Shark Bites

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.

Recent Shark Bites

Browns RB Nick Chubb has been activated from the COVID list, putting him on track to return for Sunday's game vs. the Lions. Chubb racked up 30 carries to D'Ernest Johnson's 12 across Weeks 8 and 9. We'd expect a similar split this weekend. The matchup vs. Detroit's 30th-ranked RB defense makes Chubb a RB1 and Johnson a RB3 or flex play.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Thursday that RB Nick Chubb (COVID) is "trending in the right direction." Perhaps that means Chubb has returned his 1st negative COVID test and just needs the 2nd. We're still assuming he'll be cleared for Sunday's game vs. the Lions, but stay tuned to Shark Bites for updates on the situation.

Browns RB Nick Chubb remains on the COVID list. RB John Kelly was removed from the list on Thursday morning, but Chubb and RB Demetric Felton were not. Chubb still has a few days to be cleared for Sunday's game vs. the Lions, but he's not a lock to be available for that one. D'Ernest Johnson would be a RB1 if Chubb remains out.

Browns RBs Nick Chubb, Demetric Felton and John Kelly will miss this weekend's game vs. the Patriots on the COVID list, HC Kevin Stefanski said Friday. We'd expect Chubb back for Week 11 but will continue to keep tabs on his status. It'll be D'Ernest Johnson and Brian Hill, who was signed earlier this week, in Cleveland's backfield on Sunday. Johnson should handle the vast majority of the RB touches against New England's middling run defense. Johnson, of course, ran for 146 yards and a score on 22 carries vs. the Broncos back in Week 7.

Browns RBs Nick Chubb and Demetric Felton tested positive for COVID, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Both guys are vaccinated, per Schefter, giving them a chance to be cleared in time for Sunday's game against the Patriots. We'll monitor the situation, but RB D'Ernest Johnson needs to be rostered in all fantasy leagues. He'd be a borderline RB1 if Chubb is out on Sunday.
