The Cleveland Browns officially re-signed running back Kareem Hunt on Wednesday.

Terms were not disclosed, but ESPN reported the 28-year-old free agent landed a one-year deal worth up to $4 million.

Hunt worked out for the Browns on Tuesday.

He will help to replace four-time 1,000-yard rusher Nick Chubb, who was placed on season-ending injured reserve Wednesday with torn knee ligaments.

Coach Kevin Stefanski announced Tuesday that Jerome Ford will be the featured back for the Browns (1-1) on Sunday against the visiting Tennessee Titans (1-1).

Hunt returns after playing the last four seasons with the Browns, who allowed him to walk in free agency.

He has rushed for 4,025 yards and 31 touchdowns and caught 211 passes for 1,806 yards and 17 TDs in 76 games (36 starts) with the Kansas City Chiefs (2017-18) and Browns.

Hunt led the NFL with 1,327 rushing yards as a Chiefs rookie in 2017, earning a Pro Bowl selection and Offensive Rookie of the Year honors. Kansas City drafted the Ohio native in the third round out of Toledo.
