As the Cleveland Browns prepare for one of their biggest games of the season, they could be getting two key members of their offense back from injuries. Speaking to reporters on Monday, Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said that he expects running back Kareem Hunt and right tackle Jack Conklin to practice this week and is "hopeful" that both players will be available to play against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

The impending returns of Hunt and Conklin mean that the Browns offense could be at full strength for the first time this season heading into a three-week stretch in which Cleveland will play Baltimore twice. Hunt hasn't played since suffering a calf injury in the Browns' Week 6 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, while Conklin has been sidelined with an elbow injury that he suffered in Cleveland's Week 8 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

With quarterback Baker Mayfield dealing with multiple injuries and wide receiver Jarvis Landry hampered by a knee injury, the Browns' offense has sputtered in recent weeks. Cleveland has scored 17 or fewer points in five of their past six games -- a stretch that dates back to Hunt's last appearance.

Following Sunday's 13-10 win over the Detroit Lions, the Browns lay claim to a 6-5 record. After facing the first-place Ravens (7-3) in Baltimore on Sunday, Cleveland will enjoy its bye week before hosting the Ravens at FirstEnergy Stadium on Dec. 12.
