The Browns like their 1-2 punch at running back, but most of the time, Kareem Hunt takes the field when Nick Chubb goes to the sideline. This week, they’re considering some packages with Chubb and Hunt on the field together.

Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said today that he is considering using Chubb and Hunt at the same time.

“Those are all things we talk about,” Stefanski said. “We want to make sure whatever we do is sound in thinking and sound schematically, those type of things. Those are two great players. We’ve got to make sure that they’re involved so that we can be productive in the run game and in the pass game.”

The Browns have scored a total of just 30 points in their last three games, and Stefanski acknowledged that he has to find ways to put more points on the board. That may involve using both of his running backs.

  1. Never understood why they don’t have either. Both don’t have to run – one can go out to catch a pass or to block – keep the defenses guessing.

  2. Why would you even tell someone that……. unless you want someone to prepare for it. If it is true, then why would you tell everyone. Doesn’t make sense. …………

  3. Kevin Mack and Earnest Byner were always on the field together. If teams want to put 9 in the box, just go old fashioned wishbone and occasionally burn them with a tight end pass. Worked for the Browns all the time in the 80s. The NFL has become pass happy because the caliber of DBs has been suspect in the past 10 years. A lot of interceptions this year so we’ll see a lot more run being introduced back into the game.

  4. This feels like a no brainer when you consider the 3rd RB has performed great this season and could spell each of them. So it’s not like they still wouldn’t be fresh.
