The Browns will be without their top running back for the foreseeable future.
The Steelers and Browns were locked in a typical, hard-hitting AFC North matchup, when one hit ended Nick Chubb’s game and potentially his season, if the injury is as bad as it seemed.
Chubb was in the middle of a stellar game: He toted the rock 10 times for 64 yards before the injury, and was threatening to score when the injury occurred.
Now, it’s unclear when Chubb may retake the field for the Browns.
Here’s the latest on the running back’s injury:
Nick Chubb injury update
Chubb appeared to have suffered a gruesome leg injury on “Monday Night Football” vs. the Steelers. Chubb’s leg seems to have gotten trapped underneath him on a tackle, and he was almost immediately ruled out with a knee injury.
Minkah Fitzpatrick delivered a low tackle to Chubb’s knee while attempting to prevent him from reaching the end zone.
Browns teammates attempted to help Chubb to his feet, but the running back seemed to know the severity of the injury and stayed down on the turf.
A cart would later take Chubb to the locker room following the injury.
The ESPN broadcast would not show a replay of the injury because of its graphic nature. The big screen in Pittsburgh would show the replay of the injury, and fans in attendance would loudly grown.
For viewers who want a closer look at the injury, you can see it here. (Editor’s note: Video contains graphic injury.)
