The Cleveland Browns activated running back Kareem Hunt and right tackle Jack Conklin from injured reserve on Saturday.

Coach Kevin Stefanski said Friday that he expects Hunt and Conklin will play Sunday night against the Baltimore Ravens.

Hunt has missed the past five games with a calf injury. Conklin has missed the past three games with a dislocated elbow.

“Getting the boys back together,” quarterback Baker Mayfield said earlier this week. “We’re obviously looking forward to it. … It’ll be great. Those are two extremely key pieces in our offense, and obviously Kareem is a great playmaker and Jack, his play speaks for itself.”

Hunt, 26, was carted off in the fourth quarter against the Arizona Cardinals on Oct. 17 with a non-contact injury. He has 361 yards rushing with five touchdowns on the season.

Conklin, 27, was injured Oct. 31 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has started all 78 games in his career with the Tennessee Titans (2016-19) and Browns. The 2016 first-round pick was an All-Pro first team selection in 2016 and 2020.
