The NFL suspended Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt eight games for violating the league's personal conduct policy, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The league has been investigating three separate incidents in which Hunt is accused of assaulting others. The big one, of course, is the incident in a hotel early last year in which Hunt shoved and then kicked a woman while she was on the ground.
Hunt was a member of the Kansas City Chiefs when a video surfaced of him hitting a kicking a woman in Cleveland last year. The team released him.
The Browns signed Hunt on a one-year deal this offseason.
Here is Hunt's statement, following the decision of the NFL.
Hunt will be allowed to practice with the team through training camp until the suspension begins the first week of the regular season.
In 11 games with the Chiefs in 2018, Hunt totaled 824 rushing yards and 7 scores on the ground in addition to his 378 yards and 7 scores through the air.
