NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the Browns are "hopeful" RB Nick Chubb (knee) is able to return for next Sunday's game vs. the Texans. Chubb is expected to practice this week for the 1st time since suffering an MCL injury in Week 4. We'll monitor his progress.
Browns HC Kevin Stefanski ruled RB Nick Chubb (calf) out for Thursday night's game against the Broncos. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 8. Cleveland will roll with D'Ernest Johnson, Demetric Felton and John Kelly in the backfield vs. Denver.
Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Monday that he's "not ruling out" RB Nick Chubb playing Thursday night against the Broncos, according to ESPN's Jake Trotter. "He's progressing," the coach added. We'll see what happens over the next few days. Make sure you set up insurance if Chubb would be in your fantasy football lineup, though.
The Browns have ruled RB Nick Chubb out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals because of a calf injury. His absence obviously leaves room for Kareem Hunt to lead the backfield and hit the week as a RB1 across fantasy football formats. Demetric Felton will be involved as well, but he has been more receiver than RB so far, tallying 7 targets vs. 0 rushing attempts over the first 5 games. RB D'Ernest Johnson has logged 0 offensive snaps the past 2 weeks and in 3 of 5 games this year, but he'll likely be involved as well.
Browns RBs Nick Chubb (calf) and Kareem Hunt (knee, wrist) missed their 2nd straight practices on Thursday. This looks like a case of the Browns getting their 2 RBs some mid-week rest, but check back tomorrow for another update on the situation.
The Browns and RB Nick Chubb have agreed “in principle” to a 3-year extension worth $36.6 million, with $20 million guaranteed, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The average money falls right in line with other recent RB extensions and shows we can expect Chubb to remain at the center of Cleveland’s offense for at least the next couple of seasons.
