Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt and linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah are out several weeks after sustaining injuries in Sunday's game.

Hunt is expected to land on injured reserve and miss 4-6 weeks, per NFL Network. The same could be in store for Owusu-Koramoah.

Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said Monday the team is still determining the outlook for quarterback Baker Mayfield and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

Hunt, 26, was carted off in the fourth quarter against the Arizona Cardinals with a non-contact injury. Hunt started in place of Pro Bowl running back Nick Chubb, who missed the game with a calf injury. Hunt was listed on the injury report last week with a calf injury and missed a practice.

Hunt had 14 carries for 66 yards and three catches for 12 yards before leaving. He has 361 yards rushing with five touchdowns on the season.

Owusu-Koramoah left Sunday's loss with an ankle injury. Owusu-Koramoah was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain, per NFL Network, an injury that generally takes 4-6 weeks. He was credited with eight tackles and a pass defensed before leaving.

Mayfield landed on his left (non-throwing) shoulder on a strip-sack in the third quarter. He was already playing with a partially torn labrum in that shoulder.

After two brief visits to the medical tent, Mayfield returned to the field, but with the game out of reach, he was pulled for the final five minutes and backup Case Keenum finished the game.

Beckham (shoulder) was screaming in pain on the sideline after being driven into the turf by two Cardinal defenders following a 17-yard reception. He finished the first half with two catches for 42 yards.

The Browns (3-3) have a quick turnaround with a game against the Denver Broncos (3-3) on Thursday in Cleveland.
