Nick Chubb Out for the Season With Knee Injury

Nick Chubb, the best running back for the Cleveland Browns, was hurt in his knee in a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night. He had to be taken off the field on a cart. After the game, the coach of the Browns, Kevin Stefanski, said that he thinks Chubb will be out for the rest of the season.

Chubb ran into Minkah Fitzpatrick, a safety for the Steelers, at the end of a 5-yard run early in the second quarter. Chubb's legs bent strangely when Fitzpatrick tackled him.

After the play, a teammate tried to help Chubb stand up, but Chubb shook his head and held his left knee. He took off his helmet and lay on his side.


Chubb hurt his left knee badly in college at Georgia in 2015. He dislocated it and tore three ligaments. His injury on Monday night was bad to look at, so ESPN didn't show it again.

Chubb lay on the ground for a few minutes while his teammates gathered around him to pray. He was then taken off the field on a cart. Chubb had 64 yards rushing on 10 carries before he got hurt.

Jerome Ford took Chubb's place and scored a touchdown on a 3-yard pass right away. Ford then ran for 2 points to put the Browns ahead 11-7.

Many other NFL players and stars, including LeBron James and some of Chubb's former teammates like Baker Mayfield and Sony Michel, sent messages of support on social media after Chubb's injury.
