Browns RB Chubb on track to return vs. Texans

Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb practiced for the second straight day on Friday as he recovers from a knee injury and he is expected to be activated off injured reserve to play in Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans.

The Browns face a Saturday deadline to make the roster move official and coach Kevin Stefanski said the team will use the time to further evaluate if Chubb’s right knee is ready to handle the pounding.

Cleveland designated Chubb as a player who can return from injured reserve on Monday and has been observing the 24-year-old’s practice sessions closely.

“We’re going to do what’s best for Nick and what’s best for the Browns,” Stefanski told reporters.

Stefanski said he was reluctant to announce anything on Chubb’s status without consulting team doctors and trainers.

Chubb injured the knee in Week 4 against the Dallas Cowboys and has missed the past four games. Cleveland also had a bye week last weekend.

Earlier this week, Chubb said the knee was feeling good and he indicated he was itching to get back on the field.

“It feels great being back out there with the team,” Chubb said Wednesday. “It’s been about five weeks, and I’ve been bored of sitting here and rehabbing every day so I was excited to get out there and actually get to run and hang out with the boys on the field.”

Chubb finished second in the NFL in rushing last season with 1,494 yards. He was off to a strong start this season prior to the injury with 335 yards and four touchdowns and a stellar 5.9 average per carry.

Also, linebacker Jacob Phillips (knee) was listed as questionable after being limited in practice on Friday. Guard Wyatt Teller (calf), who is officially listed as questionable, is expected to return after missing the past three games. Center JC Tretter (knee), guard Joel Bitonio (elbow) and tackle Jack Conklin (knee) are also questionable for Sunday’s game.

Texans running back David Johnson and G Senio Kelemete were both declared out for Sunday with concussion recovery, while defensive end Charles Omenihu (hamstring) and linebacker Dylan Cole (back) were designated as questionable.
