KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Are you a Facebook person? 'TikTok'er? Twitter-addicted?

It depended on which media platform you witnessed Kareem Hunt Sunday night as to his thoughts on returning to Kansas City.

For instance, on his Instagram page posting live from the victorious Browns' locker room, Hunt said that "next week's personal" in reference to playing at Arrowhead Stadium for the first time since the Chiefs released him during the 2018 season.

Not long after that, Hunt was a little more understated during his Zoom news conference with the media.

"There really ain't much to be said about that," Hunt said when asked about his return to KC.

Hunt likely is still a little steamed he missed out on two AFC Championship games and a Super Bowl after Kansas City cut him following a video that surfaced showing Hunt kicking a woman in a downtown Cleveland hotel.

"He knows a lot of those guys that were on the team last year," Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid said. "And feels really bad about not being a part of that."

At the same time, Hunt said, he stays in close contact with a number of his former teammates in Kansas City.

"That's where I started," Hunt said. "They did a lot for me. And I've got a lot of people on that team that look out for me and care for me as a person. And I care for them, too."

Hunt, originally from Cleveland, has found a second NFL life there. He's second on the team in rushing and one of the leading receivers as well.

"I like Kareem," Reid said. "I'm glad things are going well for him."

Of course, Reid doesn't want things to go too well this week as the Chiefs host the Browns in the AFC Divisional Round on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.

And Hunt isn't much for well-wishes, either.

"Sorry, but we're enemies this week, fellas."
