Shark Bites

Browns RB Nick Chubb (knee) got on the practice field this week but hasn’t yet been activated from IR. HC Kevin Stefanski said Friday that he’ll meet with the team’s medical staff before deciding whether Chubb will return for this weekend’s game against the Texans. We should know his status by Saturday afternoon. Chubb will be worth getting back into fantasy lineups if he suits up. If not, Kareem Hunt will get another game as feature back.

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.

Browns RB Nick Chubb (knee) is officially active for today’s game against the Texans. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said that morning that Chubb will handle the bulk of the backfield work today. Get him back into fantasy lineups.

Browns RB Nick Chubb (knee) has been activated from IR and will return for Sunday's game vs. the Texans. Over the first 3 games of the season, Chubb averaged 17 carries and 1 target to Kareem Hunt's 13 carries and 3.7 targets. We're expecting a similar touch distribution tomorrow.
