RB Kareem Hunt (10.15.21)

On carrying the load while RB Nick Chubb is out for Sunday’s game:

“Never want to see a guy like Nick go down. Definitely what he means to this team is crazy. We have a lot of good backs in this RB room. I feel like we should be able to hold it down until he gets back.”


On if he embraces the opportunity for more touches this week:

“I do not embrace it. I love going out there and seeing Nick run and going out there and doing my thing, too. It will be a good game. I am excited to go out there and face a very good team.”


On if he had a sense this week in practice whether Chubb would not be able to play this week:

“Maybe. I was just taking it day by day.”


On how have RBs Demetric Felton and D’Ernest Johnson have handled being patient while waiting for more opportunities with Chubb now out:

“That is what those guys are here for. They will be able to get some reps for sure in the backfield. I am excited to see those guys play. I know D’Ernest and Felton are playmakers for sure. Our running back room, we try not to have any drop off.”


On how Chubb has been this week behind the scenes:

“Still Nick. Quiet. Working hard.”


On Chubb’s spirits this week:

“He is in good spirits. He is going to be there for us and do whatever he can to help us.”
