Nick ChubbBrown’s coach Kevin Stefansky said on Monday that the captain of the Browns attack had suffered a heart muscle injury and was expected to be out “for several weeks”.
Chubb, who will be placed on injured reserves, will not need surgery and is expected to return sometime this season.
“With Nick’s knowledge, he will work hard in rehab,” said Stefansky. And so, I know it’s hard to see your teammate go down like this but with the knowledge that Nick will work his heels for a comeback.
“You never want to see your players on the ground like that. Again, Nick doesn’t say much like you guys, but he’s the captain of this soccer team. His teammates are really responding to him and the way work behaves. He’s frustrated, but I can promise you that he is This fix will attack. “
Chubb, who finished second in the NFL in rush races last season, tops Brown with 335 quick yards and four touchdowns. He’s already posted two matches from 100 yards per season and has more than 20 yards out of any NFL player since 2018.
Without chipping, brown will depend on the trio Karim HuntAnd the Dernst Johnson And the Dontrell Hilliard To help fill in the void. The group rose dramatically on Sunday in Dallas, as Johnson led the way with 95 yards and Hunt added 71 yards and two drops. WR Odell Beckham Jr. It had 73 in two campaigns, including 50 in a relegation to seal the game that ran late in the fourth quarter. For the first time in the team’s history, Brown had three players with 70 yards or more.
“It was nice to see these guys moving forward, the offensive line and the narrow ends and the wide receivers that they all strain,” said Stefansky, “and the contestants were running through arm thrusts and break-ins, so it was good to see that.” . “But you lose a Nick’s caliber player, we’re going to need these men to get through the entire attack.”
