The Cleveland Browns are activating running back Kareem Hunt and right tackle Jack Conklin from injured reserve, and coach Kevin Stefanski said he expects they will play Sunday night against the Baltimore Ravens.

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

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.

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.

The return of Hunt should take some of the pressure off quarterback Baker Mayfield, who has been bothered by shoulder, knee and groin injuries. Offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt said Friday morning that Mayfield had a strong practice on Thursday and that the quarterback is heading in the right direction.
