Browns activate RB Chubb after knee injury, will face Texans
CLEVELAND (AP) — Nick Chubb should be turned off to the browns once more.
Cleveland on Saturday triggered the star from the injured list to clear him the path for Sunday to match Houston with a right knee after four missed games.
This is Chubb's first week after he injured his knee and blocked his victory over Dallas on early Oct. 4.
The Browns (5-3) rushed the NFL as Chubb was injured, but without the 2019 Pro Bowler the offense of Claveland wasn't the same.
Chubb looks quick and making all its cuts this week without reversal, but Coach Kevin Stefanski had waited for the medical personnel to speak to the team before agreeing to place him back on the lists.
He'll come back to face a defense of Houston which makes a league of 159.5 meters to rush any game.
Chubb rushed for 1,494 yards later last year. Odell Beckham Jr., who sustained a seasonal knee injury last month, changes his systems without a broad receiver and deep threat.
In 2018, Chubb made a second-round selection for 335 yards and won four touchdowns in 3+ contests.
It was 5.9 yards per carry on average.
The Browns have one of the strongest backfield tandems in their League with Chubb and Kareem Search, who captured an early championship with the Kansas City in 2017.
Michael Dunn from the preparation staff has was raised by the team.
After liner Chris Hubbard is on the COVID-19 reserve list on Friday, he will send the Brown some depth.
Wyatt Teller, who came back this week after a strained calf, had begun the last three matches by Hubbard.
