Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb, widely regarded as one of the top running backs in the NFL, is facing a devastating setback after suffering a severe knee injury during Monday night's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport has reported that Chubb is likely to miss the rest of the season due to this injury, which is believed to involve damage to multiple ligaments. While Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski has expressed his expectation of a season-ending injury, he awaits official confirmation through imaging scheduled for Tuesday.

The injury occurred in the second quarter when Chubb was tackled low by Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, causing his left knee to buckle inward. The distressing nature of the injury was evident, with Chubb requiring immediate medical attention and being carted off the field.

Steelers fans displayed their sportsmanship by chanting "Chubb" as he was taken away, visibly emotional. Notably, this isn't Chubb's first encounter with knee injuries, as he had previously torn the PCL, MCL, and LCL in his left knee during his college career at Georgia.

Unfortunately, this latest injury affects the same knee. Nick Chubb's absence will undoubtedly leave a significant void for the Browns. The four-time Pro Bowler has consistently achieved 1,000-yard rushing seasons and had started the current campaign impressively, amassing 106 rushing yards in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

In his absence, Jerome Ford stepped up with a 3-yard touchdown catch and an impressive 69-yard run, but Cleveland will need more players to contribute to fill the void left by Chubb, who has rarely missed games in his NFL career. Beyond his on-field prowess, Chubb is highly respected in the Browns' locker room and across the league.


The outpouring of support on social media following his injury reflects his standing in the football community. Moving forward without Chubb will pose a significant challenge for the Browns, who now must recover from two losses in Monday night's game.
