth-year pro has a shot to play in Week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens as does Hunt. For now, the Browns head into that matchup as 4-point road underdogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. More information regarding these two players' statuses should be released throughout the week.
