Nick Chubb’s Injury Status
In a press conference following the loss to the Steelers on Monday Night Football, Browns’ head coach Kevin Stefanski told reporters that Nick Chubb will most likely be out for the entire season with a significant knee injury. Multiple sources say that Chubb may have suffered multiple torn ligaments, and will conduct tests just to confirm, but it does not look good for the Browns’ starter.

Where do the Browns go from Here?
After Chubb was taken out of the game, the backup running back Jerome Ford had to fill in for the star. He had a pretty decent outing, with 106 rushing yards including a 69-yard run. But the Browns were not able to recover from the injury to Nick Chubb, as they dropped the game to the Steelers 26-22.
There are a few notable free agents still out on the market if the Browns decide to not go with Ford as their starter for the season. A couple of these players are some familiar names to fans, including Leonard Fournette and Kareem Hunt. Both of these guys would be solid pick-ups for the Browns, but they will most likely not be as impactful to the team as Chubb is.
More updates on the specifics are still to come on the injury to Nick Chubb, and hopefully, they are not as significant as experts say it is, but it looks pretty likely that it will be a season-ending injury at the very least.
