It’s been a tough season for Kevin Stefanski in his first full season as head coach of the Cleveland Browns. The AFC North franchise are currently on a 5-3 record heading into Week 10. They are third in the divisional table behind the unbeaten Pittsburgh Steelers and Lamar Jackson-led Baltimore Ravens.
The Browns last against Derek Carr’s Las Vegas Raiders by a 16-6 margin last weekend. They will host Deshaun Watson-led Houston Texans at the FirstEnergy Stadium on Sunday. They’ve received a major boost heading into this weekend’s tie with relation to highly-rated Nick Chubb.
NFL insider Ian Rapoport was the first to report that the Cleveland Browns have activated running back, Nick Chubb, from their injury reserve list. The 2018 second-round draft pick last featured in Week 4 against the Washington Football Team. Chubb was part of the Browns line-up for their opening four games this season.
On 57 rush attempts, Nick Chubb has 335 rushing yards with four touchdowns. He was impressive for the Cleveland-based franchise last season. He amassed a total of 1,494 rushing yards with eight TDs in 2019 and was even voted to his first Pro Bowl.
Chubb has been with the Browns since 2018 and has established himself as one of their most deadly attacking players. However, his injury issues continue to haunt him.
The Browns are already without WR Odell Beckham Jr. who is out for the season with an ACL injury. They will welcome the return of Chubb to the starting line-up as they gear up for a crunching end to their 2020 NFL campaign.
