BEREA, OH (WOIO) - Kareem Hunt was straightforward and apologetic with the media following practice at the Cleveland Browns facility.

The majority of the questions for Hunt revolved around an off-the-field incident that took place in Cleveland in February 2018.

Surveillance footage showed the NFL running back pushing and kicking a woman at The Metropolitan at The 9 in downtown Cleveland.

He was released by the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 30, 2018, shortly after the video surfaced, but was picked up by the Cleveland Browns in February 2019.

Since then, Kareem has gone through anger management counseling and even went to his old school Willoughby South to talk with students about his mistakes, so that they don’t make the same.

Don’t react off emotion, think about the long run.”

He is still actively going to counseling sessions and has had a ton of reflection the past few months.

During the Q&A he expressed his wishes to apologize to the female victim.

“If I was to see her, I would apologize to her face. But I haven’t seen her," Hunt said.

General Manager John Dorsey drafted the 23-year-old in Kansas City. Dorsey was the same one that signed off on him becoming a Cleveland Brown.

“He (John Dorsey) knows the type of person I am, that wasn’t me. I defintely made a mistake and I apologize once again.”

As far as football goes, Hunt practiced with the team Wednesday but he won’t be able to see the field until Week 10 after he serves an 8-game suspension.

He could potentially suit up Nov. 11, at home, against the Buffalo Bills.

For now, he says he plans on making everyone around him better.
