Hunt and Owusu-Koramoah both suffered their respective injuries during Cleveland’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
Both will now miss the Browns’ Oct. 31 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, as they are each required to sit at least three weeks.
They are eligible to return Nov. 14 when the Browns host the New England Patriots.
Cleveland is already without starting running back Nick Chubb, who missed Sunday’s loss. He is not expected to play Thursday night against the Denver Broncos either.
Hunt has rushed for 361 yards and five touchdowns. He has also caught 20 passes for 161 yards.
Selected in the second round of April’s draft out of Notre Dame, Owusu-Koramoah quickly became a key contributor on Cleveland’s defense.
The rookie has logged 29 total tackles, four passes defended, a forced fumble, a tackle-for-loss and half a sack.
