Browns RB Chubb unsure of return vs. Texans

Back at practice, Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb is taking a tentative approach to whether he will be able to suit up against the Houston Texans on Sunday.

“I am not sure,” Chubb said Wednesday when asked his confidence level about returning this week from a knee injury. “There is still a lot more to it than me just feeling good. I have to go through doctors, team athletic trainers and coaches. It is more than just me saying I feel great.”

Chubb has been sidelined since Week 4, when he sustained an MCL sprain in his right knee during the second quarter of a 49-38 win over the Dallas Cowboys. The Browns designated him for return from injured reserve Monday, though coach Kevin Stefanski has also preached patience with the process.

“We’ll talk to Nick, we’ll talk to the trainers and we’ll talk to the doctors and see once we get through the week,” Stefanski said. “Really get to Friday and then put that plan together. But definitely, we’ll talk to Nick and see what he’s comfortable with.”

The Browns have three weeks to get Chubb back on the field following his designation.

In the first four games of the season, Chubb rushed 57 times for 335 yards and four touchdowns. Kareem Hunt has filled in, and he has 529 rushing yards and three scores through eight games.

“It feels great being back out there with the team,” Chubb said of returning to practice. “It has been about five weeks, and I have 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.”
