Former Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt has been suspended by the NFL for 8 games for violations of the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
The announcement comes months after the Kansas City Chiefs cut Hunt from the team following the release of a video showing an altercation between Hunt and a woman outside Hunt’s Cleveland hotel apartment.
Reports say Hunt’s attorney says Hunt will accept the suspension, which is without pay.
Hunt, who is now with the Cleveland Browns, was previously placed on the Commissioner’s Exempt List on November 30th.
According to a statement by the NFL, Hunt has advised the league office that he accepts responsibility for his conduct and the discipline that has been imposed.
Hunt won’t be eligible to play again until the Browns’ ninth regular season game.
In a statement released by the Browns, Hunt again apologized for his actions last year and said he respected the league’s decision.
