Demetric Felton, RB (CLE)

Likely to have role behind Hunt

Felton is expected to get some touches behind lead back Kareem Hunt (wrist/knee) in Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

With Nick Chubb (calf) sitting out Week 6, Hunt -- who is listed as questionable but expected to play -- will elevate into the clear No. 1 role out of the backfield for the first time all season. Between them, Chubb and Hunt have dominated the touches out of the backfield, accounting for 33.4 per contest through the first five weeks. Per Pelissero, head coach Kevin Stefanski acknowledged that he'll be careful not to run Hunt into the ground, so he should be expected to absorb only a portion of Chubb's vacated workload. As such, Felton and fellow backup running back D'Ernest Johnson should both have roles in the Week 6 game plans, after the two were largely non-factors through the first five contests. Expect Johnson to operate as the top alternative on the ground, while Felton -- who has yet to log an NFL carry -- should fill more of a third-down or change-of-pace role. Felton has been targeted seven times across 22 offensive snaps this season, recording six receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown.
