2017

Following a knee injury to starting running back Spencer Ware in the Chiefs’ third preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks, On August 27, 2017, Hunt was named starting running back for the Chiefs.
On September 7 Hunt made his NFL debut on against the New England Patriots on Thursday Night Football. On his first career NFL carry, he had never lost a fumble during his college career, Hunt fumbled, with the ball being recovered by the Patriots’ safety Devin McCourty. Hunt went on to catch two touchdown passes – a three-yarder from quarterback Alex Smith late in the first half, and a 78-yarder in the fourth quarter, and punched in a four-yard rushing touchdown in the fourth and route to a 42–27 Chiefs win. He finished with 246 total yards from scrimmage (148 rushing, 98 receiving), the most ever in an NFL debut. Hunt joined stars Marshall Faulk (for the Indianapolis Colts in 1994, 174 yards) and Billy Sims (for the Detroit Lions in 1980, 217 yards), as the only NFL players since 1970 to debut with over 150 scrimmage yards and three touchdowns. His 148 rushing yards led all NFL rushers for Week 1. He was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for the month of September after leading the NFL with 401 rushing yards, 538 yards from scrimmage and 8.53 yards per carry. He had 117 total scrimmage yards for his seventh straight game accomplishing the feat in the 31–30 loss to the Oakland Raiders.

Hunt was named to the 2018 Pro Bowl as a rookie on December 19, 2017. Heading into Week 17, he was third in the NFL in rushing yards behind Todd Gurley and Le’Veon Bell. Both Gurley and Bell were inactive for Week 17 after both teams clinched the playoffs and were resting their players, giving Hunt a chance to claim the title. On his first and only, carry of the game, Hunt went for 35 yards for the touchdown, passing both Bell and Gurley, giving Hunt the rushing yards title for the 2017 season with 1,327 yards. This marked the second season in a row where a rookie led the league in rushing (Ezekiel Elliott in 2016).

In the 2017 season, the Chiefs finished with a 10–6 record and qualified for the playoffs. In the Wild Card Round against the Tennessee Titans, Hunt finished with 11 carries for 42 yards and his first career postseason rushing touchdown in the 22–21 defeat.

2018

Hunt remained the Chiefs’ main running back going into the 2018 season. He recorded his second career game with two touchdown rushes in the 38–27 victory over the San Francisco 49ers, in Week 3. In Week 4, on Monday Night Football against the Denver Broncos, Hunt recorded 121 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown to go along with three receptions for 54 receiving yards. Hunt was fined $26,739 for a hit where he intentionally lowered his helmet on October 6. In Week 9, he recorded 91 rushing yards and two touchdowns, along with one catch for 50 yards and a touchdown in a 37-21 win over the Cleveland Browns, earning him AFC Offensive Player of the Week.

TMZ released a video of Hunt involved in an altercation with a woman in a hotel from the previous February, on November 30, 2018. Later that same day, he was placed on the commissioner’s exempt list, prohibiting him from practicing and playing with the team. After being placed on the exempt list, the Chiefs released him. Chiefs co-owner and CEO Clark Hunt released a statement following his release indicating that Hunt was not truthful when the Chiefs asked him about the incident.
