Browns Nick Chubb takes knee rehab ‘day by day,’ says hitting Minkah Fitzpatrick ‘part of the game’

Chubb enjoyed career highs in rushing attempts (302) and rushing yards (1,525) and tied the best touchdown mark of his career (12) in 2022 before lasting just two games last season and being taken off the field in the second quarter on that fateful Monday. Night game last season. He ran for 170 yards on 28 carries and caught four passes for 21 yards over the first two contests.

The four-time Pro Bowl player admitted it was tough “not being able to play the game with your guys” but said he was grateful the Browns stuck with him after the devastating setback.

“Definitely a blessing,” he said. “They could have cut me and left me hanging, right, but they did a great job. I want to be here in Cleveland — they know that — so we’re at a great point.”

Is a return to the first week possible? No one knows yet, but what the story will be. It’s already set to be a high-energy atmosphere at Cleveland Browns Stadium on opening Sunday of the 2024 NFL season, as they host the Dallas Cowboys in what is expected to be Tom Brady’s first appearance as a play-by-play analyst for FOX.

Seeing Chubb emerge from the tunnel before a game, whether it happens in Week 1 or after, could bring the house down. Browns fans love Chubb, and it seems the feeling is mutual.
